Coupon clipping

Stores are offering sales for Independence Day. Most of the food you will see on sale is for outside cooking and grilling. This week you will see specialty meats on sale at most stores including ribeye steaks and St. Louis-style pork ribs.

Additionally, you will see the typical meats such as chicken legs and breasts, pork tenderloins and ground beef at a reduced price.

This week, several stores have great prices on ice cream, and it is a good time to stock up for the holiday. When purchasing ice cream at stock-up prices, make plans to use a cooler and dry ice to keep your ice cream frozen.

Packing your frozen foods so they arrive in perfect condition is simple.

First, wrap the dry ice with newspapers or with several brown paper bags and then place the dry ice in the bottom of the cooler. Special note — always use a towel or gloves when handling dry ice.

Using dry ice instead of regular wet ice will prevent a leaking mess. Dry ice at grocery stores is priced around $2.99 per pound, and one pound is sufficient for transportation of frozen foods. Special note — not all grocery stores sell dry ice. Double check before making plans to transport frozen items.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money-saving plan. This is the 26th week of the year.

Place $26 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $351 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
