If you are looking in your freezer and the meat is a little low, take advantage of the meat sales this week. Beef and chicken are at stock-up prices at several stores.

Additionally, it is the start of the season for canned goods and fresh fruit to have lower prices. Do an inventory check on your pantry to get a game plan targeting your shelves for the stockpile.

During this season, you will want to purchase extra Sunday newspapers to take advantage of sales items. By taking advantage of rock bottom prices on items that will keep well for months, you will see a reduction in your grocery budget overall.

As you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan. This is the 41st week of the year, concurrently; you would place $41 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $861 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
