From TrueCouponing.com Katie Kiefer is here to show us how to get the best deals this fall.
It's time to Cash in on Summer Clearance items. - The Couponing concept is to buy products when they are at the lowest price and "stock up" until they go on sale again. Right now keep an eye out for those wonderful bargains available because summer is over and stores need to get rid of those items. You can score some really good deals right now!
Get Ready for Baking Sales - Fall is the best time to buy baking supplies because they are plentiful at their stock up prices. In the coming weeks products such as Flour, Sugar, and Oil will be at prices so low you will want to stock up for the entire Holiday baking season. Yes, lasting into the New Year! Start looking at your favorite holiday recipes to gauge how much you will need and determine how much to stock up on right NOW.
Utilize Meal Planning - Eating out is an easy way to spend more than you think. Even if you just write down what you eat every day...then use that to plan the same meals over the coming weeks. I like to plan using my method of cooking. One night per week is a crock pot meal, one night is chicken, one is fish etc. Then I just mix that up weekly. Thinking about what you are cooking the week before will save you a ton of money! Don't forget to make more than enough to plan and freeze extra for a bonus lunch!
Get Fun Fall Projects from Pinterest - Want a great fall activity to do with the kids? Pinterest has tons of ideas for re-using items you already have on hand to make adorable Fall decorating items for your house, and you will save money doing so!
Start Thinking about Christmas - I know it seems early. But now is good time to get a beam on your Christmas budget. Gather together any gifts you already purchased and make your list of who your still need to buy for. Then keep your eyes peeled for sales ahead of time so that when the season comes you can relax, enjoy and are not forced to spend unnecessarily! The best savings is to buy in the "off" season. And that is right now!
