What to buy in January

Prior to couponing I had a vague idea of when things went on sale. Burgers were cheap in summer, soda around Super Bowl and school supplies in the fall.

Oh the naivete...

What's cheapest this Month:
Historically, Quaker has hot deals on cereal/all items. We see Pepsi/Tostitos go on sale mid-January (again, rebates abound for these). Other items of note this time of year are chili, side dishes, anything for hearty/warm meals.
