What to buy in October

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:
Stock up on holiday foods – Stove Top, turkey, instant mashed potatoes, broth, cranberries, marshmallow, ice cream, pie shells, whipped cream, pudding. Look for great Kraft deals again this time of year. Piggyback those Kraft coupons when you can. Crackers are a biggie - going on for $1 or less a box. Lots of extra deals like $ off cheese WYB crackers. The real kicker is the after Christmas food deals! Save your coupons because pie fixings, fried onion, broth and canned green beans will be on deep discount.
