Back to Fall Savings
Yeah we are in the middle of August and when I went into a Target or Wal-Mart it took me two hours to leave.
Because Of back to school shoppers.
But, in a recent article by Refinery 29, they said that Target prices aren't always the cheapest.
So, I had to find out if this was true.
I found for certain new items that you can get great deals such as Method and Seventh Generation products. Especially if they are launching a new seasonal scent.
However, the best place to purchase bulk cleaning items and paper goods is....
Yup, Home Depot has the best prices in terms of everything that you need to clean. There prices best Target, Cosco, BJ'S and Wal Mart by at least 15.00 in savings.
Another thing that I found to be true is savings on meats.
Again, I read this in Good Housekeeping, a person advocating buying all ready frozen meat, instead of fresh meat.
Again, I put this to the test with 50.00 dollars, I went to the grocery store that sells prime meats.
I bought Angus steaks, 2 packages of fresh chicken legs and 2 packages of chicken thighs, and a family pack of Italian sausage.
I went early in the morning and the butcher told me when they were putting out the prime cuts and what was on sale that was not advertised.
The butcher advised not to buy frozen packages of bulk meats because you don't know how long it was there, essential you can be eating year old meat.
With my cart of fresh meats, my shopping bill was 42 dollars.
When I got home, I cleaned the chicken with lemon juice and a vinegar, in cold water, and let it sit for 10 min. threw away the water and portion the chicken accordingly, into freezer tight containers.
Sausage boil some for Sunday breakfast and then froze those. Rook some out of the casing cooked it throughly for lasagna or mix with veggies or stuffing, froze that.
Steaks were for dinner that night salt and pepper on the grill then finish up in the oven.
So, if you look in regular places you can find great deals, you just have to ask.
Also, if you look in uncommon places such as Home Depot, you can buy all your cleaning needs for the year for the price of one trip.
Cheers to smart savings!
