Just 10 Things That You Should Be Saving Money On

Posted on July 22, 2013 at 6:50 AM

Here are 10 Things that are already "in season" or will soon so you can find the cheapest prices of the year:

1 Hot Dogs – Between now and right after Labor Day, if you and your family like hot dogs, then this is the time to stock up. Look for coupons for Oscar Mayer but you should be able to find cheap Bar-S Hot Dogs without the coupon. I found these as low as $0.55 at a smaller independent chain here in the Houston area and then price matched at Wal-Mart.  Watch for good deals on overstocked hot dogs right after Labor Day. This is the time of year that I stock up on great hot dog prices to last me through the winter..

2 Ketchup – Look for printable Heinz coupons at coupons.com and then use them on the stand up packs of ketchup available for $1 at Kroger and $0.98 at Wal-Mart to take home ketchup for under a buck!


3 Ice Cream & Ice Cream Novelties – Cadbury/Blue Bunny, Bomb Pops, Mars Ice Cream Novelties such as Twix, Snickers & Dove Ice Cream bars all currently have coupons available. Watch for printable coupons at coupons.com for Popcicle brand. On the frozen yogurt side, you can find great tear pad coupons for Yoplait as well as others. This is a great time of year to stock your freezer up on ice cream treats. One of my favorite coupons of the season was released recently. The $1/2 Minute Maid frozen novelties goes great with 10 for $10 sales on Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade, Cherry Limeade & Orangeade (4 pk cups). My Kroger has these right now for $1 a box.


4. Cereal – Between now and the start of the Back to School season look for great discounts on cereal, especially kid friendly cereal. Kelloggs has a host of coupons out right now. These $0.70/1 coupons go great with a sale at my Kroger store where these cereals are just $1.99 each.

5 Bug Spray – Hot Shot, Glade & Black Flag all have current coupons available to protect you and your family from all sorts of bugs, ants, mosquitoes and others pests. I was recently able to get Hot Shot on a price match from a smaller regional store for just $0.99. Paired with my $1/1 Hot Shot coupon, I brought home a lot of free bug spray!

6 Avocados – There is nothing quite as satisfying as homemade guacamole. And while you may not have a coupon for avocados per se, there are some great deals to be had on these right now.

7 Candy – Lots of candy coupons have been released recently including ones for individual bags of M&Ms, Snickers, Skinny Cow candies, Starburst/Skittles & Nestle Girl Scout candy bars. Use these with some of the clearance mark downs or Buy 2 Get 1 sales at Kroger, to fill your candy closet ahead of lunch box season.


8 School & Office Supplies – As we venture closer to Back to School season, watch for coupons from 3M, Papermate and others to stock up on all sorts of school supplies and office supplies as the lowest prices of the year will begin to pop up on store shelves.


9 Water – You can never have too much water on hand especially if you live in an area that is disaster prone like the Gulf Coast. Watch for sales that bring the cost of multi packs of water down to between $2.99-$1.99.


10. Sports Drinks – Look for great deals where you buy X amount of this Sports Drink and get Y amount free.
