    Question What kinds of deals are you finding to stock your pantry, freezer and HBA items?

    I was just wondering what everyone is finding "deal wise" right now to stock their pantry, freezer and also their health and beauty aids items? Am I right in thinking that the deals are not as good this year as they were this time last year?

    I was able to find some good deals on vitamins and canned beans when I combined coupons and sales. We've gotten apples either free or for .25 a pound at the orchard. I need to make some pie filling with some of them and freeze it for use later. My goal is to use about $10 a month to use for stocking up on items that we need to get us through the winter when I know heating costs and such will go up.

    How about you? What are you finding and stocking up on?

    We've been trying to purchase locally if we can and last night dh purchased pork chops at $2.00 lb. and chicken at 99 a lb. from the Hutterites. I know the price isn't as good as you probably get in the States, but we know this colony and their meat is so good.

    Debbie, I've noticed too the prices are higher and the loss leaders aren't such good deals here has well.

    I've also noticed that the price for a barrel of oil is now the highest its ever been so I would think gas prices will be going up as well.

    The only thing I am finding that is a good deal right now is canned veggies......I can get major brand name veggies for 5/$1 which is the cheapest I have seen them in a long time!

    I am still waiting for flour, sugar and butter to go on sale!!!!

    I stocked up on Campbell's chunky soups ($0.99 apiece). Great for when Mom is too sick to cook.

    The loss leaders and sales have been rather blah here as well. I did however find a 15# sack of tators for $1.99.

    I too think once the holidays roll around the sales will pick back up... and the stores will start trying to make their end-of the-year profit margins. Of course, that's where we benefit.

    The only thing that I've found worth stocking up on is "day old meat" . I have to ask my butcher for it specifically but I can get prem. ground beef for $1.29/lb. compared to $2.39. So I've been stocking the freezer with it. Otherwise the loss leaders are awful.

    I buy pasture fed ground beef from our local farm. It is sold in one pound packages. It normally sells for $3.20 lb. I caught thier sale at $2.75 lb and stocked up for the winter.

    I hit Kroger this week for PNB @.99 bought 10. My kids go through ALOT of PNB! I also am LOADED with cereal! Kelloggs/Kroger had a deal where you buy 4 bxes and automatically get 6.00 off your bill that day and it prints off a cpn for 4.00 off to use on your next shopping trip. So with cpns/special/sale they are PAYING me to take cereal home! Gotta love it!

    Ground beef has been a great price lately, less than $2 per lb. Also I have been buying milk at Giant Tiger for $3.64 for 4 litres 1% and $3.99 for 4 litres of Homogenized. (DS#1 needs the calories)

    Fresh local fruit and veggies have been good but of course that will change with the colder weather.

    Gas is about $0.85/litre here, so it takes over $40.00 to fill my tank!
