Memorial Day weekend nears… in the US, this holiday commemorates those who have died serving our country while in the armed forces. It is also the “unofficial” start of summer, with schools finishing up and warm weather beginning.
Memorial Day is also a great time to take advantage of grocery savings! Last year we hosted a family reunion which required us to buy large amounts of soda and beer. The prices we found at Memorial Day were the best we saw that summer. If you have a family event this summer, or a block party, this a great week to check your grocery fliers for prices.
I went through the refrigerator yesterday and checked the dates on cookout essentials, like BBQ sauce, ketchup and other condiments. I know there will be sales on these items, as well as hot dogs, beans, and chips.
My grocery ads come out tomorrow, so I am eager to see what items will be worth picking up. The next opportunity for low prices will be the 4th of July.
Often on holiday weekends we have found there are special promotions on Ebates for retailers like Target, Lands End, and WalMart. Great time to catch a good deal if a new swimsuit, wedding gift, or Father’s Day gift is on your horizon. My daughter is lobbying for a hammock!
If you see special promotions and prices this Memorial Day, please share! Do you have any holiday shopping strategies?
As I’m reading this post, I suddenly remembered that I forgot to buy mayonnaise! Maybe I’ll find it on sale?!?!
It should be on sale! I hate it, though, when they make the mayo only a good price when you buy two. It expires so fast!!!
