Memorial Day Weekend Sales are Great for Food Storage

By May 27, 2010 No Comments

Memorial Day grocery sales are a great place to shop for items to put aside in food storage. Just look for the loss leaders most grocery stores are promoting, and avoid buying other things you really don’t need. Even if you don’t live in Utah, think food storage this week. Here is what I bought this morning for groceries and food storage. Some are perishable, but can freeze. Got help figuring out the deals from PinchingYourPennies.com. Notice how my list is divided by the areas in the store? This helps get you in and out quickly without overspending.
