Unlike most items, baking supplies don’t follow a typical 6-12 week sale cycle. They are really only on sale during the Thanksgiving-Christmas season and then again around Easter time.
Stocking up on essential ingredients when they are on sale is the single easiest thing you can do to save money. I know many of you plan out menus meticulously each week, and while that works most of the time, sometimes it’s nice just to throw something together too.
I’m not saying to go out and buy 100 pounds of flour, but if you do a lot of baking, you want to finish getting your pantry stocked this week. Think about how much sugar, flour, butter, baking powder and other key items you’ll need over the 4 months until the next deals are available. Seize the opportunity to stock your pantry and cross those items off your list at a fraction of their normal cost!
Here are some items you want to be stocked on. Use the ingredient search on Southern Savers to see where they are on sale this week if you are running low on any of these items!
Flour (All Purpose, Whole Wheat, Bread Flour)
Butter (unsalted – you can always add salt to taste)
Spices (replenish yearly)
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Other Pantry Necessities (Available Year Round)
Are there any other items you stock up on near the holidays?
