This is my first time to participate in Tammy‘s Kitchen Tip Tuesday. My tip is really nothing more than common sense (and CENTS!). We all know that the holidays are just around the corner, and with that comes an increase in spending. Our family is trying to live more frugally on our one full-time and one VERY part-time income. God is so good to us; He always meets our needs, so we want to use our money wisely to honor Him. As Steady Eddie and I were perusing the ads in Sunday’s papers, we noticed several good deals at Walgreens. On Sunday night, we headed to Walgreens to take advantage of some of the great deals on primarily baking supplies and staples. If you had told me even last year that I would be buying baking soda and coconut at Walgreens of all places I would’ve never believed it. However, in the short amount of time that I’ve been following Crystal’s Money Saving Mom blog, I’ve learned to look for bargains in unlikely places. I stocked up on baking soda, semisweet chocolate chips, cream cheese, coconut, marshmallows, Andes mints, and sugar–all at a drug store! Combine this with the brown sugar, powdered sugar, and butter I bought at Aldi the day before, and we have the beginnings of some scrumptious holiday baking, and thanks to the fact that I’m planning ahead and stocking up on items that are on sale, I won’t be overspending this Christmas! How about you? Have you begun to stock up on supplies as we near the holiday season?
