For years, I’ve been compiling calendars of what’s on sale/when. I’m always looking for ways to save a buck too. Here’s a few of those.
JANUARY NONFOOD SALES
It’s time for January white sales of course, so linens are on sale. Also there’s the post-Christmas season sales (find candles, party goods, etc.) and pre-inventory sales (usually begins in the middle of the month). You can find many filing/office supplies, organizers and other organization or storage items and purses on sale this month too.
JANUARY MONEY-SAVING TIPS
Below are two tips for saving money in chain restaurants, got one to add? If you go to STARBUCKS and get a “tall” coffee, think you’re saving money by getting the smallest cup they sell, right? No. You’re getting the smallest size on the menu. Order a “short” instead! At FIVE GUYS hamburgers, if you order a regular hamburger, you get 2 patties. Order a “junior” and get only one patty, for about $1 less.
JANUARY FOOD SALES
Avocado, eggs, spinach. And these are the cheapest they’ll be for a bit: chicken, lemon, and iceburg lettuce.
