So want to know how sales cycles work? it's super easy, once a year a product will be at it's rock bottom price, that also means Manufacturers will send out coupons for this product, you should also find a bunch of these type of coupons on line, It's a savings haven! so we will take frozen pizza (since they were on sale just a couple weeks ago) this is the time to stock up on frozen food. Digorno pizza was on sale for a rock bottom price at 2/9 I had a buy 2 get one free coupon so I got 3 Digorno Pizza's for 9 or for $3 a piece. If you could see my freezer I almost need anther one since it's almost full of frozen food items that my family will use this coming year. That is how you can use sale cycles to your benefit stock up once a year on the items that are on sale at it's rock bottom price so you don't pay double 6 months from now for the same item.
Another worthy note: Hy-Vee has thier anual buy a Ham get a turkey free sale this month, I like to Roast and Smoke the turkey and freeze it for dinner later when I don't have time to cook, I also freeze the ham, and use them as ham stakes and cube the ham for stews and breakfast. I usally get 4 turkeys and hams, and will last us till about April.
