Why you don’t need an entire year’s worth of groceries

Use this coupon to SAVE 40¢ when you buy any 2 Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls (excludes twin pack). Be sure to buy more, too! At first, it may seem counterintuitive to be buying more than you normally would instead of less. However, getting a larger quantity on a sale price saves you more than shopping for a smaller bunch at the regular cost. Keep on repeating this strategy until you develop what would pass as a mini grocery store in your pantry. Having said that, be mindful of hoarding. Stockpiling is a lot different from that. Undoubtedly, there is no reason to get a whole year’s worth of supplies because sales easily come between 6 to 8 weeks. This means a stockpile should be good enough to last you until this cycle and you are good to go. By sticking to this technique, you will see instant breathing room in your total grocery bill. Additionally, do not just rely on processed food for stockpiling. Healthy options include beans, rice, whole grain pastas, whole grain cereals, frozen vegetables, cheese and other dairy products, and canned artichokes.
