I went to make lemonade the last week of the year only to discover that I was out of sugar.
In general, I don’t run out of things–especially sugar! Staple items are things I always have on hand.
I’ll be remedying that problem right away. I have 7 or 8 baskets of lemons on the counter and lots of calls for lemonade!
This is also a good month to watch for sales on vitamins and cold and flu medicines. I’ll be looking for sales and coupons to combine to stock my medicine cabinet.
Ghiradelli chocoalte melts (if these are on clearance–they usually are in January, as they are a seasonal item for the holidays)
Ketchup ($3.68 for 114 ounces)
Vitamins (mutli-vitamins and invidual vitamins. I buy the store brand mens’, womens’, and children’s from Target. There should be sales and possibly coupons and a Target cartwheel to stack.)
Children’s Pain reliever/fever reducer (store brand plus sales/coupons)
Tomato Sauce in a #10 can
Crumbled feta cheese
La Victoria Salsa
Canned water chestnuts
Almond flour (for a specific recipe that I want to try this week)
Frozen petite peas. I have a raincheck from last month that I can use to get these for $1 a pound.
Hand-dishwashing soap (store brand)
I’ll watch for sales on:
Broccoli (in season this month)
