December is a great month for saving money on groceries! In December, people bake lots of treats and have lots of parties. Since businesses know this, they have sales to drive us into their stores on items that don’t go on sale all the time. I know that I love to bake this time of year!! My kids and I have the best time making cookies and treats to give to others. It is so much fun to make all of these yummy treats, and give them away to others. It gives us a great excuse to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. We are definitely making out peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and our peanut butter hot cocoa cookies. Can you tell I like chocolate and peanut butter? We also make short bread cookies and gingerbread cookies each year. I think that I am going to venture into trying to make candy and homemade marshmallows as well this year!
What are you guys planning on making this year?
Here are items that you can look for sales on this month:
Batteries - for all of those Christmas toys
- cream cheese
- hot chocolate mixes
- chocolate chips – Although, make sure that these are really a good deal. If you have a dollar store or Aldi, you can often find these cheaper there if you are willing to use an off brand.
- baking soda/powder
- cookie mixes and dough
- muffin mixes
- cake mixes
Also, you can usually find the best prices of the year in November and December on small kitchen appliances.
I hope that you guys can find some great deals, and have some fun getting into the kitchen and making some Christmas treats! If you have a recipe that you would like to share, feel free to in the comments. I am always looking for great new holiday treat recipes!
