I have been doing this for several years, and with many of my staples, I NEVER pay full price. I have come to know that when peanut butter is on sale, if I buy 6 jars, it will last until the next time it comes on sale.
Last week Kroger store had eggs for $1.00 a dozen. Regular price was about $1.62. I bought 6 dozen. They keep quite a long time without going bad, and by the time I need eggs again, they will be on sale again.
Frozen vegetables that are regularly $1.29 to $1.35 are another item that cycles about every couple months. They will be on sale for 10/$10.00, and I buy at least 10. Cereal is another item that this works with.
If you start studying the sale ads, you will find the list just gets longer and longer. I have not paid over $5.00 for a large can of coffee for over 4 years. Of course, I am never loyal to one brand.
