3 Reasons To Shop the Stock Up Sale

Tracking Pixel3 Reasons To Shop the Stock Up Sale

#1 Save Money

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Safeway.

Saving money at the grocery store is part of running my house. How I save money is stalking sales, no I’m not the coupon clipper that comes into the store with 100 coupons, NO!  What I do is design my menus around my local grocery stores sales for the week.  I have the Safeway App on my phone, so I can see what the weekly deals are and when there are stock up sales I jump on those, even if I’m not going to use it that week.  I use my Safeway App to help me find the deals (even tells me what aisle).  Most of my sale items will be used for dinner meals. I save money every time I shop at Safeway.3 Reasons To Shop the Stock Up Sale-#1 Save Money

You might not think STOCKING UP is saving me money, but it is!  Now it might not be this week, but down the road, I will need that item, and guess what I have it.  I save money by shopping the Safeway Stock Up Sale by buying items in bulk, buy in season, and of course what is on sale that I can use later. I’m thinking ahead like what I need to cook for the holidays.

#2 Being Prepared

3 Reasons To Shop the Stock Up Sale-#2 Being Prepared

Having food on hand is always a blessing, and I never take that for granted.  But what if something happens like a bad storm and I just don’t want to go out to the store. Being prepared for emergencies is part of my job in this family, and I don’t mess around.

When I see a STOCK UP SALE, I stock up.  Winter is coming up, and I’m not going to want to be in the weather so getting ready now. My nickname at home is Mama Bear, now I know why! Stocking up on food I use weekly is a no-brainer, and if it is on sale I will stock up! Having a little extra during the holiday is also a must, I like to stock up on items I know I can bring to the food bank for others to enjoy a meal or two!

#3 Flexibility Of Menu3 Reasons To Shop the Stock Up Sale-#3 Flexibility Of Menu

Yes, I do plan my meals in a week ahead but what happens if on Friday I don’t feel like making the casserole and just want to fry up some chicken and rice.  I can do that because I have food that I’ve stocked up on so I can be flexible and change up the menu.

My moods do change, and I usually do change up a meal here and there.  Knowing I have the means to change my mind, is helpful indeed, no need to stress on what I’m cooking a night I get home too late.  I know I have something that will take less than 30 minutes, somewhere in my kitchen.  

Crackers like Ritz are my favorite thing to buy during the stock up sale...and I'm not the only one! Crackers like Ritz are my favorite thing to buy during the stock up sale…and I’m not the only one!

This post makes me so hungry! I love shopping and stocking up on food that i tend to forget about them at times. I always go for fresh food but I do indulge in snacks at times Haha

I agree. Winter is coming so that we need to stock up our pantry. I love fresh foods than processed food. But I'd really like cereals and oats.
