If you have the pantry space and freezer space what are the things you like to stock up on when on sale?

We look for the more expensive frozen veggies that are 50% off or BOGO. Then comes meat such as boneless pork loins, top sirloin steaks, etc. For the pantry wife stocks BOGO cereals she likes and things that are canned in jars like spice peaches and pickled beets. As the old saying goes a penny saved is a penny earned. Right now I'm looking for Boston Butt Roasts to make pulled pork from. The normal 99¢ a pound summer sale has not happened in my area yet.

I look for deals on paper products, laundry stuff and bathroom soaps, shampoos..
All that always seems to be the pain the wallet at the checkout weekly..

Canned goods and Meats if they have a sale.. Sometimes we can get whole roasters for like 5 dollars..
A lot of meals with three big ass chickens if you know what you are doing..

Anything and everything.

I have a lists of everything we consume in my smart phone.

Not just food stuffs either, absolutely everything.

Recent buy- boneless smoked hams from Costco 99cents a pound. I bought 150lbs worth for us and several other people. Costco had just put them out as clearance. I wasnt even in the store to buy meat but I ALWAYS am on the lookout and ready to take advantage of a deal.

whole chickens, thighs, drums,,if you can get them for under 1.00lb, you are doing well,,
if you can buy any pork for under 1.00lb you are doing well (except the fresh arm picnic)

a store up this way,,has bone in pork chops for .99lb this weekend ... a true loss leader

i stock up on the loss leaders and the reduced/mark down meats,,,they are usually fine,,,you can get great deals on burger this way



but i will also buy a whole bnls pork loin and cut it myself,,,anywheres from 1.99-2.49lb,,,
same with a whole rib-eye or sirloin strip..

I always go for the BOGO pasta and spaghetti sauce. When all else fails, dump a jar of sauce on some pasta and you're good to go.

BOGO staples and good spices and oils.

Also cans and jars: beans, veggies, soups, salsa, sauces, beans, beans and beans.
When the power goes out you can always do something tasty with canned beans and a couple of extras.

I always keep an eye out for a good sale and stock up, be it food or household items. Sometimes if it's an item that I don't use I pick some up and donate it to the Salvation Army food bank next to the grocery store.

chicken legs, thighs and breasts mostly. Occasionally chop meat. For dry goods it's rice, pasta, canned beans, PB, bottled salad dressings. I don't stock up on a lot because it's only 2 of us.
