What this means for those who coupon clip is that you're likely to find great sales deals on the items listed above. The coupons will come out several weeks ahead of these deals and you'll need to hold onto them in order to get items dirt cheap, if not free.
For those that don't clip coupons, this is an excellent time to stock up on items with a long shelf life, such as various condiments, beans, etc as well as fill the freezer with Pork Products which are generally considerably cheaper this time of year (Bacon, Pork Chops, Ribs, etc).
