Grocery Sales for Autumn Menu Planning

Thursday is Thanksgiving Day in the USA. That means lots of great sales at the grocery store.

Do you have a general idea of menus? Not only for the big Turkey Day, but for the next few weeks. Even if you don't live in the USA, take a look at your grocery store circular. Now is the time to stock up on:

-winter squashes (pumpkin, acorn, butternut, etc.) - store in cool place
-sweet potatoes (at Wal-Mart - .38 CENTS a pound!) - store in cool place
-baking potatoes (at Wal-Mart - 10 pound bag for $4.00) - store in cool place
-cranberries (buy several and freeze or dehydrate)
-turkey (buy several and freeze)
-ham (buy several and freeze)
-instant mashed potatoes - good for a long time
-pie fillings, canned veggies, canned fruits, canned soups, flour, sugar, salt, etc etc etc

Take a look at the circular and plan a few meals a week around them. Note prices and quantities. When does the "sale" end? Make your shopping list, and get going!
