January Grocery Store Sales Cycles- What to Buy this Month

We are two days into the Near Year and among other goals, people have resolved to exercise, organize and save money. As a result, it should come as no surprise that one of the places families try to save money is when grocery shopping at grocery and drug stores.

January Grocery Sales Cycles; What to buy in the month of January to save more on  groceries

I enjoy grocery shopping, and have come to notice certain price patterns and sale cycles that I can expect every year without fail. As a result, the calendar has become my shopping guide of sorts. So every month, I will highlight what items you can expect on sale for the month. This is by no means an all inclusive guide. I will only be focusing on grocery and drug stores in America. Keep in mind that actual sales cycles in your area may vary depending on climate and general availability.

Also, since we are a community at the Domestic Life Stylist, feel free to comment and add your own observations about sales cycles and patterns that you have noticed at your own grocery stores. I will shoot for sales cycles to be published on the first of every new month.  If there is a holiday or any other schedule conflicts, expect the post to be the first post of the month…no matter what day that may fall.

January Sales Cycles

Many goals and resolutions tend to surround health and wellness in the month of January. As a result, it should come as no surprise that supplements and wellness aids are on sale this month. The height of the cold and flu season means that cold and cough medicines are on special. Not to be forgotten, family planning is high on the list of priorities in the beginning of the year.

    • So glad you enjoyed it Katie. The notes were sitting on my phone for the longest time. I thought that it was time to share.

  2. I never thought about pregnancy tests and smoking cessation aids would be on sale but it makes so much sense! Awesome article! Thank you for sharing. I look forward to following you!

  3. I love this! Thanks for the tips. I’m tempted to stock up… though bringing home pregnancy tests right now might give my husband a heart attack! I’ll be featuring this on the Lovely Ladies Linky tomorrow morning. :)
