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.
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.

Loved this entry! Thank you for sharing your insight! Happy New 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.
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!

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. 🙂
Thanks Emily. No, don’t stock up on the tests…that would definitely scare him. 😉
