If you are like me, I always think I will get what I need just before the holiday is here. BUT the past couple of years I have learned the hard way that I need to get somethings early to get them. In this case it is Christmas cereal. I know, it’s crazy, but it is our Christmas morning tradition to have a box of Christmas themed cereal. I have lived in two different states and have discovered that I usually cannot find any Christmas cereal in any of the stores after December 1st. In fact, I will usually see the cereal near the beginning of November and think I will get it next time AND guess what? It is not there “next time”. So, if you have something special that is seasonal, grab it!
Another item I find that goes on sale just before the end of November and then is at a high price during December…bags of chocolate chips! You can find a great deal towards the end of November, so make sure you stock up for all that seasonal baking.
