Many of us have budgets we stick to every week for groceries. With fall here, and winter around the corner, now is the time to stock up. If you challenge yourself to spend maybe as little as $5.00- $10.00 extra a week, you just may grow a nice stockpile without breaking the budget.

Let me give you an example, lets say your grocery budget for the week is $75.00, by allowing yourself to go over budget by lets say$5.00-$10.00 you can collect alot of goodies and stash them away for later use.

For example this week at Meijer, there is a 10 for $10.00 sale going on with lots of variety of items to choose. That means each item is $1.00. My family loves cinnamon applesauce and it just happens to be a 10 for $10.00 item. My plan is to make a trip to Meijer this week and buy 11 jars of applesauce (you get the 11th FREE)

Now by stocking up on 11 jars of applesauce with as little as $10.00 this week you can be well on your way to a nice stash of goodies this winter.

If you put this plan into action every week until winter approaches you will have a nice stockpile of extra's to get you through winter.
