Now is the time to fill your pantry with all the yummy baking treats you will use over the winter. The prices of baking supplies will be at their lowest for the year over the next few weeks.

It must be a quirk here, but it seems as though the prices are actually higher!<br><br>
Thankfully we overstocked last year - the only thing we need to stock up on is sugar.

Just saw in the Wegmans flier: 2 pounds of brown sugar or 2 pounds of confectioners sugar for 99 cents. Does that sound cheap? I'm just beginning to compare costs on stuff like this and I am baking a lot more so it sounds good to me but maybe it is cheaper at Costco. Does anyone know?

My albertsons had a good sale on flour, sugar, olive oil, spices (half off!), chocolate chips, canned pumpkin, and more. so I did buy several of each even though I had some in my pantry.<br><br>
They actually had really good deals all around (I spent $200 on over $300 worth of groceries).

Dumb question - why are they lower now? Because of the popularity of baking for the holidays? You'd think they'd keep prices the same or raise them, since most people will buy stuff to bake regardless. (Not that I agree with that tactic, but it seems that's how it works, lol) Or is there another reason for lower prices?

Well, they are hoping you will buy other regularly priced items once they lure you into the store with their sweet deals.

There are always sweet deals on organic butter at my co-op at this time of year, and on some of the rbgh-free butter at some of the bigger stores. I always buy tons and then store it in the freezer.

There are also a lot of coupons running for baking supplies, so you can really save by pairing the coupons with existing sales. I got a 2-pound pack of brown sugar on sale for $2, and another $1 off from a $.35 coupon tripled. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Well actually they <i>will</i> go up between Thanksgiving and Christmas for this very reason. If you hit the sales cycle before Thanksgiving you will get the best price point.<br><br>
I've been matching coupons and sales, I got sweetened condensed milk for .95 a can which is a great deal for where I live, it was cheaper to get name brand then generic. I also have stocked up on chocolate chips, sugar, flour, butter-all the good stuff. I bought about $300 worth of food the other day for $150.<br><br>
Also chicken stock is really cheap right now, I like to have boxed stock because I can keep the box in the fridge, I only use my homemade stock when I make soup. Also hams and turkeys. I have a really stocked house right now, it makes me happy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">. Time to make Christmas candy.
