I picked up some great information from Home Storage Skills blog. It's a chart showing the best months to purchase both food and non-food items. Here is the list for this month. I have also posted the entire year on the Yearly Sales page. I was in a discount store yesterday to get some curling ribbon and they already had Valentine items out!
Baking supplies (flour, sugar, yeast chocolate chips, baker’s chocolate, sweetened condensed
milk, cooking oil)
Refrigerated cookie dough
Dried fruits (raisins, apricots, cranberries)
Disposable baking pans
Carpeting and flooring
