Finding great grocery deals post Thanksgiving Day

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

Timing is everything when it comes to finding some great deals at the grocery store during the holidays.

You really have no choice but to buy items at full price when prepping for that great Thanksgiving meal, the turkey or a ham being a key ingredient.

But what about after Thanksgiving?

When a grocery store orders too many turkeys or hams for the Thanksgiving holiday, they have to discount them to move them out and make space for incoming shipments in stocking up for the Christmas and New Year holidays.

I bought an 8+ pound ham today for 99 cents a pound at Aldi.


That's enough to feed me for more than a week and store some in the freezer for later days, or, I can keep that ham on hand for a nice Christmas dinner.  I didn't bother to look at turkey prices because 1., I'm not a big fan of turkey (I would rather eat chicken) and 2., I don't have the freezer space.

Aside from turkeys and hams, other items that you might find great deals on because stores ordered too much or a "sell by" date may be looming are eggs, dairy products, fresh veggies and selected fruits.

But remember, timing is everything.  As soon as grocery stores move these items to make room for the new product coming in, those prices are going to go back up!
