Quick tip: Watch the flyers

Heather says:

Now is the time to start watching the flyers for good sales on items you may need for fall baking.  This week butter is on sale at my local grocer; I’ll be loading up my freezer.  With the corn crop suffering and being diverted to ethanol production, the price of dairy products may spike.  Laying in a good supply now will help protect my wallet.

    Helpful explanation. Thanks!

    Margo,

    A lot of the corn that was raised for cattle is now being diverted to use in ethanol. The demand for corn is currently outstripping production causing the price to rise on the consumer end for: diary, beef, and some corn products like tortillas.

    I don’t get it: what’s the connection between corn and dairy prices? But I love a reminder for stocking up – thanks.

    good to know. I will have to look for some deals myself and see if the stores around here are having sales too.
