I love November for all the obvious reasons: You can stock up on your favorite fall staples while saving money! Really though, you can stock up on things like 30-pound turkeys and dessert must-haves like Cool Whip cheaper than any other time of year. Unfortunately, supplies may be low and stores may have limits in place for some of your stock-up items. Remember, ’tis the season to be extra nice, so when in doubt, leave some for the next guy.

Check it out:


1. Get a free Thanksgiving turkey in November at Kroger.

Because of Thanksgiving, November is the month to stock up on turkey. From Nov. 18 to Nov. 26, 2020, Kroger offered a frozen turkey up to 31.9 pounds for free when you spent $125 in one transaction.

If you didn’t want to spend that much, you would pay $0.29 a pound, provided you used your Kroger card.

Since Kroger limits shoppers to one free turkey per transaction (so, you could technically go back and spend another $125 on groceries to get another free turkey), I say get one turkey for Thanksgiving and then go back and get the biggest bird that can fit in your freezer for the holidays.

TIP: If you’ve got Albertsons nearby instead of Kroger, they gave away one turkey up to 20 pounds free when you spent $100 or more in a single transaction. If you spent between $50 and $100, you paid $0.45 a pound.

2. Buy French’s fried onions for $3 a can.

Fried onions are the best part of green bean casserole, and Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without it.

In 2020, you could save $0.50 a can when you bought French’s Crispy Fried Onions for $2.99 at Kroger and Vons. Both sales were part of “Buy more, Save more” promos.

3. Stock up on FREE Swanson canned broth and canned soup for the cold months.


Swanson broth can come in handy any time of year, but November is a great time to stock up. In 2020, I found this deal at Walgreens for free chicken broth:

Buy 2 Swanson Chicken Broth, 14.5 oz (reg. $1.29) $0.50 each, when you buy 2, sale price through Nov. 28
Use two $0.50/1 Swanson Stocks or Broth from SS Nov. 8
Final Price: Free, when you buy 2

Prefer your broth in a box? In 2020, I found the 32-ounce boxes of Swanson broth (reg. $3.59) on sale for $1.49 at Albertsons.

Look for condensed soups to also go on sale during November. Albertsons had 10.5-ounce cans of condensed Cream of Chicken and Cream of Mushroom soup on sale for $0.49 a can in 2020. That’s cheap, but you could only buy six cans. Target had both flavors on sale for $0.69 a can with no limit.

4. Buy Kraft Jet-Puffed marshmallows for under $1.


It’s time for Rice Krispies Treats and candied yams when Kraft Jet-Puffed marshmallows are on sale for less than a buck, making it the perfect time to grab several bags. In 2020, Vons beat out Meijer for the lowest prices on marshmallows at $0.99 for a 10-ounce bag when you bought five bags. Meijer’s price was $1.19.

5. Serve up some FREE Cool Whip.


The holidays mean pie, and pie needs whipped cream. You can get amazing deals on whipped cream in November. In 2020, I found a Walmart deal for free Cool Whip:

While most grocery stores have Ritz crackers on sale during November, in 2020, Vons had the 8.8 to 13.7-ounce boxes of snack crackers 3 for $5, or $1.67 a box, compared to $1.99 at Kroger and Meijer.

Cheese ball, anyone? I mean seriously, what’s the holidays without a cheese ball? In 2020, I found most grocery stores, including Kroger, Meijer, and Winn-Dixie, sold Philadelphia Cream Cheese for the same price: 3 for $5.

TIP: Leave your cream cheese in its original packaging and freeze it for up to two months.

9. Stack coupons to stock up on skin moisturizer.

No better time to stock up on moisturizer for the upcoming cooler, drier months. In 2020, many of the major brands were super cheap thanks to coupons and rebate apps. If you aren’t brand loyal, you can stock up on lotion for about the regular price of one bottle. Here’s a deal I found last year that totaled $0.46, a savings of $5.38:

Buy 1 Vaseline Almond Smooth Lotion, 20.3 oz $5.84, regular price
Use one $1.50 – on any ONE (1) Vaseline Lotion (10 oz and larger) (Excludes bonus packs, trial & travel sizes) (coupons.com)
And submit one $1.00/1 – Vaseline Hand & Body Lotion, Ibotta Rebate (ibotta.com)

Final Price: $0.46
