Here is an idea to help you save some money this season.
This is something I try to do every year, so I’m not spending a ton all at once.
Start buying Kosher for Passover foods from now.
I buy a little at a time each week, so I don’t have a big layout right before Pesach. And so I don’t have to worry about stocking up or having nothing left in the stores when I’m ready to shop.
How I’m able to do this: I have a weekly budget for groceries, which gives me a limit of how much to spend each week. I can choose not to buy some of the regulars (which will have to be donated or thrown out soon either way) and instead start buying the Pesach goods.
I usually buy a few items each week, depending on my budget allowance.
When Pesach comes, all that’s left are the perishables and the last minute things I thought I wouldn’t need. 🙂
Where do I store these items: I have an extra fridge/freezer in my garage for all the fridgables and freezables. Anything that is pantry-able (yes I just made that up), stays in its shopping bag in a closet or a cleared shelf until it has a rightful place in my kitchen.
