Here's a money saving tip for you especially since it's the end of the year and many of us are bringing cookies and cupcakes to school right now, be sure to shop later in the day for clearance items! This is especially true at Walmart but I have seen it at other grocery stores too. Shop later in the day and you'll notice the bakery unloading those day old items. You can score bread, cupcakes, cakes, cookies and more for 40% off!

The next time you're at Walmart or your local grocery store, be sure to ask when the clearance shelves get stocked. Then, you can stalk 'em for some great deals! :)
