How To Save Money And Time On Holiday Gatherings, From Sandra Lee (VIDEO)

When it comes to saving time and money during the holiday season, Editor-in-Chief of Sandra Lee Magazine, Sandra Lee, had some great tips to share with me.

Sandra's grandmother was a huge coupon collector, so she learned a thing or two from her! Sandra recommends clipping from the Sunday supplement in your local newspaper. Another pointer is to pay attention to what sales are happening at your local grocery chain, as big brand versus private label products will go on sale at different times.

Finally, Sandra is a huge fan of the slow cooker. She can buy less expensive cuts of meat then braise it for 6-8 hours until it becomes a "beautiful, tender, fall-off-the-bone piece of meat!"
