Strips? Are you talking about precut foam or R-board...or the precut batts of fiberglass?
The foam & R-board have both gone up considerably as of late, & aren't likely to go down for the foreseeable future. If you have a Menards in your area, they usually run big sales on base construction materials (i.e. lumber, plywood & OSB, insulation, roofing, etc.) in early spring- mid-March, I think.
Fiberglass insulation is on sale at a couple of places right now, and I know Menards has a current rebate on it.
