In March I covered the Frozen Food Jackpot at Target,
we chatted about Easter Clearance items in April,
BBQ supplies in May/June,
July brought the Ice Cream items, then came the back to school rush…
We know it’s smart to wait until a product is on sale and then stock up!
The idea is to create a stockpile that will last you 3-12 months, or until the product again reaches its lowest price. (Not that you can do that with fresh produce unless your process it!)
Convenience/Packaged Foods are seasonal just like produce! Every month we have new things to look for. Here is what is “hot” for April – keep your eyes out for the sales and have your coupons ready.
April is Easter/Passover!
It’s the last hurrah on baking items until after Labor Day, so grab last minute deals on everything from Sugar to Marshmallows. Trust me – S’mores still taste yummy when you melt a little bunny marshmallow on your stick! You will also see deals on Ham and Eggs.
***Make sure you hit that post holiday clearance! Last year I scored on stuff for the Easter Basket THIS year – things that wouldn’t perish like toys, etc (you can see it here). I also got a few Easter Decor items and school/educational supplies.
There is also Earth Day!
You will see deals on Eco friendly items like Microfiber Towels, Organic foods and things that will save Energy like CFL light bulbs, etc.
I hope this helps you know what to keep and eye out for!
