We know it’s smart to buy the seasonal items at our local stores like when the fruit is in season, and that means it is at it’s lowest annual cost. A savvy shopper waits until a product is on sale and then stocks 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 July – keep your eyes out for the sales and have your coupons ready!
I will also be sharing with you different recipes to MAKE your own and give away an Ice Cream Maker!
We will also see more of the BBQ items (sauce, marinades, condiments, chips, etc).
I don’t know about you – but I still need pickles and pickle relish!
July is also the beginning of the back to school sales —
but I have a whole post on that coming!
There is a lot of great Seasonal Produce:
Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Garlic, Grapes, Green Beans, Nectarines, Red Onions, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Potatoes, Red Onions, Summer Squash, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Watermelon
***It’s a great time to can beans, make pickles and make your tomato purees! I already told you I’d share the Famed 4P jam recipe with you too!
