Ever wonder what items are good to buy different months of the year? Survivalist blog tells you what to buy for each month of the year. I’ve copied May & June for your convenience:
- Memorial Day Sales
- National Barbeque Month
- National Hamburger Month
- National Salsa Month
- National Strawberry Month
- National Salad Month
This is a great month to stock up on condiments. You will find mayonnaise, catsup, mustard, barbeque sauce, steak sauce, and other such products on sale BOGO. Newspaper inserts start running coupons for these products in April. Hold on to your coupons, and use them for the BOGO sale. (Most stores will let you use two coupons when buying BOGO items.)
If you miss a sale, don’t worry. Such items will go on sale again during the next two months. But do note that the sales on barbeque and picnic items are typically better in May than in June or July.
If you purchase pre-made hamburger patties, May is the month to stock up on them. You can usually find sales up to 40 percent off.
May is the best time to make strawberry this and that. Next year, I want to put up some strawberry jam.
Keep an eye out for picnic items such as paper plates and plastic utensils. Around the summer holidays, you can usually pick these up for half price.
- National Dairy Month
- National Iced Tea Month
- National Seafood Month
- Adopt-a-Cat Month
We are now half way through the year, and the stores of butter you put in your freezer from last Thanksgiving are running low. Count of some excellent sales on butter and other dairy products. Buy enough to last until November.
