At this time of year the summer produce starts going up in rice because they have to ship it in. Why bother apples pears, and other fruits are just as tasty and in season. Same with lettuces, cabbages, greens and root veggies. Eat em up. Stock up on em.
One of the things we have learned over the years is eat in season. Beef, turkey and pawk are all cheap right now.
Stock up on the clearance aisles and just expired aisle for freezer delicacies. Even check the backdoor shoppin opportunities as they continue to grow. Prepare now so you arent hungry later.
We have also discovered the Dollar Store for great deals on assorted stuff for the pantry, the freezer and the sweet tooth.
