To save money on clothes and fashion, we all know that great buys can be found by shopping off-season. With food, however, the opposite is true—shop seasonally! In fact, although we have become accustomed to being able to get almost any type of food whenever we want it, there is real value to be had when you know the best time to shop for certain items.


Here’s a quick look at how you can save by planning purchases based on upcoming sales. Stock up and store these suggested non-perishables and freeze certain perishable items throughout the year.


January: avocados, chicken, condiments, ground beef, kielbasa, salsa


February: cake mixes, fish, frozen vegetables, shrimp


March/April: beef rib roasts, cabbage, corned beef, lamb, raisins, prunes, apricots


May: marinades, salad dressings, salmon steaks, spare ribs


June: N/A
