Grocery Store Seasons: Know When to Stock Up on What

Save money on seasonal sales at the grocery store

Grocery stores put sales on items in certain seasons. Stock up when they are on sale and you can save a bundle.

Frozen Food - March is frozen food month. Always great sales.

Dairy - June is national dairy month, which is not quite as big a deal as frozen food month.

BBQ Products (ketchup, mustard, relish, salad dressings, napkins, etc.): Early in the summer. These companies want to fill your pantry so you don't buy competitors' products all summer. Good time to stock up a year's worth.

Beverages (soda, beer, juice drinks, apple juice): All summer, especially around holidays such as Memorial Day, Labor Day and July 4th. Also usually good prices on large items (like two-liter soda) during holiday sales in other months.

Baking needs (flour, sugar, corn/vegetable oil, aluminum foil, etc): Thanksgiving and December holidays. This is also a good time to stock up on holiday-related items you like to eat all year, such as cranberries and canned yams.

Italian products (ricotta, mozzarella, crushed tomatoes, olive oil): Christmas, Easter and Columbus Day. Holiday stockup goes for all ethnic products, such as Chinese products at Chinese New Year, Jewish products during Rosh Hashanah and Passover, etc.
