Inside: Trying to save more money? Check out the best things to buy in April to really save. It’s an easy way to save more money without much work.
One of my favorite (and one of the easiest!) ways to save money is by stocking up on foods when the prices are at their lowest. I can buy foods for 50-60% of the regular prices. The best part about stocking up when things are on sale is that it doesn’t take a lot of my time. Just stock up to really save money on your grocery bill. I am able to get my grocery bill to around $50 a week by stocking up and saving.
Spring is here and we can see it with the fruits and vegetables. This month we will see sales on apples, artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, green beans, lima beans, oranges, pears, pineapple, and tangerines. My family loves fresh pineapple this time of year. Usually, I can find it for around $.79-$.99. When I do I really stock up. We like to make dried pineapple chips with pineapple.
April is a great month for stocking up on baking supplies. Flour, sugar, spices and more will all be on sale this month. If you have extra room in your pantry stock up on the baking supplies that you use regularly. It’s a great way to save some extra money.
There will also be plenty of good deals on ham, eggs, and other Easter items. Easter is toward the end of April this year but we should see things go on clearance that last week. If you have some extra room in your freezer you can buy an extra ham or two and freeze it while they are on clearance.
Spring always means spring cleaning and cleaning sales. I love the deals I can get on cleaning supplies this time of year. I can often get cleaning supplies for free or cheap from the drugstore. It’s a fantastic time to stock up for all year-long. If you find a deal buy a couple more than you normally would so it will last you for most of the year.
We will also see some fantastic gardening deals in April, so look for some deals on garden supplies and seeds. If you love to garden now is a good time to grab some deals. There are also good deals on lawn and garden fertilizers and weed sprays.
Earth Day is also April so we will see freebies and good deals on light bulbs, reusable bags, and reusable bottles. Stores often have giveaways with free bags and other supplies so be on the lookout for these great freebies. I like to get free bags to use for groceries at Aldi.
Saving money doesn’t always have to take a lot of time. Just by stocking up on a few extras when they are at their lowest can save you $100’s. What are your favorite things to buy in April?
