Inside: Trying to save more money? Check out the best things to buy in September 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 price. When I see a great price I buy enough to last us a few months.
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.
September is one of my favorite months. My kiddo was born in September, so of course, I love it because of that. But September is a great month for stocking up on foods too!
The weather is mild in September and we still have plenty of fresh fruits and veggies we can stock up on. There are also some great Labor Day sales we will see in September.

Seasonal Produce To Buy In September
My favorite produce to stock up on in September is apples. Apples go on sale in September and in the midwest they are around $.69-$.79 a pound.
There will also be some great sales on acorn squash, butternut squash, cantaloupe, cauliflower, eggplants, green beans, mushrooms, peppers, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes.
It’s a great time to stock up on fruits and veggies before the prices get higher in winter. You can easily can vegetables like green beans, mushrooms, and peppers.
Vegetables like the acorn and butternut squash can be stored for a while so you can really stock up if you see a good deal.

September has most kids back in school and stores have some fantastic lunch deals this month. There will be sales on things to pack in kids lunch and some easy breakfast foods too.
These easy lunch foods tend to have a long shelf life so buy for the next 6-9 months. You can stock up on peanut butter, Jelly, and frozen breakfast foods. I usually will buy 10-15 jars of peanut butter when I can get them on sale for my homemade uncrustables.
Also, with Labor Day in early September, we will see grilling foods on sale. You can stock up on hot dogs, hamburgers, buns, and chips.
