I love buying produce when it’s in season and preserving it. I bake pumpkins, purée, and freeze them. I have a trick that will keep apples fresh for a couple of months. It’s also a great time to make slow cooker applesauce and apple butter.
We will see lots of sale on Apples, Pumpkins, Pears, Beets, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Oranges, Figs, Sweet Potatoes, and Winter Squash.
Because of Halloween we will see lots of candy sales. It’s a good time to stock up for all year-long. We will also see baking items go on sale. It’s a great time to stock up on flour, sugar, and spices. October is national seafood month, so we should see lots of sales on seafood. There will also be lots of sales on canned soups and stews.
Halloween decorations and costumes will be big this month. Stores start their clearance a week before Halloween so you can really save by waiting until the last minute. With cold weather starting, camping season will be ending. There should be great deals on tents and other camping gear. October is also a fantastic time to buy kitchen gear and cookware.
