May Buying Guide

FoodYou will always get the best deals on produce when it is in season. The stores have more of it in stock, so it becomes less expensive.

May is National Strawberry Month and National Asparagus Month!  Keep an eye out for sales all month long on these two items!

Other Produce In Season:  Artichokes, Avocado, Cherries, Corn, Peas, Pineapples, Sweet Onions, and Watermelons. You can always search for sales on items here!

Cinco De Mayo is May 5th, look for specials on Mexican Foods, tortillas, salsa, and alcohol for all of your Cinco De Mayo festivities!!

Memorial Day is on May 26th. Look for sales on grilling meats, mustard, ketchup, barbecue sauces, pickles, potato chips, plastic cutlery and paper plates/cups. Check out our Red, White & Blue Recipes here!

Outdoor Items:  Sunscreen, Bug Spray, OTC Allergy Medicine.

Household:  May is still a great time to head to your local thrift store for new items to decorate your home. People are still spring-cleaning, so they are still getting a lot of great like-new items.

Clothing: While April started to offer discounts on spring clothing, look for even deeper discounts in May as the spring clothes have been in the stores a month longer and stores will soon look to clear out inventory for next season. Sign up for Shop Your Way Rewards (It’s FREE!! Sign Up Here)and get exclusive deals at Sears, Land’s End and Kmart! I can even send you coupons 🙂

Other: New refrigerator models come out in May, so last year’s models will go on sale. Mattresses also tend to go on sale in May. Just like last month, look for discounts on cookware/kitchenware as these make terrific gifts for grads and wedding presents.
