The Best Time to Buy Everything at its Lowest Price

I used to think that saving money by seasonal shopping was grocery shopping at farmer’s markets in the summer, buying pumpkins in the fall, and not something I could not do the six months out of the year where nothing grows locally during the winter.   It wasn’t until I wrote a monthly What Goes On Sale and What to Buy on Clearance series that I realized I couldn’t have been more wrong.   I learned that almost everything from food to household goods to cars has a time of the year where it goes on sale because: There is a seasonal abundance (like fresh produce) The store has some of  last season's stock left in storage and wants to make room for the current season There is on end of season clearance to make room for next season’s goods on the store shelves There is a sale due to a celebrating an industry month (such as National Craft Month, National Camping Month, national holidays,etc.) There is a mega

Cut flowers too.

I found the prices to be reasonable, if not a bargain, on most items.




Have you shopped your local farm market today?
