Grocery stores price items around holidays, customer shopping patterns & seasonal produce. Did you know which entrance you choose to enter a store would play a factor in how much you spend? Studies have shown that customers who enter a store through the right-hand entrance & shop counterclockwise will spend more than those who do the opposite. Next time, try shopping clockwise & you will probably save some money!
Easter has come & gone. As you have probably noticed, all that candy & those plastic Easter eggs are on the clearance racks. This is a great time to stock up on non-perishable items for next year. See Ashley Bunker's recent blog post and candy stash from CVS at: http://thesavingsmomma.com/major-score-at-cvs-ka-pow/
Earth Day was April 22nd & most stores will have organic foods, reusable bags & energy efficient items on sale. Like years past, Target will be giving away free reusable bags to all customers on Earth Day. Since most grocery items are priced lower at Target than traditional grocery stores, you may want to check them out on the 22nd & grab a free bag while supplies last!
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner & all traditional Mexican food items will be priced to move. Make sure to stock up on chips, salsa & refried beans. Beer & tequila will also be discounted, so if you’re looking to celebrate after the kids go to bed, stock up!
Our official kick-off to summer will be here before we know it. Memorial Day is known as one of the two holidays great for deals on everything you need to BBQ (Labor Day is the other holiday). So towards the end of May, look for deals

Don’t forget to buy what’s in season. Not only will it save you money, it will also be fresher! Here is a quick list of produce that is in season in April & May:
