We might not all associate Mother’s Day with great sales on food items, but any holiday drives sales at the grocery store. Even if you aren’t celebrating with your Mother, take advantage of Mothers Day Sales to stock up. And if you are, give her a big hug (and make her brunch.)
Cinco de Mayo is a primarily Mexican holiday, celebrated, too, in the United States. It’s another of my favorite food Holidays, and I feel a bit remiss about not posting much about it until now. Start looking for sales in the weeks before Cinco de Mayo and through out what ever week Cinco de Mayo falls. For the uninitiated, Cinco de Mayo translates as 5th of May. (May 5th is also National Enchilada Day.)
Memorial Day – it’s really the start of the summer seasonal sales, and you’ll see many of the same items during the other big summer Holidays, Father’s Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day. Then summer’s over, so stock up on the pantry items, pick up your meats and proteins and freeze so you’ll be eating sales priced food through the summer and beyond. Buy condiments, too, at the best prices of the year.
We all know food is seasonal, but what about office supplies? Absolutely. Clothing? You betcha. Body Wash? You got it! Cameras, computers, bedding? Musical instruments? Batteries? Some of the lowest prices of the year on many items can be found during the back to school sales.
