Today, it’s all about what to stock up on in June! Oh my gosh, I love sharing my bargain tips with you. There is nothing better than saving money on those things we need each month. I’m updating the post today as I do every year. Life is good when we save money on those things we need, right?

June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, so it’s a great month to stock up on those OTC medications you may often use. Be sure and look for aspirin, Tylenol, and sinus medications at reduced prices.

June 10th is National Iced Tea Day, so you’ll see a lot of sales on tea! I grew up on Sun Tea, it’s the best! So let’s get started with the best buys this month.

What To Stock Up On In June

What To Stock Up On In June

Seasonal Produce

Fruit In Season

This is a great month to enjoy those fresh fruits, like blueberries, strawberries, boysenberries, cherries, nectarines, grapes, peaches, oranges, honeydew, and watermelon. There is something about biting into a really sweet watermelon, right? Mark knows how to pick them out, every single time. He does the “knock-knock” on the melon. If it sounds hollow, it’s perfect, or at least we hope so.

Watermelon

Be ready for your favorite vegetables, like corn, potatoes, summer squash, sweet Vidalia onions, red onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Oh my gosh, eating produce in season is the best, right?

Onions

It actually tastes like the real deal! If you have a Farmer’s Market near, you are so lucky!

Dairy Products

Dairy Products

June is National Dairy Month. It started in 1937 as National Milk Month to promote drinking milk. That’s an interesting tidbit, right?

Whipping Cream

Anyway, it’s a great month to watch for deals on milk, whipping cream, cream cheese, eggs, and all varieties of cheese. It’s a great month to stock up on those items you need at reduced prices. Do you remember me telling you we can FREEZE whipping cream in the cartons? SQUEAL! I do it all the time now, I will never run out of whipping cream again! You freeze it “as is” in the cartons, how simple is that?

Donuts

Donuts

The first Friday of June is National Donut Day! Look for free donuts at some of your favorite donut outlets. You typically need to buy a drink, but hey, a free donut is awesome!

I wish we had a quality donut store here in Southern Utah! Now I need a donut, what about you? Dunford chocolate cake donuts are my favorite!

Frozen Treats

Popsicles

The first day of summer is officially June 21st, so keep your eye out for reduced prices on frozen ice cream, ice cream bars, popsicles, ice cream sandwiches, and more.

Ice Cream

You can stock your freezer with the frozen treats you love and enjoy them all summer.

Be sure and check out drugstores, Target, and Big Box stores for markdowns on all frozen treats. Your local grocery store chains will have coupons galore to buy your favorites, so watch your mailbox for those weekly ads!

Wedding Gifts

June is a great month to stock up on wedding gifts before you need to go to a wedding reception. I love using online purchases but there is something about picking out something extra special for that couple you really want to give a different type of bridal shower or wedding gift to.

Wedding Gifts at Dillards

Dinner For Dad

June is a great month to look for coupons to take dad out to dinner. Every year I find coupons that are “buy one dinner, get one dinner free.” For some meals, you have to buy one drink (typically a soda). Mark has a birthday in late June, you can count on me finding a great place to go celebrate this month.

Here again, watch ads on Facebook, Groupon, or those mailers we get in our mailbox every week.

Father’s Day Gifts

Dad’s love to mow the lawn, right? If these go on sale, buy them when they drop the price!

Lawnmowers

Father’s Day is in June each year, and if you are diligent before Father’s Day you can pick up huge discounts on tools, sporting goods, and other items for dad or grandpa. Or for mom, as in me. LOL! Watch for sales to buy the items you need or you can give them as wedding gifts!

DeWalt Tools

Some fathers love to go fishing, so the month of June is a great month to get fishing items on sale.

Fathers Day Gifts

My point is, you can get some of those dad-friendly items you need before the holiday and save money. Once the big day hits, the prices go back to normal. Things like tools would make great wedding gifts for that young couple starting out.

Barbecues

Dishes and Cookware

Dishes and Cookware

June is a big wedding month for friends and family members. You can look for deep discounts on everyday dishes, fine china, and small appliances of every kind.

Even if you don’t have any weddings this month, you may want to pick up a few wedding gifts for the coming months. It’s a great month to purchase some Christmas gifts as well.

You can put them in a closet and be ready for gift-giving throughout the year. I recommend attaching a “gift receipt” to each of the boxes.

Gym Memberships

Gym Memberships

By June, a few people have canceled their gym memberships and have already forgotten their New Year’s resolutions. Therefore, the gym companies will be offering 30-day trials for free with discounted gym memberships. Please note, I have never stepped foot in a VASA Gym. I just needed a picture for this post. I probably should have been going to a gym for years, but it’s just not me.

Be sure and try the gym first before committing to a monthly fee. Watch out for those extra fees when signing the dotted line. It’s so fun to see what to stock up on in June!

July 4th Holiday

Condiments

It’s a huge month for barbecues, so stock up on all your condiments like mayo, Miracle Whip, ketchup, mustard, pickles, and relish. Oh my gosh, I can almost smell the barbecue cooking those discounted hot dogs and hamburgers!

Hot Dogs

Life is so good when you bite into that first hot dog of the summer! We can stock up on our favorite barbecue sauce and soda for our summer get-togethers!

Iced Tea Products

Iced Tea Products

I mentioned June 10th is National Iced Tea Day, so look for great buys on tea bags, loose tea, and powdered tea drinks. Black tea is fully fermented so it lasts longer than green tea.

Store your tea in airtight containers in a cool dark shelf for 18-24 months. When in doubt, throw it in the freezer and use it as needed.

Check the expiration dates on each box or container. It’s so fun to see what to stock up on in June!

First Aid Products

Bandaids and Gauze

When school lets out we may see more scrapes, cuts, and minor bruising as kids start exploring outside after waiting months for the good weather. This is the month to stock up on BandAids, Neosporin, bandages, gauze pads, and other items you like to use when family members get hurt.

Let’s be ready for all of those issues with a first aid kit that’s stocked and ready to go. Be sure and watch your mailbox for coupons and rebates available for even more savings.

We don’t want to be caught without those items we need when we really do need them, right? In case you missed my post: 35 OTC Medications You Should Store

Pain Relief Medication

Pain Medication

This is the month to stock up on pain relief medication. It’s National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month. You will see discounts and coupons galore for those items you may use most often.

Save money and fill your first aid kit. Life is good when we’re prepared for the unexpected. You will see savings on aspirin, Tylenol, sinus medications, Motrin, and more.

    Oh Linda! You know we love you! (and your book which is ever so helpful right now!)
    I did not know that June was Migraine and Headache month! I’m already celebrating! Woohoo!
    First migraine of the month! Started yesterday! I didn’t even know I could celebrate a migraine!
    Yippee!
    Gee, my birthday month and I get to pay to renew my Driver’s License AND get a migraine!
    Naturally I am sitting here chuckling to myself.
    I’ve spent the last week or so sitting on the back deck reviewing your book yet again. I think we are pretty much on the ball – naturally with your help. We haven’t run out of anything (whew!). We are ahead on a number of things, and I am carefully checking the grocery list(s) before we go out shopping. We’ve only been going out once each week, and even then we are gloved and masks. A wonderful friend of our eldest granddaughter made masks for us and we use them regularly!
    Thank you again for all you do to take care of us and keep us safe!

      Hi Cheryl, oh my gosh, you made my day!!! I love you back from Utah! Oh, migraines are not fun! Thank you for reading my book, that was probably the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. When the publisher asked me to write a book, I told them, “I’m not a writer”, they said, we don’t care, we want you because you are an expert. I was actually honored to be asked but the task was not easy for me. But looking back, I know God wanted me to write the book, I was 65 years old! It’s actually a blessing we have had this darn COVID because it has made a lot of people wake up to be prepared. Who would have ever guessed we could not get flour, rice, yeast, or toilet paper??? God truly works in mysterious ways. Stay well, stay safe, Linda

    That was certainly an interesting tidbit regarding how National Dairy Month got it’s start, my “something learned” for the day! 🙂
    PS freezing whipping cream? I did not know this, but will now grab extras when they’re on sale. Yay!

      Hi Amy, thank you! I learned about freezing whipping cream right here in our forum of readers. I bought some on sale, froze them, thawed a pint in the frig for 2 days, it whipped up beautifully! I had no idea either! It’s the best tip ever! Linda

      Hi Carolyn, I’m not sure what book you are talking about. I was asked to write a book, “Prepare Your Family For Survival” by Linda Loosli https://amzn.to/34xHEhD

      And a fellow reader, Ray, we have purchased his book: “Bugging In: What To Do When TSHTF And You Live In Suburbia” (2nd Edition) by Raymond Dean White https://amzn.to/2R1YvWA

    You had to mention Donuts didn’t you. I made Donut’s for Casey’s General Stores for 5 years. I do miss making them but I really don’t miss being at work at 3 a.m. I use to get up at 2 to be ready and at work by 3. I like Casey’s donuts because they bake their donut’s instead of frying them. I went in to a Walmart and I thought Oh I’ll grab a few donuts ( with ours in mind) I got home and grabbed one, bit into it and it coated my mouth with grease. So I stick with what I know. I
    think I mentioned it before but if you catch yeast donuts on sale you can make GREAT bread pudding with them.
    Also with Memorial Day and the first of June so close you MIGHT still be able to get BBQ items on sale
    like Pork and Beans. Also try the Amish stores for bargains too. I had bought a jar of pickles for 50 cents. Next time I
    go if they still have them I’m going to get a case. I can’t make Dill pickles for 50 cents a jar. And also keep you eyes open for coupons for these items too

      HI June, oh my gosh, the donut holes! So Casey’s Donuts bakes them, how on earth did you get up that early to make them?? Yummy job! I love pork and beans. I would buy pickles for 50 cents, way cheaper than making them! I love bargains on items we love to eat! Linda
