It’s all about what to stock up on in June today! 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.
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 Month, 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
This is a great month to enjoy those fresh fruits like blueberries, strawberries, boysenberries, cherries, nectarines, grapes, peaches, honeydew, and 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? It actually tastes like the real deal! If you have a Farmer’s Market near, you are so lucky!
June is National Dairy Month. It started in 1937 as National Milk Month to promote drinking milk, interesting tidbit, right? Anyway, it’s a great month to watch for deals on milk, whipping cream, cream cheese, eggs, and cheese. It’s a great month to stock up on those items you need at reduced prices.
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 donut store here in Southern Utah!
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. You can stock your freezer with those 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!
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.” Some meals you have to buy one drink (typically a soda). Here again, watch ads on Facebook, Groupon, or those mailers we get in our mailbox every week.
Father’s Day Gifts
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 for dad or grandpa. Or for mom, as in me. LOL! My point is you can get some of those tools you need before the holiday and save money. Once the big day hits, the prices go back to normal. Tools would make great wedding gifts as well for that young couple starting out.
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.
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. 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!
You may be watching for the biggest sale of the year at Victoria Secrets this month. It’s their semi-annual sale that starts in June and lasts from 3-4 weeks. Of course, other stores like Kohl’s, Nordstrom’s, and Macy’s will have great buys as well. I love wearing a bright and cheery nightgown with a housecoat, life is so good!
July 4th Holiday
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! 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 barbecues!
Iced Tea Products
I mentioned June 10th is National Iced Tea Month, 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 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
When school lets out we may see more scrapes, cuts, and minor bruising as kids start exploring outside more than usual. This is the month to stock up on BandAids, Neosporin, bandages, gauze pads, and other items you like to use. Let’s be ready for all of those issues with a first aid kit that’s stocked. 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?
Pain Relief 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 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.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post, I work hard to find the best deals for you. Life is good if we can stockpile those things we need at discounted prices. It’s all about what to stock up on in June. Here’s to saving money and prepping on a shoestring. May God bless this world. Linda
