Each month there are certain deals and savings you can get that will help stretch your dollars even more! For an example, buying hotdogs during the next month or so will give you the best deal!
This is my guide to what to buy, what’s on clearance, and what’s in season in the month of June. Its helps you to understand the monthly grocery June sale cycle as well as other promotional cycles. Planning ahead is the best way to save.

- Remember to schedule your little ones for free events like the Lowes Build and Grow or Home Depot
- Harvest buttons and shoe laces off of shirts and shoes that are unusable and can’t be donated (save for another use, pair of shoes etc)
Close blinds and curtains to keep sun out on hot days to reduce cooling costs
- Consider going to yard sales to pick up camping supplies & summer clothes
- If possible dry clothes on a clothes line outside during summer months
- Challenge your family to a weekend of “no spending”
- Start summer meal planning. Plan light meals that are frequently cooked outside (so as not to heat up your house while cooking)
- Discuss what is working in your frugal plan & what needs improvements. Make adjustments as needed for your family
- Aquarium Month (check for ticket deals at your local Aquarium)
- Candy Month
- Dairy Month (this is a GREAT time to buy extra on sale and freeze)
- National Adopt a Cat Month
- National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month (most fruit & veggies are on sale because they’re in season)
