Holiday Gift Card Deals 2014 {Holiday Savings Tip}

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

The Holiday’s are a great time to purchase gift cards.  Not only do gift cards make great gifts, many stores offer bonus gift cards when you purchase.  My tip is to purchase gift cards for stores you frequent to save money.

Going out to eat?  Head up to the bar, purchase gift cards then use them to pay for your meal.  Don’t forget that you can still use coupons when you pay with a gift card!

Seasonal Fruits & Vegetables

June Seasonal Fruits & Vegetables

One of the best ways to save money on Fruits & Vegetables is to buy what’s in season.  Also, you’ll want to stock-up and freeze or can some for later use when you come across a good sale so that you can have a variety to choose from through-out the year.

One of my favorite things to do when apples are in season and cheap is to make homemade sugar-free cinnamon applesauce!  I also freeze all types of berries and pineapples for my protein smoothies.

Here’s what to look for on sale this month at your local Grocery Store and Farmers Markets:

FRUITS VEGETABLES
Apricots
Blackberries
Blueberries
Boysenberries
Cherries
Grapes
Honeydew
Nectarines
Peaches
Raspberries
Strawberries
Watermelon
Corn
Cucumber
Eggplant
Potatoes
