Check Out the Sales Cycle for June!

Summer is here, and one of my favorite things about this time of the year, is that fresh fruits and vegetables will be on sale. There are a few companies that put out coupons to help offset the cost. Driscoll’s have coupons for berries, Dole puts out coupons for pineapple’s, bananas and bagged salad mixes and Halo has coupons year round for their fruit. Publix and Winn-Dixie both will have store coupons for fresh produce as well. June is also National Dairy Month. I can’t believe how expensive dairy products are, but this month we can save money on all things dairy. Coupons do come out for milk, eggs, cheese and ice cream. With school being out for the summer, a lot of households will use more dairy products now.

Here is the sale cycle for June to help offset some of your expenses. Be on the lookout for sale prices and don’t forget to use coupons.

June Sale Cycle:
National Dairy Month:
Milk, Eggs, Ice Cream, Cheese, Cream Cheese, Butter, Yogurt, Whipping Cream, Whipped Cream, Cool Whip

Mother’s Day Tips!

We are officially into the month of May, so I have to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mommies this week! Dads and kiddos, I got you covered for Mothers Day. I’m going to give you all of my money saving tips, to help you make this Mother’s Day special!

Walgreen’s should be at the top of your list for Mother’s Day this year. This week they have live plants on sale starting at $4.99, balloons, cards, photo frames and candy! Make a photo card and save 30% by using this code at checkout: MOTHERSDAY then purchase a photo frame for under three bucks! The best part of all is that Register Rewards and Balance Rewards Points can be used to pay for any of these items, leaving you with extra cash to take mom out for a nice brunch or dinner on Mother’s Day!

Perhaps brunch and/or dinner is on the menu, check retailmenot and groupon for coupon codes and other Mother’s Day specials at your favorite restaurants, and always ask if they offer a military discount!

This Mother’s Day if mom wants to just spend time with the family, then head to SweetBay’s Grand Opening Party! True Soul, who has carried the title of The Best band in Bay County for the past two years, will be playing from 12-5. There will also be story tellers, crafts for kids, food, special gifts for mom, and other giveaways and prizes. The best news of all, there is no cost to attend! That’s a pretty awesome way to celebrate Mother’s Day!

I will be teaching a coupon class, at the Tyndall Air Force Base Airmen & Family Readiness Center, on Wednesday May 25, 2016 from 11:30AM – 1:00PM. No cost to attend but you do have to call the AFRC (850-283-4204) to reserve your seat.
