Summer is here and that means BBQ's, picnics, and outdoor fun! This is also the perfect time to stock up on all the foods that go along with those cook-outs. Watch the grocery ads for ketchup, mustard, salad dressing, bbq sauce, relish, mayo, and spices. These types of foods add flavor to your cooking. Basic food storage will only be tolerated for so long by a hungry family. Don't forget to stock up on the condiments and spices that add flavor to your food storage! Paper products like plates, bowls, napkins, cups, plastic utensils, and paper towels are also on sale. Who wants to do dishes in an emergency?! Your challenge is to stock up now while the prices are LOW!
And don't forget about all the camping deals out there. Take advantage of the great prices on tents, camp stoves, sleeping bags, and all the gear that goes along with camping. Restock your 72-hour kits and car kits with camping tools, gloves, collapsible shovels, tarps, etc. Father's Day and Fourth of July sales are the best time to purchase larger items for a great price. Sometimes you can find great deals at the end of the summer season, but if you really need a tent and find a great price, buy it!
