It is hard to believe it is already August! There are so many delicious fruits and vegetables in season right now.

We like to can all the delicious produce from peaches, green beans, and tomatoes! I love being able to stock up on good deals and preserve items from our garden. It really helps our grocery budget when the items are no longer in season.

If you are looking for a source that constantly updates, check out the National Fruit & Vegetable Retail Report issued by the government every couple of weeks. This report gives the top 10 fruits and vegetables and the national percentage of which fruits and vegetables are in store ads.

      Don’t forget to stock up on all the great school supplies for your Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. I am currently working on 10 boxes but hope to do 14. My daughter and I did 13 boxes last year. We start every year in January when all the Christmas stocking stuff goes on 75% off clearance. I found great deals last January on hairbruches, combs, hair accessories, Christmas coloring books, story books, pencils and small purses.
