It’s October which means it is officially fall! With October comes some of my favorite things: homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Bread, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Pancakes… are you starting to see a theme here? Thankfully pumpkin will be on sale this month! In addition to pumpkin, here is what you should buy this month based on October grocery store trends.
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.
One big note: October is NOT the month to buy any electronic equipment. All of these will go lower in November and December and you will regret the price you pay this month.
What should you look at buying and stocking up on this month??
Clearance Grills & Patio Furniture
Clearance Summer Toys, Swim etc.
Vacations (buy ahead for next year)
