One of the best ways to make the most of your budget is to follow trends at the grocery store as well as at other stores in terms of what’s on sale. February is not the time of year to fill your deep freezer with ice cream or to stock the pantry with baking supplies. Certain things are in season in February, and if you focus on buying those fruits and vegetables as well as waiting until then to buy other big ticket items (like mattresses), you’ll find the best deals! Read on to find out what to buy in February to get the best bang for your buck.
