August is a time to stock up not only on obvious things like school supplies, but also to take advantage of the fruits and vegetables that are in season. Summer produce is still in full swing, so make sure you check this list of what to buy in August before you head to the store!
A quick note: For large ticket items (other than computers) you really want to wait until Labor Day. August doesn’t have any three-day weekends and really isn’t a great month for big purchases. Labor Day is also when we start to see the best clearance deals on all things summer!
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.
