Suggested Food Storage Items to Buy in June 2010

June is the beginning of the summer and most stores will have plenty of items on sale. Budgets are tight, so take advantage of some great deals. Loss leaders are sale items that stores promote in their ads to draw you into their stores to buy more items you may not find on sale. My list below is a heads up so you will watch for items that go on sale. I’ve highlighted some in green that are typically discounted in June to help you save the most money:

Shelf Stable Foods
Bottled water (look for $2.99 or less for 24 ct. case), powdered milk (LDS), dry beans (LDS), dry split peas & lentils, freeze dried vegetables, butter powder, dried fruits & raisins, salad dressing, croutons, lemonade mix, pancake mix, tapioca

roasts, strawberries, sausage

contact solution, mouthwash

Paper & Cleaning
laundry stain remover, dish soap

Medical Supplies
vaseline, measuring spoon, assorted band aids

Family Emergency Kit Supplies Part 2
(items you share as a family in a grab and go container)
crescent wrench, duct tape, large flashlight, spare flashlight batteries, hand can opener, mess kits, disposable hand wipes, sunblock, insect repellant

Equipment & Fuel
lumber for food storage shelves, firewood, or cooler

Other items that go on sale in June: Summer clothing (back to school clothes will start filling shelves. So take advantage of summer clearances. My favorite time to shop!), dresses, summer sports gear, men’s clothing (Father’s day is a great time to shop for Christmas gifts too!), refrigerators, TV’s, computers, electronics, fabrics, building materials, pianos, canning supplies
