What to Buy in April to Save Money
Food Stuff to Buy in April
In April, you can save money on your grocery bill by buying seasonal produce such as artichokes, asparagus, cabbage, fava beans, and rhubarb, among others. Additionally, take advantage of post-Easter candy and decoration sales at drugstores and big-box retailers.
It's almost always cheaper to by produce in season, but this varies a little depending on your area. We can't grow anything outside during the cold winter months, so I like to use a couple of seasonal produce guides saved to help plan my meals.
These are some of the fruits and veggies that are considered in season across the country. Take advantage of lower prices to enjoy some of your favorites.
- Avocados (ending)
- Fava Beans
- Spring onions
