One of the best ways to save money every month is to get the best deals to stock up your pantry, refrigerator, and household – and then shop your own household for what you need all year long! Many stock up items and sales surround a theme for the season or holiday for that month. You’ll find all of the best things to stock up in September right here!

What to Stock Up on in September

1. In-Season Produce

While September isn’t the best month for most produce, there is one popular item that is at rock-bottom prices this month: apples! Don’t forget, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away!” so these make a great snack! You can keep apples in the fridge to help them last a little longer – or even make applesauce or can them. Also in-season, you’ll find good deals on squash, cantaloupe, cauliflower, eggplant, green beans, mushrooms, peppers, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes!
