If you are looking to save money on your fruits and Veggie purchases then your going to want to read this post. I have found a way to make the most of your budget for your fruit and veggie needs. I use this method for all my canning and freezing needs as I love to have fresh fruits and veggies available for our family all year round. It’s very important that you check out your area fruit and veggie market to see how they run their market so you will know if this will work in your area.
We have a Flea Market & Fruit and Veggie Market that is available to us every weekend. It is open on Saturday and Sunday all year round. The Fruit and Veggie Market is only open in the summer of course so I take full advantage of it every weekend. Our Market has normal pricing all the way till Sunday. However, on Sunday an hour before closing the pricing changes! That is when I go there to stock up on what I need for Canning and freezing. An hour before closing they start to lower the prices so that they can sell out on everything that they have. I will go there with $20 and a game plan to fill my van with cases of fresh fruits and veggies. They offer a great selection of fruits and veggies.
Now an hour before they are closing the prices drop from so much a pound to $1-$3 for a Case of Fruits and Veggies. I will get the cases that I want of Sweet Corn, Green Beans, Cantaloupe, Tomatoes, Green Peppers and so many other fruits or veggies that I would like for the week. I fill up my van for about $10-$20 and there is no room left in the seats or floor of my van besides the front seats and sometimes it’s just my seat that isn’t filled with cases. I then take them all home prepare the fruits and veggies and spend a day or two canning and freezing them. I do this for most of the summer and we then have all of our fruits and veggies for the winter. This year I will be posting pictures of the cases that I pick up and all the products that I make from them so stay tuned. I will also be posting a video of our Fruit and Veggie Market so that you can see what it is like and how I get the deals.

Have been wondering how to save on your meat costs for your family? Meats are one of the most expensive staples in our diets. So we are always looking for ways to save money on them. I have found a couple of ways to save on meats that have worked for our family.
The first being visiting your local State or County Fair. They set the prices for the meat costs for the year. So knowing what the price is going for on the market is going to help you to make a good deal on your purchase. You can then call your local 4H club and request information on all the animals that were not sold at the fair. All the animals must be sold so they need to be purchased. You will get a good deal on the animals that haven’t been sold. You could get them for $1-$2 lb after being processed. They will send them to the butcher that they use for processing, and then you can pick it up. It can be a great way to save a large amount on your meat. You can also see if someone in your family wants to split half of the meat to cut the costs even more for you if you do not want a whole Cow or pig. These animals need to be sold to purchase another animal for the next year’s fair.
This is one of the best ways to save on your meat costs. There are of course always your sales at the grocery stores and using coupons. You can also check with local farmers to see if they have animals up for sale as well. If you have a several acres, you could also raise your own animals that will be used to feed the family as well. These are a Couple the best ways to save money.

There is soon to be a Holiday Feast going on in everyone’s home’s. Fruits and Veggies are always a big part of the dishes that are served. No matter if it’s in pies, veggie trays, and other choices. However, there are some deals at the Grocery stores but they are still an expensive part of the meal.
So remember there is an alternative to getting them at the Grocery stores. Go to your local Fruit and veggie markets. If you have a flea market that is open just on the weekends then go on Sunday just before closing to get some great deals on them! You can always make them ahead and freeze them so that your ready for the Holiday’s and have cut your Holiday meal expenses down by doing this. I LOVE our Flea market/ Veggie stands because come Sunday I can get a case of different items from $1-$3 a case! Talk about a savings! Then I go home with my cases and steam the veggies and freeze them.
If your going to be making Sweet Potatoe pie, Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Fruit and Veggie Trays and more then this will be a HUGE savings to your Holiday Budget. Remember you can have it all but without it making a huge dent in your budget. This is great if your feeding a small or large amount of people this holiday. Plus you will have veggies you can freeze for the winter as well.
