Are you wondering how to keep your grocery budget down?

Staying under budget and eating well are a big challenge for many of us.

Two tips for saving money are to shop what’s on sale by month and buy fruits and vegetables in season.

Because of the popularity of Grocery Sales Cycles – When Do Things Go on Sale?, I decided to start a new monthly post featuring what’s on sale by month.

The big holidays this month are Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day.

You’ll find corresponding items for these holidays, like salsa and grilling meats on sale this month.
