Extreme Couponing Tip: Pick Frozen Produce When Out of Season

With summer just around the corner, fresh produce is coming into full swing! However, not all produce is at its peak at the same time, so when you can’t buy fresh, choose frozen!

While you may love fall and winter favorites like cranberries, squash, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, sweet potatoes, edamame, and okra, you won’t love the pricey out-of-season price tags that come along with them. When the craving hits, opt for the frozen section. Frozen fruits and vegetables are picked at their ripest and nutritional best and are available at a fraction of the cost. A bonus is that frozen products sometimes have coupons you can pair with them!

And remember that when your favorites are in season and at rock bottom prices, freeze your own for later use. Great frozen candidates include grapes, berries, peppers, cherries, peaches, corn, peas, and green beans.
