You can save money if you buy your produce when it is in season. Here's what is going out of season, is still in season, and is newly in season for September.The best time to buy fresh produce is when it is in season. That is when the prices are at their lowest of the entire year. Of course, it helps if you know what produce to look for when you are ready to go grocery shopping. Some of the produce that is in season during the month of September is the same as what was in season for August. There are also some new additions to enjoy!

What’s Going Out of Season?
It is time to say goodbye to a few of your summer favorites. Strawberries are heading toward the end of their season. Watermelon and cantaloupe are on their way out, too. Mangos and summer squash will no longer be in season when the calendar flips to September.

Are any of these foods among your favorites? You might still be able to get a good price on them at the grocery store if you move quickly. The last of them will sell out soon. Once that happens, you will have to wait until next year for them to come back in season and be at their freshest.

What’s Still in Season?
Berry lovers can take comfort in knowing that there are some berries that are in season during both August and September. Blackberries and blueberries will still be fresh in September. It might be nice to toss some blueberries into baked goods as the September weather cools down.

Carrots and apples, two healthy foods that are easy to toss into school lunches, will also stay in season for September. Oranges, a favorite snack to bring to your child’s soccer game, is another fruit that is in season during both August and September. Cucumbers will stick with us for a while, too. Now is your last chance for a year to freshen your water with sliced cucumbers (or to use those slices as part of a beauty routine).

Pumpkin, which came into season in August, will continue to be in season for September. Get ready to start seeing lots of pumpkin flavored drinks, pastries, breads, and anything else you can think of. There are those who feel that Halloween is the perfect time to start serving pumpkin pie.

What’s New in September?
Peaches and plums are now in season. Parents can substitute them for the oranges or apples that their child is tired of eating for lunch. Mushrooms and garlic are in season during September. Now is a good time to try out a “from scratch” pasta sauce recipe. Those who enjoy spicy foods will be happy to know that September is when chili peppers are in season. The hot spices can feel really good when the weather starts to get cooler.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
