Save on Summer Picnic Staples With These Coupons

By Megan Capone      

While we absolutely love going on impromptu summer picnics, we simply loathe the idea of making last minute runs to the grocery store or (gasp!) grabbing to-go food for our feast. As luck would have it, grocers across the country hold annual sales on summer picnic specialties. Keep your eye out for picnic-worthy goodies on sale. And use these coupons to increase your savings

Here are a few summer staples you’ll want to grab the moment they're on sale to get your picnicking stash ready for summer and coupons to save even more!

BBQ Supplies

From the time summer starts everyone is in a mood to celebrate. So be on the lookout for sales on picnic supplies like condiments, hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, cheese, potato chips, soda, charcoal, paper goods, coolers, insect repellent and sunscreen.

Think About Next Year

Although your warm weather festivities may still be in full swing, come August most retailers are deeply discounting summer stock to make way for fall fare. Take advantage of clearance prices on BBQ supplies, charcoal, lighter fluid, sunscreen and insect repellent. If you've got room, anything that won't go bad and is priced lower than it will be next May is a good purchase.
