31 Ways to Save on Your Grocery Budget: Tip #28


Last year, Nathan and I went blueberry picking. We had so much fun! I told him that we'd make this an annual event! I went back a second time and spent most of one morning picking enough for our pancakes/waffles over the winter.

We also go apple picking in September/October, as well. We'll have plenty of apples for snacks, pies, applesauce, etc. They also have activities there for the kids and we make a big family outing out of it, meeting up with my sisters and their kids, too!

And last year, we just started a new one of picking out pumpkins for Halloween at farms, rather than at a store. What I love about this is that you are helping to directly support a farmer rather than giving some of the profit to the stores.

Not sure where there's a location by you? You can try this site HERE and see if they have one on their list.

Not only are pick-your-own locations fun family time but you also can save money on your grocery budget, as well!

Tune in tomorrow at 9AM for Tip #29.


  1. Blueberries are so good for you it is wise to work them into your diet when ever you can.

  2. i would be interested in seeing a price break down of u-pick them. apple picking in the chicago area can be expensive and when i ran the numbers you don't really save money when compared to getting apples on sale during apple season.

    it is fun, and i love to pick apples. we do it every year because it is fun, not because it saves money.
