11 Things to Buy in June
June signals the onslaught of summer blockbusters. Big budgets and an audience eager to escape the heat spur movie ticket discounts and other incentives. Some theaters also show kids' movies at bargain prices on weekdays in the summer. Starting in June, Regal Cinemas is charging only $1 for family favorites on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
June brings a fresh fruit and vegetable boom, an ideal time to get in the habit of buying local produce. Depending where you live, the fruits to buy include melons (watermelon and cantaloupe), berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries), and stone fruits (apricots, peaches, and nectarines). Kick off the grilling season with sales on the first crop of sweet corn, summer squash, green beans, and tomatoes, plus lettuce and cucumber for salads.
