June, which is designated as national safety month, also marks the official start of summer and kicks off summer vacation for many people. While you may not necessarily be thinking about your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) as you lay by the pool, there are seasonal products and services that you should be aware are FSA eligible. Why not stock up on summer essentials and save money by using your FSA? Here’s a quick peek at some common items that you can purchase with your FSA and use during the summer months:
