The newest TLC show people love to hate is Extreme Couponing. I am so the opposite of an extreme coupon-er. If I use even one coupon once a month that is a lot for me. I am not proud of this, but that’s just how it is. A large part of our monthly budget feeds our growing family. I wish I knew how to lower our grocery costs, but I never see coupons for the things we buy.
I find all that coupon clipping that some people do fascinating. And exhausting. We get the Sunday paper and coupons with our receipts at most places we shop, but I’m not going to buy brands or products that I don’t like just to save money. Maybe that’s what I’m doing wrong.
If there are coupons for fresh fruit and vegetables and organic products, point me in that direction, please! Most of the coupons I use are on the package of something I bought in the past. I did use a coupon for organic salad the other day, but it was only for $1 off when you buy two. Is it possible to save the big bucks on non-processed non-organic fare?
I also don’t have any extra time to spare. Is there a quick and easy way to save money on healthy food for your family? How do you coupon?
