Haven’t seen too many coupons for fresh produce, organic dairy, or meat lately have you? (They are out there, but rare, I will admit.)
Due to the lack of coupons on these Real Food items, I have turned to more creative ways to save.
The $10 off $50 Harris Teeter Recyclebank coupon has become my best friend. I also scour the weekly ads for any $x off $x coupons. Most of my favorite stores will accept competitor’s coupons. Check your store coupon policies and see if they accept competitor’s coupons. (It never hurts to ask!)
Sometimes I receive special coupons in my emails too. Make sure you sign up for emails from the stores you shop at frequently.
Some stores put out coupons in local entertainment books or coupon books.
If you are able to score a coupon, then you need to put it to good use too! Wait for a week that has a great produce and meat sale, and then you can save a lot on the items you need. Supplement these big trips with smaller trips in between for the items that you can score at a good price.
I hope this one makes sense. Do you know of any other places to find store coupons?
