You CAN save money and only buy healthy stuff!!!
I am a die-hard couponer. Now that I have a new-found gluten intolerance and have changed all of our eating habits from the processed junk to only real foods - whole food ingredients that I can pronounce, I was presented with a new challenge....saving money while buying only healthy, nutritious foods. Could I do it?
I hear a lot of people say that they can't coupon because they only eat healthy food. Well, I did just that. I didn't buy any of the junk from the middle of the store. I bought organic milk, cage free eggs, no sugar added (not even fake sugar) yogurt, a bunch of produce, hummus, pita chips (the only processed thing I bought), real maple syrup, and 3 packs of Jennie-O turkey burgers. My total was $55.80. My savings was $53.90. $22 of that was in COUPONS - yes, actual COUPONS - for the good stuff.
So there....you CAN shop healthy and use coupons. It helps to have a store that cares about good foods and provides store coupons for them on occasion, but even so...I saved quite a bit of money and feel good that my family is eating healthy - and cheap - food. I kind of feel vindicated after this challenge. :)
