Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Myth: There are no coupons for healthy foods
Reality: They are there, they are not always marketed the same way
You can find fresh produce coupons in the Sunday inserts, there just aren't as many out there. The best place to to find additional coupons are on displays in the stores, at events for healthy living, from manufacturer websites and from sites dedicated to healthy living. The majority of coupons to be found are marketed to those places because the companies advertise with the sites that have the people who will take notice.
One of the best things you can do if you want coupons for organic, natural and fresh foods is visit the manufacturer or producer's website and sign up for mailings and emails from them. Companies tend to give the best offers to people they can directly market to. Earthbound Organic is one of the leaders in this type of offer currently.
After you have the coupons in hand, the best way to use them is to combine them with a store sale. By waiting until something is on sale and using the coupons you maximize the amount saved. Learning how to store the items long term and doing your own bulk cooking can stretch it even more. The Earthbound Organic coupons mentioned have matched to sales at Meijer at least once a month for the last six months. Savings of 75% off retail are common for their products.
When there are not coupons available for what you want, one of the best things you can do is change your shopping plan based on what is on sale that week.
