Green Coupons!

We all know that organic foods cost a little more, but by using manufacturer coupons you can reduce the cost so you’re paying the same price as their non-organic counterparts. I’ve been using coupons for organic milk for the last several months and have noticed a significant savings. I’m saving about $1 per carton, and considering we go through 3 a week, that’s not too bad. I can use the extra $12 a month to support my Starbuck’s habit.

Don’t forget to check the weekly circulars for the grocery stores in your area. I’ve learned to plan my menu around their sales, and I always stock up when they put meat or chicken on sale. Those items (aside from diapers) seem to hurt the most when it comes to purchasing organic vs. non-organic. You can view all of your area circulars at My Grocery Deals.
