Many people hesitate to clip coupons from the Sunday paper, claiming that the coupons are generally for junk food. While I don’t completely agree with that statement (refer to my post “Questions from Readers…Aren’t You Sacrificing Healthy Eating for Junk Food When You Use Coupons?”), I do hope that more organic and natural foods coupons will be made available in the paper. That being said, just because they’re not in the paper, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get your hands on organic and natural coupons right now, as you sit at your computer. I regularly obtain organic coupons and combine the coupons with sales to get free or low cost organic and natural items (I always have a coupon for organic milk!).
So… where can you get coupons for organic and natural products? Well, look no further! I’ll be updating this post monthly so you no longer need to do the legwork. Just visit my blog to find out where to get them! Most of these brands can be found in the natural section of major supermarket chains.
Over the next three days, I’ll post about where to find organic and natural coupons. This will be broken in to three categories:
1) I want my organic coupons today! (coupons that you can get your hands on right now and/or companies with current promos)
2) Yeah, I can wait a bit… (sites that promise special offers if you sign up). This has been posted. Read here.
3) Maybe if I ask, they’ll send me some (sites that don’t have e-mail lists). This has been posted. Read here.
If there is an organic or natural foods company that you’d like to see more of, please leave a post. Also, as companies update their sites, you may find new coupons that I haven't mentioned or go to a site and notice that a coupon has disappeared. If this happens, please let me know. Also, if you find this useful, please leave a post so I can know that my hard work is not in vain (and thanks to Danny for sitting up at 2am creating the links on this! You're a rock star!)
So here’s the first category…
