Welcome to Day 6 of 10 Days of Gluten Free. Here’s today’s frugal tip:
Use coupons! The myth that coupons are only for unhealthy items is being rapidly debunked. In particular, coupons for specialty items, including gluten-free and organic items, are popping up all over the place. There are even coupons for produce available. If you collect and organize your coupons in an easy-to-use system, then wait for a sale, you may end up paying a fraction of what that favorite item typically goes for. And don’t be afraid to contact your favorite brands to see if they offer coupons. If it’s something you buy all the time, you might as well get a discount! Just look up their website and hit that “Contact Us” button. Tell them you really enjoy their product (or would like to try their product), whichever is applicable, and would they be willing to send you a few coupons. The worst that can happen is you get a “no”, but often you will get a “yes”!
In addition, you should be using coupons for the non-food items in your life, so you can free up some of that money for your food budget, which will be a bit heftier for you than for many others.
