10 Days of Gluten Free: Day 6

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.

  1. I live in an area where coupons are redeemed for face value only — no double or triple coupons around here. But I still clip (and print from online) coupons and actually use a few — especially on non-food items. Sometimes I will find really good coupons for things I use all the time like almond milk and I consider that a bonus. Even though I don’t save a lot with coupons I figure every little bit helps.

    Every little bit does help, especially since most gluten free products are so expensive!!

  3. I use coupons all the time, and yes, it is possible to find coupons for GF foods. Check out Whole Foods flyers, and when items are on sale and there is a coupon, you can stock up. They usually have stacks of flyers and printable coupons online. You’ll have to ask your WF how many coupons they allow for the same item, but their coupons are usually good for 1 to 2 months. Always do a search online before you go buy anything. You can usually snag a coupon. And Trader Joe’s has good prices.

    Coupons are the only life saver my grocery budget has on a GF diet.

  5. Jessica B says:

    I have not had too much luck finding GF coupons.

  6. I don’t go anywhere without my coupons

  7. Thanks for your fabulous tips! I am still learning the ropes with coupons and health food, but now I’ll try to scope out the deals and pay more attention to coupons that are available.

  8. I use coupons whenever i can, but they do seem to get to me at times.

  9. I haven’t had much luck using coupons since I mostly buy meat and veggies, not. Also, it’s frustrating that most online coupons now require a Windows computer running IE to be able to print them, because you have to download software for it. I don’t and won’t run either.

  10. I use coupons whenever I can get my hands on ones for the product I buy all the time! Or even to try something new.

  11. I LOVE COUPONS!!! I have had luck going to Facebook sites and online gluten free company sites to get gluten free good item coupons.

    Couldn’t make it without couponing!

  13. Cindy W. says:

    I need to get better about using coupons.
