Did you know you can cut your cost on fresh fruits and vegetables? You might say how do you do that when there are no coupons for them?
Well there are coupons out there for fresh produce. They might not be as easy to find as most others, but they are out there.
If you cant find a coupon then you can try these ways to save.
When you see a post on a coupon for something that has a overage use that at Walmart (This is one of the only stores I know that will let you put the overage towards the rest of the items). Even if the item is something that you would not usually buy, as long as it is Free with a overage use it.
Just make sure when you buy that item you have something else in the cart for that overage to go towards.
See this example:
- Breathe Right (2 ct) – $0.97
- Use Coupon
- $1.50/1 Breathe Right 12ct or smaller 01/29/2012 RP Insert (exp 03/15/2012)
- Price Free + $0.53 Money maker
- Then add a lemon (usually around $0.50 each)
- Price Free Breath Right + a Free lemon
Another way you can save is to shop in season or at farmers markets. Did you know that a lot of vegetables and a few fruits can be frozen? When you buy in season you can get stuff cheap so buy extra and freeze it, then take it out as you need it. I will try to get a list together and post it, of ones that I know that can be frozen.
One other way to save is to use the rebates you get back on your fresh produce and meats. A lot of the rebates that we send away for we make money on from using coupons to buy that item. So use that overage on your fresh purchases.
