    Not that this is a reason to do something (or not). It is just for so long I thought I was doing something wrong because I didn’t use coupons. But the majority of what we buy is fresh produce and bulk grains and nuts. Didn’t have coupons for what I bought. It is nice to read others have the same experience. Yes, we do big store runs for items. We just lost our Cash and Carry type of store in my town. Thanks for the post.

      Sorry you lost your store that’s similar to Cash & Carry! I love that place and it seems like a secret find!! If you buy whole foods, fresh produce and wholesome, simple foods, there simply aren’t coupons. I attended an event recently where I was given several coupons for “free” food items to try at my grocery store. I ended up not using the coupons because after reading the ingredients, I realized they were just chemicals/junk – not food I want my family to eat. Thanks for the comment!!

    Things have changed a little in the coupon industry. More and more whole foods are becoming available at discounts thru the use of coupons. I’ve gotten several boxes of whole wheat pasta for free, and there are coupons in the last two weeks papers for fresh grape tomatoes and Dole fresh slaw mix. Not to mention milk and other organic products. Others too numerous to name in the health and beauty aisles — haven’t paid for soap, deodorant or shampoo in a while. And lots of natural products are becoming a regular occurrence. It might be worth the two bucks and fifteen minutes or so a week to grab a paper and just see what’s out there. :-)

      You are right, Kellie and I have checked through the coupons from time to time and found a few items we buy are in there – mostly the fancy deodorant my kids like to buy! Good tips! Thanks….

  3. Great tips. Also a way to stay mindful of food waste, a huge problem in our country!

      Thanks Jessica! I agree about the food waste problem.

  4. Yay! I don’t use coupons either for that very reason. If only Whole Foods would start giving out coupons for produce!

      That would be great, wouldn’t it? I’d take coupons for produce from almost any store!! Thanks!
