It’s a common misconception that you can only get highly processed junk foods for cheap (or even free!) with coupons. While it's true that many of the items you can get for free are processed foods such as cereal, pasta, juice, etc., it's also possible to save on many other items at the grocery store such as bagged salads, spices, sugar, yogurt, cheese, bread, frozen fruits and vegetables and many others.
If you don't want your family to eat a certain thing just don't buy it, even if it's free or very cheap. It's as simple as that! If it's too good of a deal for you to pass up you could buy the items and then donate them to a local food bank that I'm sure would be grateful for the donation.
Be sure and check out our list of where to find organic coupons. These are free coupons that will help you save the next time you buy your favorite organic brand foods. If your favorite company isn't on the list try searching for their website online and write them to thank them for their product and kindly ask them if they provide coupons and where you can find them.
Last but not least, don't forget that if you're saving big chunks of money on non-food items at drugstores you can probably afford to splurge a little on your favorite healthy foods. Getting toothpaste for free and razors for $0.50 is bound to give you a little more wiggle room in your budget so don't feel bad for paying full price for those organic strawberries that you love so much. It's okay to spend money on things that you enjoy. Always try to buy seasonal foods, look for sales, use a coupon whenever possible but at the end of the day you have to decide what's worth saving and spending on.
