Can you use coupons and still eat healthy?
I don't like to buy meat, dairy, or produce that isn't organic, and I try not to eat junk food or packaged foods. Unfortunately, it seems like most coupons are for foods that I don't eat. Is it possible to save money and still eat well?
Last night, on "Extreme Couponing," there was a Vegan Lady who only paid the tax on a $700-some order. Here final total was about $25. I, personally, don't believe Vegan is the "healthiest" way to eat, since it lacks a lot of protein that would normally be digested from red meat, so I guess it depends on your version of the word "healthy."
Coupons are usually offers on large produce, such as 25% on McDonalds. I don't think there is a particularly large brand of fruit or veg or there's not enough competition in them markets to offer discounts.
Either way, I don't think I've ever seen a coupon on fruit or veg or anything sparsely healthy. I think you should just watch out for the offers in your local superstores.
Yes, it is possible, though there may not be as many opportunities to save on coupons. I would suggest looking up the websites of some of your favorite brands, as many have on-site coupons that you may not find anywhere else. Other ways to save include local co-ops (i.e. Bountiful Baskets if you're in one of the states where they have it) and group orders from organic distributors.
It's absoultely possible to eat healthy on a coupon budget. There are a lot of coupons that save on vegan hamburgers, frozen non-meat products, almond milks, granola, low calorie products, buy this product get money off your produce.
The key is to find a newspaper that is going to have all the inserts in them. For example, I live in southern california and my local newspaper only gives me one insert and it usually has coupons only for cleaning products. So I found that the LA times gives all the inserts in my region and now I get anywhere from 3-5 inserts every sunday. If you look at www.sundaycouponpreview.com, it lists all the coupons that are going to be released that sunday. Just a heplful site to see if you want to purchase the paper that weekend for specific coupons.

Is buying organic products practical or not?Organic products are supposedly more healthy and environmentally friendly, but most of them come with a heavy price tag. Do the benefits outweigh the cost?
