Save on what you LOVE to eat

I know that many people think eating healthy is expensive, but there are definitly ways to save. I also know that the majority of coupons that are out there (especially the ones that come in the Sunday paper) seem to be mainly for junk food. But here is a great way to save on the items you love to buy. Contact the manufacturer directly! Go to their website, and fill out a contact form letting them know how much you like their product. Or you can look on the package of food, and get the contact info from there, and give them a call. They love to hear our feedback, it's what keeps them going. 9 times out of 10 I get some really great coupons in the mail. If there is a product that you have been wanting to try, you can contact the manufacturer directly also, and ask for a coupon so you can try out the product without having to pay full price. I try to contact at least a few manufacturer's every few weeks. It only takes a few minutes, and you'll be surprised what a few minutes of your time can translate into. The savings really adds up!

Plus, to stretch your savings even more, save these coupons until' your stores have a double or triple coupon event. Many stores will have coupon events where they will double or triple your coupon's face value! My local Harris Teeter seems to have a super double/ triples every few months, (in fact they are having a super doubles event now until'Sept. 21, and will double coupons up to $1.98 face value, meaning if you have a $1.50 coupon they will take off an additional $1.50, so a savings of $3total!) and often other stores in the area will as well to keep up with the competition.

So do a quick search for your favorite manufacturer's and contact them directly, and let them know how you feel about their products. Hopefully the savings will start rolling in:)
