I gave up on couponing years ago, well before I went Paleo or Low-Carb. Every weekend I'd peruse the coupon fliers that came in the Sunday newspaper and end up clipping coupons for processed foods that we thought we'd like to try. The clipping and organizing and remembering to take the pile with me - it just started to become more of a hassle than a help.
So, one weekend I went cold turkey - no more Sunday newspaper (we were only reading the comics and the coupons anyway). Instead, I kept an eye out on the grocery and drug store ads for the few items that we did use bought them in bulk when they were on sale. The savings in time (and my sanity) were well worth the 50 cents or $1 I would have saved using coupons.
Now that I've cleaned up my food, coupons are even more useless to me. Not once have I run across a coupon for fresh fruit, vegetables, or meat. It's always for processed crap! I can't help but wonder if there were actually coupons for fruits and vegetables, would more people eat them?
Do you use coupons? Do you have any good tips? Comment below...
