So who hasn’t been to the grocery store lately and watched as the price of food goes up and the packaging seems to be getting smaller? It’s a frustrating fact as everyone continues to cut back.
A few months ago I complained about the cost of organics. The fact that “grocers charge more because they CAN” is really bothersome, but true. As I mentioned, it’s definitely not an inexpensive choice and now (as reported by Environmental Leader) the growth in the sales of organic foods has slooowed down by 20%, compared to the same time last year.
And next, I ask you, when was the last time you had a coupon or discount on organic and natural products? Even scouring the coupons often turns up a whole lot of nothin’, but Affluent Pauper is helping us change all of that.
Instead of spending time searching for coupons, just check here. They supply an incredible list of organic products and money-saving coupon offers, all neatly collected in one place, so they do all of the legwork for us. As I looked through the list I was thinking “well, I buy that, and that, and THAT…!” and wouldn’t it be nice to have a coupon for something that wasn’t over-processed and full of a bunch of unhealthy, unnatural ingredients! I’ll drink (an organic glass of milk!) to that one!
The list is even updated on the first Monday of every month, so it’s worth a periodic visit to see what continually gets added.
So, don’t give up on “the green”… check the list, pick your products and save some green along the way!
