Want to “save green” while you buy green products?

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!

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. Thanks for the coupon site, I will be checking that out. At one time I really complained about the price of organic or all natural products until I thought of it another way. I can either pay more for nutritious food now or pay more in the future for doctor bills and high priced medication.

  2. shari – couldn’t agree more. I am willing pay more for the “good” foods as opposed to the alternative… but it’s nice to have an opportunity to save on those choices too. You know they say the most nutritious way to shop is shopping the perimeter of the store… the fresh, unprocessed foods… when you see the freezer section and all of those ‘ready made’ meals, move on!

    OneGreenMommy – I have used, and still use, many Seventh Generation products and I often get in-store coupons printed with my receipts too!

  3. It’s funny that you would mention the freezer section which makes me think of my microwave. I read a really wonderful book, The Detox Solution: The Missing Link to Radiant Health, Abundant Energy, Ideal Weight, and Peace of Mind a couple years back, got rid of my microwave and really do skip the frozen section. Granted my freezer at home is full, but I know what is in each item and where it came from.

    And on Seventh Generation, that is a great product. I recently tried a different “green” laundry soap from Safeway, was supposed to smell like lavender but I thought is was more musty smelling. Now I’m back to Seventh Generation

  4. Hiya Doreen! I have found that since the demand for organic products is rising, the price is coming down somewhat. I couldn’t believe on my trip to the Target superstore today how many of the organic, whole foods type products they are now carrying. I usually purchase these items at Earth Fare, as I try to not buy too much from “big box stores”, but as Target is now carrying the same brands for a lot less, why not?

    Anyway, I am going to check out the coupon link as every bit helps! Cheers, Kimberly

  6. shari – I really need to start reading more… besides children’s books! 🙂 Thanks for the recommendation. And Seventh Generation really does a great job too… my husband just objects to the smell of them … the price we pay to go fragrance-free!

    Kimberly – Target DOES carry a lot of great products, but I agree on the big-box stores issue. I would rather support smaller, local shops. And I will not, under any circumstance, support Wal-Mart either! — Hope you found some coupons that “help” too!
