Food Budgeting: Coupons

October 29, 2009 at 6:24 pm Leave a comment

 This morning, Good Morning America had a segment about how coupons can stretch your food dollars. Their featured mom, who has a family of six, spends an average of $4 a week on groceries. Now, how much of that is fresh produce? I can’t say, but it does make you think twice about throwing the circular away every week.  You can see the rest of the article here.

A New York Times article last month pointed out that coupon use has increased during the recession, particulary digital coupons from websites that compile bargains. A few websites that are especially useful if you are pinching pennies are:

  1. Red Plum
  2. Coupons.com
  3. Cellfire
  4. Susan Samtur’s Select Coupon Program
  5. Freebies 4 Mom
