Finding Dharma in a Sustainable Lifestyle
I used to be really into couponing. I was never good food couponing, but I got all of my shampoos, laundry soaps, deodorant, and dish soaps practically free. These days I make most of my own cleaners.
We still buy food, so I have started to learn about healthy NON GMO couponing. A dollar saved is a dollar earned after all…
I also use an app to help my buying, called Buycott. I have joined the Non GMO campaigns on the app, and try to scan the products we use. They include family trees of the companies that own the things you scan too. Vote with your dollars!
Each of the Sustainable Coupons pages has a wealth of information.
I am moving to Austin soon and will be adding more stores once I get used to those systems. I also shop at Aldi (who does not accept coupons) and Natural Grocer (who does accept coupons and even has paper coupon books). Look into your local health food stores too. They might have coupon options.
If you are familiar with another store’s couponing, PLEASE let me know. I would love to have help and a second person to write! (All Bloggers who help get all credit for what they do.)
At Target.com you can print coupons to use at Target. Also Simply Balanced is NON GMO. It is part of a project to make healthier food easier to buy. It is because of this, I have started shopping at Target more. I would rather buy from them and support this. Archer Farms is another Target Store brand, and is often a healthier option than some of the major companies. Just always read labels!
Some Krogers allow you to combine both printable coupons and card coupons on the same item. If that is an option at your Kroger, be sure to stack up coupons where you can. It is good to know a store’s coupon policy so be sure to find out. If that is not an option the scanner will not accept the paper coupon.
