Find the Printable Coupon Sites that Specialize in Healthy Foods

While you can sometimes find coupons for healthy foods on the mainstream coupon sites (it really is worth checking them out every so often), you'll do much better if you focus your efforts on the coupon sites that cater to all-things-healthy. A few sites to check out:

Pay Attention While You Shop

You can often find fresh fruit coupons attached to cereal boxes and fresh meat coupons attached to bottles of wine, so train yourself to be an observant shopper. You never know when you're going to spot your next coupon.

Follow a Deal Blog that Focus on Healthy Eating

There are plenty of deal blogs dedicated to finding the best deals on healthy foods. Just find one or two to follow, and you'll be among the first to know when new coupons come out.

A Couple Blogs to Check Out:

Tip: Most deal blogs have a coupon database. Just type "organic" into the search box, and it'll pull up all of the current organic coupons out there. Search with words like, "gluten-free" and "all-natural" to find even more.

Go Directly to the Manufacturer

While you won't find too many coupons for organics in the Sunday circulars, you will find plenty on the manufacturer's websites. Make a list of your favorite products; then, spend some time visiting their sites.

Sign Up for Store Loyalty Cards

When you shop with your store loyalty card, grocery stores pay attention to what you're buying, and will often mail you coupons for those items. That means, if you buy lots of fresh produce and organics, you'll get coupons for those things. Nice!
