Coupon Myth #2: There Aren’t Coupons for Organic Items
As more and more people are switching over to eating organic foods, I frequently hear the complaint that there are no coupons for organic products. In fact, I know of several people that stopped using coupons all together because they switched to organic and were convinced that coupons were only for non-organic foods.
The thing is, the idea that coupons are only for non-organic items is so no true! With the increased popularity of all things organic, we’re also seeing an increase in the amount of coupons being offered for organic products too. And since buying organic can quickly get expensive, you really should be using coupons to save what you can. Look at this way. If you are struggling to justify the cost of organic, every dollar you save in coupons will free up more money to buy other organic products.
Here are a few coupons available right now at Coupons.com (using zip code 30303):
- $1 Newman’s Own Thin & Crispy Pizza
- $1 Rustic Crust All Natural Pizza Crust (available at Walmart in the pasta aisle)
- $1 Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick Rolled Oats
In addition, you can print coupons or sign up for them on these manufacturer’s and specialized websites. Here are some links to get you started:
- they frequently have coupons for organic items- you just have to keep watching

And while this isn’t exactly using coupons, you can also save by watching for offers from places like Daily Deal sites (think Groupon, Living Social), Amazon and Vitacost. Sometimes you can actually get better deals at these places than you could by using coupons.
