When you don’t use coupons, you spend more. When you don’t save money, you have no reserves. When you don’t plan, life hits you. Life is busy. That doesn’t change. Money is tight. We hope that changes, but it is what it is right now. One thing you can change: habits.
Part of being a Savings Angel shopper is making smart choices for your family. While it’s entirely possible to use a coupon and buy junk food for 60-80% off, my philosophy is to find the best deals on the healthiest foods for my family. Additionally, from the money I save on other areas of my grocery bill, such as buying cleaning supplies, hygiene products, and paper products for 60-80% off, I’ve been able to afford more food from the produce section. This has had a very positive effect on my family’s health. Three years ago, I lost over 50 pounds in one year’s time – and I have coupons to thank for my weight loss.
If you’d like to succeed in getting your family into healthy eating the Savings Angel way, here are five of my biggest tips!
