Health-conscious consumers are increasingly using coupons to save money, and they are buying fewer food items as well.
But while some consumers may be making a habit of purchasing fewer items, they may be spending more than they can afford.
The Washington Post’s Lauren Frayer explains why shoppers should consider how much they can save on groceries, beverages and other staple items.
In addition to buying fewer items and saving money, some consumers have found that the discount offers they’re signing up for can be a real bargain.
The Associated Press has compiled some of the most commonly cited discounts.
They include a $2.95 discount on all organic produce and milk, a $1.80 discount on fresh fruits and vegetables and a $3.95 bonus for grocery shopping on the next day.
And even if consumers can’t make the savings, they should consider taking advantage of the discounts.
If you can’t afford a $10-plus-item-per-month deal, consider how you can make the most of the offer.
