Woman’s World February 11, 2013 edition has some really good information for all of you interested in Eating Cheap and Healthy. Red Plum conducted a survey among coupon users and came up with some very interesting insights into saving the most while using coupons.
- The couponers who save the most get coupons from multiple sources, circulars, newspapers, websites.
The results of this survey say these people saved an average of $20 a week over those who used only one source to locate coupons. And that clipping and searching for coupons need not consume a lot of your time. Most people spend about two hours a week at the task to complete it successfully (you can find resources for finding more coupon sources on the Eating Cheap and Healthy Website and while you’re there sign up for the Eating Cheap and Healthy News to get more tips, tricks, and resources every month delivered right to your inbox. )
- People who share their coupons, as with most other things, find that the more you share your great coupon finds, the more likely others will share theirs with you. Alerting you to deals they find that you may not know about is a major benefit of sharing.
- Plan ahead, which, if you’ve been reading this website for a while, know is a favorite mantra of mine. But planning your weekly meals around your stores sales and coupons can save you a whopping $200 a month on your grocery bills.
- Grab your cell phone, there’s a coupon Sherpa app at www.couponsherpa.com/mobile-coupons that can save you a bundle. Sign up for your favorite stores apps as well and they can send you deals right to your phone. Isn’t technology wonderful?
If you get your copy of Woman’s World you’ll find deals for 15% to 20% off on everything from flowers to sleepwear; 35% off on super berries and even something to warm your toes with 50% off on slipper socks.

How do you stay healthy and eat well when prices keep going through the roof while we watch?
Here I plan to give you some tips and resources to help you do just that. Do you garden? Even if you live in an apartment, a high rise and condo with no lot or have your own home with a postage stamp sized lot you can do it. We’ll explore how. We’ll discover together what will work for you.
Right now think containers. Anything from an old dish pan to a coffee can (if it’s still the old metal kind) can be turned into a place to grow something
So what do you need? A container, something to put in the bottom to keep plant roots out of the water (You may want to poke holes in the bottom of the can before you begin- then you will need a saucer of some sort to keep water from ruining whatever you place your plant on) then add a couple stones or Styrofoam packaging peanuts to the bottom. Potting soil is next…parsley is a good beginning plant it grows easily and is flavorful for teas, seasoning and making parsley buttered noodles as a side dish.
Container gardening: all of the herbs, most salad greens – lettuce, chives, even tomatoes can be grown in containers. We’ll discuss more, but this is a start to your self-sufficient frugal food plan.
