Do you use a lot of coupons?
No, I do not use coupons.
I used to, a lot! I was a quantity NOT quality type of girl.
Since being diagnosed with PCOS and reading a lot about proper nutrition and learning that our body needs specific nourishment, I have turned the other way. I am now a quality not quantity type of girl.
With eating whole foods, I have found that I really need to buy and make much less. Whole foods just seem to fill my family's tummies.
Also, a lot of my food comes from local sources (I am a HUGE proponent of giving my money to local sources than to Walmart). Our vegetables and fruit comes from our garden, the family farm, or farmer's markets. Almost all over things except for occasional meat, milk (which soon will be coming from a farm), and cheese is bought at the Local Whole Foods Store. All our home care products with the exclusion of toilet paper are bought through Shaklee.
But when I do need to buy some things from the grocery, I find when I use coupons or look for sales, I buy more than I really needed and thus did not end up saving any money. Therefore, using coupons just isn't for me.
However, I do know lots of people who love their coupons, so I clip out the coupons and hand them off.
I feel like a lone duck on a pond when it comes to whole foods around these parts.
"Did someone say whole foods as in a little fat too?!? No WAY!"
UGH! I get so frustrated!
