Day 6/366 Couponing

I have a deep respect for couponers.  The Extreme Couponing show on TLC absolutely stuns me when you see what they ring up at the register.  The available savings is incredible. 

I’ve always wanted to coupon myself, but rarely have the time to search for all the deals.  Lack of time, as well as lack of space living in NYC makes it slightly prohibitive.  Also, being a vegan makes it difficult being coupons for vegan companies often are not as easy to find as your standard, coupon deals.

When Couponing.com reached out to me about potentially doing a guest post, I was psyched!  Not only is their site very informative, but they’re also experts on the subject meaning they know where to find vegan coupons!

The below post was written by Couponing.com’s James Lander. Couponing is a coupons and deals website that is dedicated to providing consumers with the most authoritative couponing information available.

There’s been a steady increase in gas prices over the years, which has led to a rise in food prices too. Many people have thus been left in a tight corner and have to keenly account for every dollar spent. More and more people are turning to more frugal ways of living, such as extreme couponing. Vegan shoppers too, can take advantage of vegan coupons to save on food.

It doesn’t take rocket science to search for and clip coupons but it does take a lot of time. Coupon enthusiasts spend anywhere between three to six hours a day searching for coupons. Consequently, majorities of people who shun coupons do so because they consume a lot of time.

However, sparing just an hour to clip coupons before you do your grocery shopping could save you up to $30. Couponing can really make a huge difference if you play your cards right. Savvy shoppers can make up to 50 percent savings on food and other personal items.

There are lots of tips and tweaks you can use to make the most of couponing – buying in bulk, shopping at stores with double coupon discounts, and a range of online coupon deals on various websites. However, the real question is: how does this work if you are vegan?

Searching for viable coupons in newspapers and online is no mean feat, but vegan brands are particularly hard to find coupons for. Nonetheless, there are some useful tips and resources you can use to source for vegan coupons. Here are some ideas on how to find vegan coupons.

Blogs and online forums – There are a number of vegan blogs and forums that you can join, not just for sharing knowledge but for getting coupon ideas too. While you won’t get online printable coupons directly from these blogs, you will receive lots of information on various coupon deals available from a particular retailer.

Many coupon deals are posted to the live feeds of these online communities and if you’re keen enough, you can make the most of these deals and get free coupons. One of the best known forums for vegan coupon enthusiasts is the ‘Vegan Coupons’ community on Facebook, which has a similar page on Twitter too, as well as Google Plus. There is another community on Twitter, ‘Vegan daily deals @vegandeals’, which compiles local one-day deals related to different vegan companies.

Coupon bloggers also send out daily posts about deals they may be privy to, depending on what blog it is. Besides coupon deals, there’s usually a huge collection of money saving information through discussion notes, short posts, and other articles of interest to vegans. Most times, these discussions are random but you can pick up a lot of useful information about saving tips.

      The cleanse I did was called the “Clean Program” by Alejandro Junger. You can find more information on the program here and by the book here.
