Guest Post By- Karen Brown In case you don’t know, being vegan means that you don’t eat any products that contain ingredients that come from animals. This not only means no meat, but also no dairy, eggs, fish, or honey. Many of the very best sales and coupon deals involve products that fall into one or more of these categories, so what’s a vegan supposed to do in terms of working that coupon magic???? Well, there’s good news as well as bad news! The bad news is that you may have to pass up some of the best deals out there! But, the good news is that there are still opportunities; you just may have to look a little harder for them! There ARE coupons available for a lot of vegan-friendly foods. Cereal, non-dairy milk (soy, almond, coconut), peanut butter, canned vegetables and beans, and many condiments like mustard, ketchup, and BBQ sauce all fit into a vegan diet AND are frequently on sale with coupons available. I regularly buy extra inserts, but I also use clipping services to stock up on vegan-friendly coupons when they appear so I’m ready to take advantage of deals as they come up. I have found that this approach allows me to maximize my savings and still enjoy my vegan diet. If you like almond milk, one of the best opportunities for this is with Blue Diamond Almond Milk. There are pretty regular 55 cent off one coupons in the Smart Source inserts. Also, this product is frequently a part of the Kroger mega-sale events, when the price comes down to $1.99 each. My Kroger doubles coupons up to one dollar, so when I combine the coupons with the mega sale, I end up paying just 99 cents for the half gallon! Since the regular price is $3.99, I’ve gotten a great price! Almond milk freezes nicely, so I can stock up when the mega sales roll around so that I have enough to last until the next mega sale! Another example of how having the right coupons on hand helps you take advantage of great deals for vegan-friendly items is this: my local Price Cutter Supermarket, from July through September, ran Libby’s canned vegetables 59 cents per can. When the $1/4 Libby’s canned vegetables coupon appeared in the 8/26 Redplum insert I immediately got several extra ones from the clipping service, and fully replenished my stockpile of canned veggies during September for 34 cents a can! I was in vegan heaven!!! So, with a little planning, even vegans can work the coupon magic for products that they use!!!
