How to Save Money on Milk, Eggs & Produce – Week 4, Extreme Couponing for Real Life

So how do save money on those things you can’t put in your pantry?

Can’t see the video? Head over here.

We plant a garden each summer and can our tomatoes.  We freeze corn, zucchini, green beans and peppers. This helps us to subsidize the cost in the winter.  I know it’s not possible for everyone to grow a garden which is why it’s great to support your local Farmer’s Market!  Your local producers have wonderful produce items at a much cheaper cost to you.  I’m also a fan of supporting our local economy.

    Milk doesnt really go on sale in PA. I was enrolled in WIC awhile ago and had so much milk. Foud out that if you pour a liitle out, you can freeze it.

    This is some good information :) I just found your site when I was looking for rock bottom price list to start with for my own blog. I gave you and Jenny credit for the list :)

    I was super excited when I got coupons from egglands best then I went to the store and the eggs were over $3/DOZEN the store brand was cheaper :( thanks for the tips I’ll have to look into them.

    Hi Lynette,

    Thank you so much for all of your helpful information. I am brand new to couponing and excited to start. I live overseas on a military base so I do not have access to newspapers or double coupons. What are some good coupon websites you use? Thanks for your help!!!

    Lynette, You don’t know how lucky you are. In ND the milk industry has a hold on the market. The very cheapest milk I can find is $3.69 at CVS. Grocery stores all have over $4 and it never goes on sale.
    Grapes never go lowere than $1.49 a pound and that is rare. I am usually happy at $1.99. Strawberries never go below $2.50 a carton.
    So thanks for the tips, but I am jealous that you have such low prices to find.

      Wow, Karen. I’m sorry to hear your prices are higher. I am aware that I live in an area that has great prices since the cows are down the road as well as the chickens. Knowing your personal rock bottom price is a great place to start though, in saving money. I hope there’s other areas you’re able to find a deal!

        Karen, I am not sure if this will help, but I have learned that I can get strawberries as well as other fruits and vegetable at asian market at the very low price

          That is a very good tip! I’ve gotten onions for 30 cents a pound at asian markets! Lots of times you can also find seafood somewhat cheap at asian markets. It always helps to check those if you can find one in your area.
