I was browsing through the coupons my local grocery store listed and, as usual, didn't find much that I could use. There are so many products that I don't use or use so seldom that a sale three years ago still has me stocked up.
What don't I use? First, let's get the things that are unique to me out of the way. I don't use pet food of any kind because I don't have pets, I don't buy bacon or pork of any kind because I don't/can't eat it and I avoid commercial cookies and most candy because the HFCS gives me hives. Also, I don't have any babies or kids so those things are out.
Now... here is what I could buy but I don't (taken from the coupon list).
Whipped cream cheese spread
Fancy crackers (Try plain inexpensive saltines with a little butter, toasted under a broiler)
Name brand frozen vegetables (store brand is just as good)
Cornbread squares (I make my own!)
Sandwich slims (whatever that is)
Margarine (including fake butter)
Coffee K Cups
Canned tomato products (I usually grow my own)
And the list goes on. Convenience foods are not necessarily convenient and they're usually more expensive than what you make yourself.
That's why those coupon deals never work for me. I simply don't use the products they are good for. They're not worth it.
