Frugal Find for the Gluten Free!

 

I was just printing off some coupons and found Gluten Free Barilla pasta coupons! January is all about health and refreshment in the sales world. Take part and get anything from the gluten free pastas to vitamins.

  • Quick primer on printing coupons.
    You do NOT have to print them in color.
    Do trim them neatly.
    Double check if your store of choice has a limit on how many printables you are allowed to use.
    Some coupons say “redeemable at Walmart” That simply means you CAN redeem the coupon at Walmart but you don’t HAVE too!
    Now there are a few coupons that say ‘Dollar Store only” those must be used at the Dollar Store.

Stretch your budget with coupons. Yes, it is perfectly fine to have 2 coupons instead of 50! The goal is to find healthy foods and stretch the food budget as far as we can so everyone has a full pantry!
