During one of my recent grocery shopping trips, I used coupons to save on frozen foods. Stocking up on frozen foods is a great way to save time and money. For example, buying frozen pizzas can cost as little as $2 with coupons, opposed to the minimum of $10 it costs to order a pizza. Not to mention the convenience of frozen pizzas! I love to keep a few extras in my freezer for those days when I get home from work and am just too tired to cook or pick something up.Another thing I stocked up on this week was frozen veggies. With coupons, I’m able to stock up on frozen veggies for almost nothing! Plus, did you know that producers freeze vegetables at their peak of ripeness? Fresh veggies are usually picked far before they’ve reached this point. That means that when you buy frozen veggies, you’re getting more flavor along with the added convenience and affordability! Or you can trade for fresh produce!
Here is my list of frozen grocery purchases from this shopping trip:
- 2 Freshetta Frozen Pizzas – $2.00 each
- 2 Digiorno Frozen Pizzas – $2.00 each
- 2 Chicken Pot Pies – $0.20 each
- 2 Sweet Potato Fries – $1.25 for both
- 2 Fries – $1.25 for both
- 2 Ice-cream – $2.00 each
- 2 Hot dogs – $0.50 each
- 10 frozen Veggies – $1.00 each
- 15 frozen dinners – $0.20 each
I Paid: $28.90
These are the kind of shopping trips that make having an extra freezer really pay off! Happy couponing everyone!
