In honor of National Celiac Awareness Month, we thought we would share a few tips to help you save on gluten-free foods. When sticking to a specific diet, it can be more difficult to save since the foods you can purchase are limited. Here are a few tips to help gluten-sensitive shoppers save!

Coupons

Coupons for gluten-free foods are a little more difficult to find. There are some methods to receiving these rare coupons. It just takes a little more planning and effort on your part. Sometimes, you’ll get lucky and find coupons for a gluten-free product in your Sunday newspaper. If you don’t want to buy the whole paper just to learn there aren’t any coupons you can use, consider browsing our Sunday coupon preview each week. You can also print coupons from great online resources like Mambo Sprouts or Common Kindness. They offer coupons for great natural, organic, and gluten-free brands. Another great way to get gluten-free coupons is to sign up for eNewsletters, check Facebook or visit the official site for some of your favorite brands. You can also try contacting the company and letting them know you’re interested in their product. They might just send out a coupon or a free sample!

Shop Online

You can buy many non-perishable products online through sites like Amazon or Vitacost.com. You can also try the individual manufacturer’s website. They might have an online marketplace. To get deeper discounts on Amazon.com, try utilizing other sites like Swagbucks. With Swagbucks, you can redeem your points for Amazon gift cards. You can then use the cards to buy your favorite gluten-free brands on Facebook!

Buy In Bulk

Buying foods in bulk is a basic way to save money on any diet – conventional or not. Gluten-free grains like quinoa can often be purchased by the pound at your local natural or health food store. Other items like meat, fish, bread or certain fruits and vegetables can be stored in the freezer until you’re ready to use them. In other words, if you see a great deal on your favorite gluten-free  bread, stock up! You can store any excess in the freezer! You can also check with the manager of your local store. See if they’ll offer any sort of discount for buying in mass quantities.

Other Tips

Be sure to utilize your store loyalty cards at grocery and drugstores. In many cases, the more you use those cards, the more you save overall. Certain supermarkets send you reward checks or coupons just for subscribing to their savings program. Grocery stores are adding more and more gluten-free, organic and natural products to their shelves. Be sure to check your favorite store and utilize that loyalty card!

Another idea is to check out the natural food co-ops in your community. You might be able to find great products at a lower cost. The bonus is that you’ll be benefiting your community!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
