You’re a smart clean couponing shopper, so when at the grocery store, you start in the produce section, don’t you? That’s where you’re stocking up on a rainbow of nutrient dense fresh fruits and vegetables. You don’t need a traditional clipped coupon to find a fresh deal! Why not start by checking on the produce that’s been marked down the most?
We recently found this bag of fresh looking oranges and this bag packed with nearly five pounds of bananas, marked down to just 99 cents each!
The oranges are an easy go-to snack for the kids or an addition to a breakfast plate or dinner salad.
To be sure we didn’t waste any of the overripe bananas, we started by peeling one bunch and placing chunky banana pieces into zipped bags. Then we stored them in compartments of a no-longer-used breastmilk storage container before placing them in the freezer.
Some of the remaining bananas can be used in banana bread (that could in turn be frozen for later) or pudding, while most will be raw snack food.
Have you ever asked the produce manager for a discount on fruits or vegetables that look like they should be in the markdown bin? Why not? Happy Clean Couponing!
