Save Money on Baby Food
Look for easy ways to save big money by using coupons for baby food and other baby products like diapers, baby formula, and baby utensils. Even if you have very specific brand preferences for your baby’s products, you can still find good coupons and special offers if you know where to look. Check out these sources for baby product coupons: russian grocery store
- The Sunday grocery coupon circular frequently has coupons for diapers, baby food, baby dishes and utensils, and various brands of baby formula.
- Your pediatrician’s office usually has baby product coupons or samples available.
- Get even more coupons by directly asking manufacturers to send them to you. You can send your request in via their website or by calling their 800 number. Be sure to share any positive comments about their products if you like them while you are requesting coupons and be sure to include your address in your email.
- Ask the customer service department at your grocery and drugstores if they have any special Baby clubs. They can be a source of many baby product coupons. You may also get money-back rebates from your accumulated spending on baby products. If you are buying your baby products at that store already, then getting automatic rebates for your purchases is like getting free money with no effort.
- Drugstore circulars frequently feature promotions for great diaper bargains, such as “buy one, get one free” offers on their store brand. Generic diaper brands may work just as well as the much more expensive name brands, you just have to give them a try. Stock up at sale prices, and remember that if your baby outgrows that diaper size before you’ve used the diapers, most stores will happily exchange unopened diaper packages for the new size.
These baby product manufacturers offer savings clubs or free coupons. You can also check out your favorite manufacturers’ sites and look for “promotions” or “coupons” Companies that offer generous coupons include Similac, Huggies, Gerber, Beech Nut and Earth’s Best Baby Foods. Simply search these company names in a search engine to find special offers available on their websites.
You can also make your own baby food, which is wholesome and much less expensive than store-bought baby food. I made most of my second child’s baby food, after spending a fortune on my first child’s store bought jars! It does not have to take much time if you learn a few simple tricks. For example, consider that a four-ounce jar of baby food carrots, including the water to process the carrots, costs about fifty cents, about the price of a full pound of fresh carrots in most cities! Baby food in jars offers convenience, but you can find small plastic storage containers that will do the trick just as well. Reusing plastic containers is also environmentally friendly.
You can find many good books on this subject (at no cost) at your local library. You can also find many helpful websites by doing a quick Internet search. I did a Google search of “make your own baby food” and found many informative websites with specific instructions on how to prepare and store several different types of food. I found this recipe from Dr. Sears’ site.
