Money Saving Tips for Grocery Shopping with Food Allergies

Posted 7.23.14 | Christine Graham-Garo

We all know the cost of food is not going down any time soon. Costs can go up so suddenly that it can catch you off  guard financially.  I came across this article from Yahoo Finance which had 8 steps to help soften the costs of food allergy friendly foods. A few of the tips were to use loyalty programs which can help the grocer track your purchase habits and send out targeted coupons. If you buy allergy friendly foods, most likely you will get allergy friendly coupons. Checking websites for coupons can be helpful too. Websites such as Allergy Free and Food Allergies…on a budget offer coupons on their site for you to download.  Another tip to save on grocery costs is to choose more fresh products such as fruits and vegetables. You could save lots of money by buying fresh. In order to minimize spoilage, you can freeze berries before they turn bad and use them in a shake for a nutritiously rich snack.

Another resource I found and thought was really interesting to listen to was this free webinar from Kids with Food Allergies.  Sarah Roe, also known as the Money Saving Queen, gives a very personable 1 hour webinar on how to save while grocery shopping with food allergies. It’s very practical and she gives so many tips, you can utilize at least one she shares to save some money.

What tactics have you used to help save money on food?

We hope this helps!

    I am a foster parent and my super preemie foster child “Alana” is 7 months old and weighs 8 pounds. We have finally found your formula which agrees with her so well. She has a protein allergy. Any help with coupons would be so appreciated.
