Tips for Seniors/Retirees

I’m quite surprised by the number of retirees and seniors that contact me with questions about using coupons and their desire to get started because of their limited income. Most if not all of them are surprised when I tell them some of the items that coupons can be utilized on to have an immediate impact on their budget.

The cost of Vitamins are the number one product that retirees/seniors complain about purchasing. More often than not, they’re told by their physician that they need to take certain vitamins and they aren’t covered by prescription plans. I am happy to report that coupons do come out for vitamins!

I’m going to share a list of items that coupons come out for on a regular basis, that most seniors/retirees are paying full price for. These list of items might surprise you too. The good news going forward is that after reading this article, you won’t have to pay full price again.

1. Vitamins – coupons come out for these brands regularly
Sundown
Nature’s Bounty
2. Glucose Meters
3. Glucose Meter Testing Strips
4. Blood Pressure Monitors
5. Pro-Biotics
6. Ensure
7. Depends
8. Bottled Water
9. Denture Cleaners
10. Hearing Aid Batteries
11. OTC Allergy Medicines
12. Eye Drops
13. Protein Shakes
14. Cranberry Juice

These are the items I get questions about the most and coupons are available for all of the above listed items. Remember to check stores and pharmacies for additional coupons, also send emails to manufacturers and request coupons. Most companies will mail coupons out to you or provide a link to download and print.

Last weekend we had Fourth of July savings and deals to look forward to. This week we have post holiday deals and savings to go out snag. If you have children that are graduating next year and you need to plan a celebration party or get together for, Dollar General is the store and now is the time. All graduation themed items are 90% OFF! Graduation decorations, paper products and novelty items.

For those of you that are like me, and you’re not bothered by little pictures or holiday logos on products. Check the clearance sections at all stores. Products that have a Fourth of July theme will be nicely reduced. Look for paper plates, plastic cups, BBQ sauce and other condiments.

We can even save on food items, specifically at Winn-Dixie! Head to Winn-Dixie and check the meat section and produce section for reduced prices on items. Winn-Dixie places dollar off coupons on meats and vegetables and fruits. Look for reduced prices on chicken, ribs, smoked sausage and hot dogs. Don’t forget to do the Winn-Dixie survey! The information is located at the bottom of the receipts. You can snag a $5.00 off $40.00 Winn-Dixie coupon.

Lastly, start looking for deals on Back-To-School items towards the end of this month. Here are some items to watch out for, and remember coupons do come out for school supplies!

Deli meat, Lunchables, Bread, Cold Cereal, Waffles, Lunchboxes, Crayons, Pencils, Folders, Binders, Granola bars, fruit snacks, pudding cups. These are just a few items to start watching.

Check Out the Sales Cycle for June!

Summer is here, and one of my favorite things about this time of the year, is that fresh fruits and vegetables will be on sale. There are a few companies that put out coupons to help offset the cost. Driscoll’s have coupons for berries, Dole puts out coupons for pineapple’s, bananas and bagged salad mixes and Halo has coupons year round for their fruit. Publix and Winn-Dixie both will have store coupons for fresh produce as well. June is also National Dairy Month. I can’t believe how expensive dairy products are, but this month we can save money on all things dairy. Coupons do come out for milk, eggs, cheese and ice cream. With school being out for the summer, a lot of households will use more dairy products now.
