Huggies Diapers for Craigs ListHave you ever noticed how hard it is to find coupons for fresh products or organic items? You don’t often find coupons for these items in the Sunday paper. There are just some items that are impossible to go crazy with by extreme couponing. How do you save on these items then? Well, like the good book says “You have not because you ask not.”

Look up the company that makes the item you are looking for. Yes, you can even contact companies that do fruits and veggies like Dole. Find their customer service number and/or email address. Then contact them. All you need to do is ask them if they have a promotions mailing list and could you get on it? Most of them will already have this set up and will just need your name and address to add you.

In addition, occasionally, you can contact them and tell them something like, “I really like your product or I want to try your product but my family is on a budget and I have to be a coupon mom, do you have any additional coupons I could get?” Oftentimes they will work hard to keep or get a customer.
