Green on the cheap: Cheap find this week

Everyone knows that the price of food has gone up considerably in recent months, most notably due to gasoline prices and speculation. So I have to share a great find at an even greater price.

Yesterday, I broke down and went to the grocery store. The fridge was bare, with the exception of juice and milk. It was looking pretty bad.

While at Kroger, I saw they still had out coupon books for their organic brands (used to publicize Earth Day). Inside, there are coupons for $1/2 items by Horizons Organics dairy products. The yogurt is listed as 99 cents each (no cheaper than regular yogurt, really anymore).

At the register, the Horizon Organics yogurt cups rang up as 69 cents. Factoring the coupon, you can buy 6 oz. containers of organic yogurt for 19 cents each. Given that my toddler asked for a second container of it in one sitting, it's not a bad deal.

If you decide to stock up, please, recycle what's left of the coupon books and the No. 5 plastic containers, if you are able!
