99% of every coupon posted on here is for unhealthy junk food. And we wonder why parents are letting their kids become obese.

pokey 7 years, 7 months ago

Exactly what I was thinking, FREE high fructose corn syrup with the purchase of three other products also containing high fructose corn syrup. No thanks.

countrygirl 7 years, 7 months ago

And you're going to wind up with 4 of a lot of them.

Irenaku 7 years, 7 months ago

whats_going_on: I agree...my first thought as I skimmed through the list was: "I don't feed my kid any of this stuff..." Gives me the shivers!

9070811 7 years, 7 months ago

No kidding! Great for you to point this out. Is it really worth it to buy some of this junk, just to get one for free? Not really.

SuperJenn 7 years, 7 months ago

Please feel free to check out these printable coupons as well:


These are from Mambo Sprouts, one of the many organic/health food sites that I have referred to in my posts!

Happy Shopping!

Evan Ridenour 7 years, 7 months ago

Every single one of those coupons is for food I would never eat.

Not only is it junk food but it is crappy junk food.

Mike Hatch 7 years, 7 months ago

The only product I would ever normally buy from that list is the A-1, but I don't need three bottles of the stuff. Three bottles would last me 3 years.
And maybe the bacon (I admit it). But I sure don't want 4 packages of the stuff.

lgreen17 7 years, 7 months ago

These products aren't free. They come with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and a myriad of other health issues that the tax-payer is ultimately going to have to pay for.

Katara 7 years, 7 months ago

Where have you been, vertigo? Not do those foods give you diabetes, high blood pressure and make you obese, but they do so instantly. The second any one of those foods touches your lips - POOF! Instant diabetes!

Heck, the mere mention on this blog that these foods exist gives some people high blood pressure.

Amish steel cut oats are the only safe food nowadays. I suggest you buy at least 5lbs. It is the only way to be healthy.

whats_going_on 7 years, 7 months ago

actually, "sugar free"/light/"healthy" stuff commonly uses HFCS as a substitute. Beef hot dogs are still not great (albeit, better than pork). Pasta (Mac & Cheese) is TERRIBLE...ever looked at the back? Bacon and cookies...'nough said. I was surprised (and saddened) to see that Cool Whip Light has HFCS as it's first ingredient.

I was simply implying how ironic it was that most of the stuff on the list (and other lists in past weeks, and it coupon books) are mostly junk, processed food and there was a story today about childhood obesity.

Don't even lie and tell us you don't see it. If you don't, go back and read the list.

Katara 7 years, 7 months ago

Cool whip Lite is called that because it has less fat than regular Cool Whip. Generally foods that have the word light/lite in them are referring to a lower fat content, not sugar/or corn syrup/or HFCS content. Fat used to be the #1 evil in food. Now it is HFCS.

Are you aware that correlation ≠ causation? All the major studies on HFCS provide only correlative data. Everyone is too busy looking for a simple answer to a complex problem.

The study about obesity in Kansas girls uses BMI as the standard to measure obesity. This is a bad tool to use. It does not measure actual percentage of body fat. It estimates body fat percentage using height & weight and is not remotely accurate. Using poor data to make health pronouncements is a bad idea and could end up being harmful (for example, children being prescribed medications that are not appropriate for them.).

People want to take extreme examples and extrapolate them into being what the norm is as proof of why their ideas are best. This is nothing new and it is no different that these companies marketing their products. Think of it as cultural marketing instead.

somedude20 7 years, 7 months ago

"From 2003 to 2007, the percentage of Kansas girls 10 to 17 years old who were obese nearly doubled, a new federal study shows."

I think we just found out how the obesity sickness has spread! My god, look at those foods on her list. All those fat laden foods and the closest to healthy are the nuts and dressing that takes healthly out of salads.


Mike Hatch 7 years, 7 months ago

cheese, crackers and ham/chicken/turkey sounds innocent enough but have you read the labels of Lunchables?

Some versions get almost half of their calories from fat.


I'm far from a health nut, but you could put together your own version of this pre-packaged mess cheaper that tastes better and is better for you. And the thing is, that product is mostly marketed towards kids.

Katara 7 years, 7 months ago

While I don't disagree that you could make your own version with less expense and perhaps healthier, Lunchables are handy for when you need a last minute lunch (if you are a parent, you've had those "Oh by the way mom/dad, I need xxxxxxxxx today. I forgot to tell you until this morning as we are on our way out of the house" moments).

whats_going_on 7 years, 7 months ago

and expensive! Buy a box of crackers, a cube of cheese, invidividual box of snack size candy bars, a bag of apples and a box of individual juices, and voila, you have yourself about 10 homemade lunchables for the price of one "real" one.

Katara 7 years, 7 months ago

Ummm, yes. Cost was mentioned both by scopiguy & I in our posts.

I'm surprised that you mentioned candy bars. Chock full of HFCS, those are. Are you trying to kill your children with those bars of death?

And actually, your example would not be cheaper always. Even using coupons & going by sales, the cost of those individual items are going to outweigh the costs of a Lunchable meal when on sale & with a coupon. The last sale of Lunchables at Dillons had them @ free (10/$10 & the coupons out were $1/1). You are going to tell me that you get all the items for your homemade Lunchables at a better price than free? You using a 5 finger discount?

9070811 7 years, 7 months ago

A candy comes with a lunchable. WGO was referring to a homemade comparable lunchable. Even if they're cheaper, at least you'd be paying for quality instead of some craptastic stuff in a plastic container with a questionable shelf life.

Adrienne Sanders 7 years, 7 months ago

Yeah, lunchables about gave me a (figurative) heart attack when I realized how many calories etc. were in there. It's just some cheese and crackers, WTH?!! Not the healthiest lunch ever but really shouldn't be so bad for you.

Mike Hatch 7 years, 7 months ago

The only thing missing from the list of specials is an assortment of "Negligent Parent Helper".

(That's supposed to be funny)

Remember that cereal that was sold in some kind of plastic packaging that came with a compartment of milk so the kid could dump his cereal in the milk by themself--for the parents who were too lazy to pour some cereal into a bowl?

Emily Campbell 7 years, 7 months ago

Whoa whoa whoa!

I am so sick and tired of people complaining! Get off your high horse and away from the computer. No wonder kids are so negative, ungrateful, and terrors anymore! If a child is over weight and under 18 ... blame the parents! Get a grip on life and be responsible for your actions in letting your kids have so much "free will".

whats_going_on 7 years, 7 months ago

I agree?...however the first part of your post has nothing to do with the second part. Totally confused.

bearded_gnome 7 years, 7 months ago

hmmm, no mention of exercise, its just easier to fall into the demonization popularized by the Obamas and the far left media.
remember that Michelle Obama is now our obesity Czarina.
yet, mr. obama goes out and gets 10 wings along with fries and onion rings the other day!
do as I say, not as I do.

you know Kat, I think in those cases where it's last minute, the food nazi's want you to have a little packet of homemade granola and you just hand it to little Bambi on the way out the door, along with the stainless steel water bottle! just make sure the oats are the approved kind, approved by the benevolent citizens' committee that is.

don't give her milk unless you milked the cow/goat/tiger yourself!

amazing. the food nazis forget that people have freedom of choice here. some above site the healthcare costs of a bad diet: sadly, we know that these food nazis are going to use this logic to regulate all kinds of food and behaviors. they're already attacking: sodas; salt; certain fats.
now with the passage of the obama healthcare debacle there'll be more push to regulate everyone's lives from the nannystate.

whats_going_on 7 years, 7 months ago

Obama and Michelle also exercise, along with everything else they do. They don't sit on the couch and play video games, watch TV, and comment on here. (hah)

People won't keep themselves healthy, and its driving up other costs for everyone else, so excuse us for being concerned about it. I know you have all the money in the world, but you do realize that you're paying higher prices for healthcare and such because of people who don't watch the health and businesses who put out weekly B1G1 Oreo coupons.

Kris Adair 7 years, 7 months ago

I just like having the information available so I can select the items that work for my family. I do not buy all of those items but I may get a few every now and then. Moderation is the key to our good health. When we do have a treat, like cookies or lunchables, it is nice to know where to get them on sale. Thanks for the info!

9070811 7 years, 7 months ago

Bake your own cookies? Taste better and they don't wack additives.

Randall Barnes 7 years, 7 months ago

serving size people serving size. eat what you want and lawrence does have some great walking trails.even if you are diabetic just start walking on a regulart basis not only feel better but MIGHT even be able to get off your meds.

raise the prices of the junk food and lower the prices of veggies and see how america slims down.

Deja Coffin 7 years, 7 months ago

Okay, so here is my bad food confession of the day.... well, night. After the kids were put in bed I got a really bad craving for something sweet. We don't have cookies or junk like that laying around because I know if we did, not just the kids but my husband and I would eat it all the time. So I'm searching for something to beat this sweets craving; freezer pops, no.... make some muffins, no too long to wait.... jello, ick. But then in the very back of my refrigerator I find it, a container of chocolate frosting. I took a nice heaping spoonful of that frosting and it was Heaven! Now I'm sure some of you health nuts are just throwing a fit but I can't deny it, that frosting was so yummy.... and so worth it! Besides, I'm pregnant, can't I use the old, "I didn't want it the baby wanted it" excuse? Now I do pride myself on eating very healthy most times but we all have those moments of weakness and tonight, the frosting was mine. But I think I read somewhere that women who eat chocolate while pregnant have happier babies.... if I go into labor tonight, this little guy will be grinning ear to ear!!

whats_going_on 7 years, 7 months ago

Aw, congrats on the baby. :)

No one should deny their cravings for sweets all the time if they regularly take care of themselves, preggers or not. Honestly staying totally away from it I think just leads to more food insecurities and a higher risk of a healthy diet failing. Moderation is key. Unfortunately that idea has gotten lost somewhere between the bag of Double Stufs and 5gallon carton of cookie dough ice cream.

Deja Coffin 7 years, 7 months ago

Exactly.... we've just learned as a family that if there's always cookies in the house, someone will always want one. So instead we keep healthier snacks around and have the junk only every once in a while. I was raised in a house where my mother never bought soda and we were hardly ever allowed soda so of course when I moved out I always had soda.... and definitely gained weight because of it. So for me, I think that it's okay to have it every once in awhile and not deny yourself completely but also moderate how much and how often you eat it!

Mike Hatch 7 years, 7 months ago

I'm not big into sweets, but I've been known to eat Spaghettios right out of the can.

Deja Coffin 7 years, 7 months ago

That sounds like something you'd do after partaking in some.... uh... herbal..... recreational..... therapy? Just kidding... my mom wasn't a cook, and she bought the cheap brand but I loved some good old RingO's. Especially when you melted a slice of Velveeta (not the cheap plasticy stuff) in it.

ConcernedAboutSchools 7 years, 7 months ago

I read in one of your blogs the other day that you had Kashi coupons to use with the buy five get a gift card deal. I looked everywhere for Kashi coupons and signed up on their website, but never found a single Kashi coupon. Can you point me in the right direction, please?

Katara 7 years, 7 months ago

I got my Kashi coupons in the mail but the newspaper inserts have not had any lately :( and like you, I was not finding any elsewhere.

http://coupontom.com/ is a good place to search. It even tells you if the printable websites (coupons.com, smartsource.com, etc) have coupons of the brand you are looking for.

If you are going to Target for other items, it can't hurt to look at the Kashi products that are on sale & see if some of the boxes have peelies on them. Peelies are coupons that are attached to the product for you to peel off & remove.

SuperJenn 7 years, 7 months ago

My coupons came in the mail as well, I have seen many around recently that are peelie and blinky ... but I couldn't tell you where off the top of my head :( Sorry. That was more of a depiction of why paying attention to coupons and holding on to them is a good idea. I'll scrounge around some more and see what I can find... I'll get back to you!

9070811 7 years, 7 months ago

I think some coupon users buy unnecessary items just because they feel like they're getting a deal...on something that they really don't need. 3 bottles of steak sauce? Unless you grocery shop once a month or bi-monthly then what is the point of buying crap like this? I guess you can get hotdogs to last the rest of the summer for cook outs. Or if you feel like eating salads for a year you can get 3 bottles of salad dressing. Chances are you're going to try all three in one month, thus they'll be open, which heightens the chance of them spoiling. Spoiling your money!

Katara 7 years, 7 months ago

Your comments confuse me. Below you seem to get one of the ideas that comes along with couponing but the comment above you don't seem to get it.

Many of these deals are mix and match. If you look at the one with the steak sauce, the coupon also has Grey Poupon listed as a product that qualifies for the discount. On top of that you make an assumption about others' usage. Just because you personally don't use that much steak sauce does not mean that others may not use it frequently. Even if you only use it for limited items or just seasonally, the shelf life on those products are pretty long and make them good candidates for stockpiling. With stockpiling, you have a pretty good idea of your family's needs and you buy and stockpile on that idea. You buy the amount needed to cover those needs at the lowest price possible and then you don't have to buy those products again until the next sale at the lowest price possible.

As for salad dressings, those are pretty versatile products. We use them not only for salads but for veggie dip and meat marinades. The same with steak sauce - it has more uses than just something to put on a steak.

SuperJenn 7 years, 7 months ago

There are many organizations in town that house people with no where else to go...and I know they are constantly needing donations...even for things like steak sauce. If you can get the one for less than its normal price by purchasing three more...why not donate those other three to one (or three) of those organizations? I like to think in the bigger picture when I'm shopping :)

Katara 7 years, 7 months ago

Exactly! Donate to organizations or perhaps do the deal & share with friends or family members.

9070811 7 years, 7 months ago

Most of the coupons I find useful are product coupons. As in body products like lotions, make up, detergent and such. They tend to only need to be replaced monthly or bi-monthly. I often save $20ish per trip. Every $20 counts! This is nice because I can afford to purchase good produce throughout the month.

SuperJenn 7 years, 7 months ago

Absolutely! That is what I tell people all the time...I even wrote about that in an article on how to save money on produce! If no other coupon does you good...but you can save money on your paper wares and other household items...you can place that part of your budget into the more pricey items on your list like produce.
