How to Save Money on Groceries When Dealing With a Food Allergy
If you’re currently dealing with a food allergy in your household, you’re not alone. Close to 15 million people in this country suffer from one kind or another, according to the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. Medical science hasn’t yet discovered a cure for the many varieties out there, so unfortunately your only option right now is to find ways to cope. The exorbitant costs of specialty groceries present one of your biggest challenges. If you’re not careful, you can easily watch a lot of money go down the drain on dairy-free, nut-free, and gluten-free products.
Here are five tips to help control your grocery expenses when dealing with that pesky food allergy:
1. Check the Manufacturer’s Website
By now, you probably have a list of your favorite allergy-friendly food manufacturers. Have you searched for discounts on their products directly from their websites? Companies like Silk, which produces dairy-free products, and Udi’s and EnjoyLife, which both produce gluten-free foods, all offer coupons online. Just print them out at home, and make sure your grocer accepts Internet coupons. Publix and Walmart are good bets.
2. Use Internet Coupons
Sign up for daily deal websites such as Groupon and LivingSocial, and you never know what you’re going to find. I recently bought a 50% off gift card to Whole Foods, one of the biggest suppliers of organic and allergy-friendly foods in the country. Also check out the online grocery delivery services, such as Peapod, for discounts on specific products you like. If they’re offered at a good price, stock your pantry up with enough to last until the next big deal comes along.
3. Get More Coupons From Your Grocer
Clipping coupons can save you a lot of money, but trying to find allergy-friendly foods in a print catalog can be a chore. If you sign up for your preferred grocer’s loyalty program, you can cut down on the inconvenience and yield yourself some big discounts. In a typical loyalty program, your grocer tracks your purchases and sends you targeted coupons in the mail to redeem on your favorite items. Some programs tally rewards points which you can redeem for big savings at the end of the month.
4. Review Ingredient Labels Closely
You’re probably already conditioned to check ingredient labels thoroughly, but with food allergies, the devil can be in the details. Foods you buy are occasionally produced in factories that also process nuts, and if your child has a nut allergy, this could be especially dangerous. Generally, these manufacturers include disclaimers on their labels to prevent lawsuits, but as a parent you can never be too careful – always be sure to read the fine print.
5. Stock up When You Find a Deal
Stocking up is a good strategy for everyone, but especially the allergy-conscious shopper. If you’re lucky enough to find a good a deal on a food you like, buy enough for at least a few months. Specialty products are not often on discount, so you can save big bucks by buying in bulk when they are. Just check the expiration date and buy as much as you think you can use before the food expires. You’ll also want to make sure you have sufficient home food storage in place.
Get your family members checked regularly by a medical professional and find out if they are still in fact allergic to a particular food. Research has shown that 20% of kids eventually outgrow peanut allergies and 80% recover from dairy allergies. The last thing you want is to continue paying high prices for specialty foods you don’t need. You can save significant money in the long-run by keeping a vigilant eye on that allergy.
