While the temperatures are cold one day and warm the next day, many people are thinking of different types of outdoor activities. Of course, with warm weather may bring on some healthier meals.

To save on your budget with the organic foods and fresh produce, review your weekly coupon inserts against the sale ads.

Then, take the savings from the non-food items such as household products like cleaning supplies, laundry detergents and paper products. Other areas for savings include toiletries like shampoos, conditioners, deodorants and lotions. It is truly a balancing act, saving on side non-food items in order to spend on the healthier side. After a couple of trips to the stores, you will become a professional shopper and walking out the door with savings in your pocket.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan.

This is the 16th week of the year. Place $16 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $136 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
