A lot of you may wonder if you can eat healthy on a budget. Since I have started using coupons and emailing companies, I have found that we eat much healthier!
This is a typical meal for us:
This can be you too for just a few minutes of your time each day! The first thing you should do is set a goal of how many companies you want to email a day. Five is a great goal for beginners. The next step is to make a list of what companies you want to email.
Writing companies is simple. The most important thing is to tell the truth. Don't make up complaints and beg for free stuff. Tell the company what you truly think of their products, and if you haven't tried it, tell them you haven't! I have received several free coupons for telling them that I am interested in trying their product and would like to know where to find it.
These are a few key factors to include when you write a letter to a company.
Vanessa Marie Primavera-Sybrandy is the blogger behind johnstownmoneysaving.blogspot.com. Along with entries about saving money, she's made a science of contacting companies and getting coupons in return. She has complied a list of over 700 companies and how they responded to her emails.
