I read an interesting piece on Yahoo yesterday. Despite last year’s extreme couponing craze, in 2012 Americans actually cut their coupon use by 17 percent compared to 2011.

Why? While the number of coupons available have increased, the coupons that most people use, food coupons have decreased. The coupon values have also decreased and more coupons are for two or three products, not just one. Redemption times for coupons are also decreasing.

I noticed over the past year that the online food coupons have not been as great as they were when I first started doing this monthly coupon feature. This month, the number of coupons I found for natural and organic products is about as dismal as I’ve ever seen. Still, every little bit helps, so here are the best online coupons I found for February 2013.

For more manufacturers that offer online coupons, but make you jump through a couple of hoops for them, check out Where to find coupons for natural and organic products.

Please remember that products labeled natural are very loosely regulated. Some of them may contain genetically modified ingredients (GMO).
