Much as I hate to admit it, it's time to start thinking about back to school. I'd love to not buy anything for the start of a new school year until the day before, but that's never a good idea. Store shelves will be empty, and I'll miss out on the savings I get from clipping coupons and matching them up with store specials. I've already bought much of the paper, pens, folders and other items on the long list of school supplies for both of my boys. Now, with this month's printable grocery coupons, there's an opportunity to save some money on the snacks I'll be putting in their lunch boxes.

There are plenty of coupons for healthier snacks and even drinks like single-serve organic milk or juice pouches in this month's offerings. In fact, most of the organic and natural coupons this month are for kid-friendly items to include in your healthy school lunches.
