Consumers are searching for ways to make their dollars go farther and couponing can result in significant savings.

  • We visited friends in Boulder, Colo., over the Christmas holiday and had an opportunity to visit the Celestial Seasonings Tea Company that is headquartered there. In fact, this one factory produces all of their tea sold worldwide.  
    Celestial Tea had humble beginnings with a group of “passionate young entrepreneurs” (i.e hippies in 1969), who began collecting herbs from the slopes of the Rocky Mountains and crafted their own herbal teas to sell to local health food stores.
