Save $57 on 7.13.18

There is $57 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 1 Retail Me Not (formerly known as RedPlum). These items align nicely with the Kroger Mega Event which runs through Tuesday, June 24th. This is a buy 5, save $5 instantly and will be a great time to stock up on many products. Remember, you don’t have to purchase 5 of the same products, you only have to purchase in quantities of 5 of participating products.

The Kroger Mega Event is also a great time to pick up extra items and donate to our local food pantries or homeless shelters. Also, remember many of our local schools have washers and dryers for some of the students to use.

Here are a few of my favorite Kroger Deals:

Tide Simply Laundry Detergent – $2.97
Use $1/1 coupon from RMN insert

If you have a one still in diapers, there are many awesome deals on Huggies, Luvs, and Pampers, plus Comfort Baby Wipes for as low as $0.24. If you don’t have a little one, why not give back to one of the pregnancy centers or Heartbeat of Toledo?

Also, if you have coupons from the last few weeks, you can pick up Charmin Bath Tissue for ONLY $3.99 and Bounty Paper Towels for ONLY $3.99. These items NEVER go bad and as we all know, paper products are usually expensive. The retail for both of these products is $9.99 so you – so that is a BARGAIN!!

Be sure to listen to 101.5 The River on Thursday mornings at 8 a.m. as I will be on with Rick giving the best deals of the week and sometimes sharing some funny family stories and of course using my “coupon voice”. I will also give a detailed breakdown of how to get each deal that I talk about. I usually will save you over $20 for products most of us will use on a daily basis.

If you are skeptical about couponing, I ask that you try it one week and see how easy it really is. I mean seriously, I am doing all the work for you, all you have to do is go to the store 😊 Even if you save $10 a week at the grocery store, in a year’s time, you will have saved $520. That’s a huge savings and a nice chunk of change to use on something else.

There are also MANY printable coupons that you can print from freetastesgood.com – just go to the website and then click on the printable coupons dropdown box. Print those coupons and BAM you will save $1, $2, or so much more!!

Each week I encourage you to pick up extra papers and save BIG. You will save a TON on things you buy and use every day. Did you know if you already subscribe to the Blade, you can pick up additional Sunday papers for ONLY $1? Visit freetastesgood.com and I will show you how!

Don’t pay full price, let us show you how to save with the Blade’s weekly coupons. Follow us daily on the Blade Plus FB page and the blog and/or visit us also on

Just the coupons I mentioned above total over $9 in savings and that is only a few of the many coupons that we will be receiving this week. This is a great week to pick up a few EXTRA papers!! It really is that easy. Go to the store, take your coupons, and BAM you will be saving each week on things you already purchase.

The paper pays for itself when you take advantage of the $57 in savings this week. Go out and have some fun, but most importantly save money right here weekly in The Toledo Blade where Saving Money with Joni makes Cents!!

Save $122.95 on 7.6.18

There is $112.95 worth of savings this week in the Toledo Blade. We will be receiving 1 RMN (Retail Me Not) and 1 SmartSource. There are so many fantastic coupons especially since we have another Kroger Mega Event beginning Wednesday, July 11 through July 24. You all know this is when I get really excited and my “coupon voice” goes into full swing.

This is a great time to stock up on many items that you use every day. It doesn’t take much to save a LOT during these events.

I have also put together a Kroger Shopping Scenario that you can get over $300 in retail for under $130. All of these products are stuff the majority of us use daily and especially in the summertime.

The $0.50/1 Colgate Toothpaste coupon can be used at either Dollar Tree or Kroger to snag toothpaste for only $0.50. I always say you can ALWAYS get toothpaste for FREE, but if you are just starting $0.50 is a good price too J

Here are a few of my other favorite coupons:

· $0.80/1 PureSilk Shaving Cream
· $1/3 General Mills Cereal
· $0.50/2 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks
· $0.50/1 Colgate Toothpaste
· $14 worth of Clairol Hair Color.

In addition, we have over $9 in Boston Market, $7 in Red Lobster, and $3 in Steak N Shake. I LOVE how many restaurant coupons we receive in the summer. I think they know that many of us don’t like to cook in this HOT heat.

People often ask me why I don’t do matchups for the hair color products so I am going to share. My husband, Jamie’s, moustache was starting to turn grey and our older kids were giving him a hard time. So one day he decided to use some color on it to get rid of the gray. He thought it looked good, but I am here to tell you it turned auburn (red). It was so noticeable. He looked like he had a big bushy cat’s tail on his face LOLJ So because of that, I don’t usually share those deals, because I am afraid he will see it and run out and get some more and try it again. On a positive note, those that do like to color their own hair can use those $14 worth of Clairol coupons to snag hair color for FREE to cheap.

We see so much negativity in the news and online, but through couponing we truly can impact many lives in such a positive way. You just never know how much it may impact and bless someone’s life.

As always, I will continue to put together Kroger Shopping Scenarios to help all you Newbies out 😊 It will be step-by-step instructions. This will show you, just how easy it is to coupon and how much money you can save. I am confident you will never go back to paying full price once you start couponing.

Also, be sure to listen to 101.5 The River on Thursday mornings at 8 a.m. as I will be on with Rick giving the best deals of the week and sometimes sharing some funny family stories, including many about my husband, Jamie (but before I share I always get permission from him) He is a good sport and also has many stories to share about me J

I do want to take a moment to wish all you dads or men that have stepped up to take the role of the “dad” a Happy Father’s Day. This is not just about birth fathers but any man that has stepped up and loved and taken care of a child. We have 7 children and I know our kids are blessed to have my husband, Jamie, as their father. Our kids are looking up to us parents as their role models and I am glad my kids have the dad they do to be their role model. I would also like to say a special Happy Father’s Day to my father-in-law, Tom Crothers, whom we love dearly. I am truly blessed to call him my father-in-law, but I don’t think I will be taking him couponing for Father’s Day lol 😊

Happy Memorial Day!

There are no coupons in this week’s Blade due to the holiday weekend. Memorial Day is a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered. Many of us observe it by having a cookout and/or time with our families. I remember this as the weekend that my parents would always open our pool and I think many of the area pools will open this weekend. However you celebrate it, I hope you make great memories with your family and friends.

On the weekends that we do not receive any coupon inserts, I spend time getting rid of my expired coupons. Did you know that you can send expired coupons (up to 6 months) to our miliary overseas. Also, some of our local legion halls accept them and send them to the military. It is an easy way to give back to those protecting our country.

There are many sales at Meijer and Kroger on hot dogs, hamburgers, condiments, fresh fruits, etc because it is the beginning of cookout season. I bet you didn’t know “cookout” was a season did you 😊?

Do any of you have any favorite summer recipes for cookouts or family gatherings? We have a jalapeno dip that everyone loves – it isn’t too “hot”, but has enough flavor that it is always a BIG hit at any gathering we have. Visit my blog freetastesgood.com and share your favorite recipes or browse some of our recipes under the “awesome recipes” tab.

It’s time to kick back, fire up those grills, and get cookin 😊. So often we get so busy with daily life, that we forget to be in the “moment”. If you’re like Jamie (my husband) and me, we need to just slow down and enjoy what is right in front of us. This is always a great weekend to make fantastic memories that will last a lifetime. Some of my favorite memories are around the bonfire; especially when I throw food in the fire because I have no self-control. I have been known to throw a bag of Cheetos in the fire so I didn’t eat the whole bag. Can anyone else relate?! We set the everyday chores, worries, stress aside and take a day to just enjoy life and all the blessings we have in front of us.

Also, the MudHens are home tonight and tomorrow. It is always a great time to go to a MudHens game, especially with nice weather forecasted. If you go, be sure to look for our son who is working on the grounds crew. He LOVES being a part of the MudHens’ Family.

If you are still paying full price for items, why not take some extra time today and check out our website at freetastesgood.com and save BIG? You may be surprised how easy it is and how much FUN you will have! All the cool people coupon – Just Kidding, BUT most of us do LOL 😉

Do you have any family traditions for Mother’s Day? A survey revealed most moms want a quiet day and to wake up to a clean house. I am not about the quiet day – we have 7 kids so our house has NEVER been quiet. I LOVE when all our kids are home and hearing all the laughter in our house. That brings me great joy! We usually have a family cookout and the day always involves soccer and this year is no different. Today will be extra special, because I will get to spend some time with our granddaughter. I may also add some excitement and have all of our kids go couponing with me!

An extra special Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. Also, a Happy Mother’s Day to all those birth moms that allowed families like mine to adopt. We have been blessed by 3 different birth moms blessing us with 4 precious children. I treasure being a mom as I know many of you do. May today be a wonderful day for all of you. Cherish all these precious moments you are given with your families. .

The paper pays for itself when you take advantage of the $227.15 in savings this week. Go out and have some fun, but most importantly save money right here weekly in The Toledo Blade where Saving Money with Joni makes Cents!!

Also, the next Kroger Mega Event will be starting Tuesday, May 9 and run through Tuesday, May 22nd. This is a buy 4, save $4 instantly and will be a great time to stock up on many products. Remember, you don’t have to purchase 4 of the same products, you only have to purchase in quantities of 4 of participating products.

Here are a few of my favorite Kroger Deals for the upcoming sale:

We also have $15 worth of coupons to Max & Erma’s and $10/$50 at Kohl’s. This makes for the perfect Mother’s Day Deal – go purchase your mom a gift and take her out for lunch or dinner on Mother’s Day next weekend. My family’s tradition for Mother’s Day is to have our kids all come over and help me plant flowers and cookout, but this year we will be at our son’s soccer game for most of the day. I guess that makes for a great Mother’s Day, right?! Plus I get to spend some time with my granddaughter.

I still have the Kroger Shopping Scenario that continues through this Tuesday. You can purchase over $250 worth of products for under $100. This shopping scenario contains bath tissue, paper towels, laundry detergent, pasta, fruit snacks, and so much more. You will see that with using coupons, you will get name-brand products, cheaper than generic products. That is the coolest part about couponing – items that you used to think were expensive, you will be able to purchase for cheap and sometimes even FREE!

Be sure to listen to 101.5 The River on Thursday mornings at 8 a.m. as I will be on with Rick giving the best deals of the week and sometimes sharing some funny family stories!! I will also give a detailed breakdown of how to get each deal that I talk about.

I also want to give a special shout out to my good friend, Bill, who I know reads this segment every Sunday morning. He is a special friend whom I love dearly. Happy Sunday, Bill 😊

There is $273.60 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 1 SS (Smart Source), 1 Retail Me Not (formerly known as RedPlum), and 1 P&G. You all know by now I LOVE the P&G. They are always filled with items we use every day.

Use $2/1 coupon from P&G insert
Final Price: $3.99 each wyb 2

Our family LOVES Tide and we always stock up when it is on sale. This is a good time to get those additional Sunday Blade subscription for ONLY $1! It pays for itself with all the coupons in each Sunday’s papers.

Here are a few of my other FAVORITE coupons that will pair nicely with upcoming sales at Meijer and Kroger.

· $5/3 Pantene Products

· $1/1 Crest Toothpaste

In addition, we have $12 worth of Olive Garden Coupons. What’s your favorite meal at Olive Garden? I love to go for the unlimited soup, salad and of course the unlimited breadsticks. Breadsticks themselves can be considered a meal right 😉?

I mentioned last week, that in the next few weeks we will start seeing more coupons for condiments, hotdogs, etc. All of these coupons will pair nicely with the upcoming Memorial Day Sales at both Meijer and Kroger. The shelf life on most of these products is a year, so I say stock up while you can get them for FREE/cheap. Remember, you NEVER want to pay full price for anything.

I have also put together a Kroger Shopping Scenario this week. You can purchase over $250 worth of products for under $100. This shopping scenario contains bath tissue, paper towels, laundry detergent, pasta, fruit snacks, and so much more.

I want to thank everyone that came out and helped make our FREE Laundry Day a great success at Super Suds Laundromat at 3509 W. Alexis Road in Toledo. We had a great turnout and washed and dried 100’s of loads of laundry. This is such a cool way to give back to our community and help those families that truly need a hand up. Don’t ever discount the smallness of any gift, because it does impact lives and does make a difference.
