I would like everyone to remember that the need for food increases with summer as there are so many children out of school. If you are able, I would love to challenge all of you to donate some extra food items and HBA products to some of your local food banks. Even if you can only donate one item, please know that could be a huge blessing for someone who is in need. Don’t think of it as a hand out, but rather a hand up. Let’s start encouraging one another and standing in the gap when others need help.

Do you ever find yourself burned out? Tired? Just feeling overwhelmed? Well, I just recently did and was able to step back for a few weeks. It felt so good to just have some rest and relaxation.

I have taken a few weeks off as stated above, but I’m BACK!! What are you doing on Thursday mornings? Say around 8 am? Be sure to listen to 101.5 The River as I will be on with Rick giving the best deals of the week and of course using my “coupon voice”. You can even listen from the IHeartRadio app from anywhere. I challenge all of you to pick one deal each week, use that coupon and BAM before you know it, you will have this whole couponing thing down to a T. Plus, before long, you will have a small stockpile started!! I will save you over $20 weekly if you purchase all the deals I mention 😊 That’s money in your pocket!!

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!!

I strongly 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!

I would like to wish all of you a Happy Mother’s Day. Being a mother is one of the greatest gifts I was ever blessed with. We have 7 children and 1 granddaughter. Three very special mothers blessed us through adoption. I would like to take this time to thank them for that precious gift. We cannot imagine our lives without them.

I hope today involves much relaxation for all of you busy moms. We always work in the yard and plant flowers on Mother’s Day. I am trying to talk all of the kids into helping me start a garden this year. We shall see if they will take me up on it LOL 😊

I have a lot of people ask me what they can do with the coupons they know they will not use. Many of our local libraries have places that you can drop off your coupons. It’s an easy way to share the savings with others and who knows, maybe you will be lucky and be able to find some coupons for the items you purchase. It really is a WIN/WIN!!

4/21/19 Savings

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE – In observation of the holiday there are no coupon inserts, but we will be receiving $2 worth of coupons for Steak N Shake and $11 worth of coupons to Rite Aid. I truly hope you all enjoy some family time and have a delicious meal. I always love seeing all the little kids dressed up in their Easter Outfits at church and all the laughter of the kids searching for the hidden Easter eggs. We have such an awesome community with so many FREE Easter Egg Hunts and other events for the kids. I have so many wonderful childhood memories as I am sure you all do too 😊

I also want to give a BIG shout out to my husband, Jamie, who turns 50 on Tuesday the 23rd. Be sure if you see him out and about to wish him a Happy Birthday.

Since there are no coupons today, this is a great time to go through all your old inserts and get rid of all the expired coupons. Did you know that you can send your expired coupons to the military overseas? They can use expired coupons up to six months old. Many of the legion halls will accept them or you can visit coupsfortroops.com and they will match you with a family to send your expired coupons to. This is such a cool way to help our military families and puts our expired coupons to good use.

Also, a reminder that the Kroger Mega Event is still going on through Tuesday, April 23. There are many great deals. The Kroger Mega Event is always a great time to stock up on items. There are a few items that are a great deal without coupons.

· $0.49 Green Giant Canned Vegetables
· $0.49 Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom or Chicken Soup
· $0.49 Creamette Pasta

All 3 of these items are stock up deals and no coupons are needed. Many of our recipes call for these items so I ALWAYS stock up when I can snag them for only $0.49!! Plus, they have a very long shelf life which makes it even better 😊

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. When we can get items for FREE or cheap why not share with those less fortunate than us?

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!!

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.

I would like to send my deepest sympathizes to the Boyle family on the passing of their dad, Bill. I had the privilege of taking care of Bill for over 6 months. He read this segment every week. When I would show up on Monday mornings, he would have this section out for me. I am sad that he will no longer read this or have it ready for me on Monday. I sure will miss him, but I have many wonderful memories that we shared. He was a great guy who I adored and loved dearly.

I love to make up care packages and put in Easter Baskets that we give to some of the homeless shelters. This is such an easy way to give back to our community.

I also want to remind you all about the great deal on Huggies Diapers. If you missed it last week, Kroger has a “Double Dip” on catalinas for Huggies Diapers. You can get an instant $10 off when you spend $40 (before coupons) and a $5 when you spend $20. You could purchase 5 packages of Huggies diapers and 1 package of Huggies Wipes. After the $1.50/1 coupon (use 5 of them) and the 2 catalinas, you can snag them for only $3.74/package. I know this seems complicated, but I have it all broken down on my blog, FreeTastesGood.com.

I just LOVE when we can snag some FREEBIES! I always tell people, if you wait, you can always get FREE toothpaste. When this happens, it is also a great time to donate back to our community. Many people are not aware that SNAP is just for food items, so the hygienic items are an additional cost to people who are already struggling. It is such a blessing to those struggling to go to a food bank/pantry and be able to pick up these items. We have so many wonderful charities to donate to in our community. Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if everyone reading the paper today would use the Crest coupon and pick up a FREE tube of toothpaste and give back to our community? Super cool trickle effect we could have to show how far a little kindness can go.

We have a pretty sweet spot in our hearts for the Ronald McDonald House. Two years ago, our son, Jonah, underwent open heart surgery. He had a very rare heart condition (only 6th in the world with his condition) and we know first-hand that the Ronald McDonald House is a great charity. They help families that have to be away from home. We would like to give a special shout out to Dr. Suarez, Jonah’s cardiologist, as well as the surgeons and cardiologists at the University of Michigan for taking such great care of our son. He is back to playing soccer at full strength and we appreciate all the diligence of all of the physicians that were, and still are, involved in his care.

What are you doing on Thursday mornings? Say like 8 am. . . Be sure to listen to 101.5 The River as I will be on with Rick giving the best deals of the week and of course using my “coupon voice”. It truly is easier than many of us think. Pick one item each week to use a coupon with and BAM before you know it, you will have this whole couponing thing down to a T!! I will save you over $20 weekly if you purchase all the deals I mention 😊 That’s money in your pocket!!

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!!

I strongly 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!

Just the coupons I mentioned above total over $5 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 $196.25 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 $17 on 2/17

There is $17 worth of savings this week in The Blade. Yes, you read that right. . . that seems so odd to type $17. Even with only $17 you won’t be disappointed if you have any shopping to do. We have a $10/$25 purchase at Macy’s. With the current President’s Day Sales going on, you will be able to pair that coupon with some pretty AWESOME deals. You can still snag some winter clearance (sweaters, coats, etc.) as all the summer clothes are on the racks now.

Since we are not receiving many coupons, I would recommend going through your old coupons and get rid of all the expired ones. As always, remember our military overseas can use the expired coupons up to six months after the expiration date, so find a family that you can bless.

How many of you are like my family where you celebrate Valentine’s Day the weekend after so we can save over 50% off of many of those items? It’s just another day right?! Seriously, would you expect anything else from me, the lady who LOVES to save money? Just makes sense to me to wait a few extra days after the 14th to be able to save BIG! I load up on the Valentine’s Day Candy and use it for Easter baskets also LOL 😊 Yes, I really do and you should too!
