Save $172.60 on 3/17/19

There is $172.60 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 1 SS (Smart Source) and 1 RMN (Retail Me Not).

There are some AWESOME coupons this week, but right now they don’t pair with a sale, but you all know we will be having another Kroger Mega Event really soon, right? So, you are going to want to clip them and get them ready! We are talking FREE Colgate Toothpaste again.

BUT before we get to that excitement, how many of you picked up your cheap Tide last week? Or a better question, how many of you already used your whole bottle, LOL 😊

Here are a few of my other favorite coupons that will pair with the Kroger Mega Event:

· $1/1 General Mills cereal
· $0.50/2 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Products
· $1.25/1 Tropicana Kids Organic Juice
· $2/1 Colgate Toothpaste – FREE TOOTHPASTE AGAIN!!
· $2/1 Colgate 360 Toothbrush
· $0.55/2 Mueller’s Pasta
· $4/2 Tresemme Pro Collection
· $2/2 TreSemme Shampoo and/or Conditioner
· $1/1 Crest Toothpaste

With the $2/1 Colgate Toothpaste, we will be able to snag a FREE tube of toothpaste again with the next Kroger Mega Event. Remember, I always say, don’t pay for toothpaste. If you are patient, you can always get it for FREE.

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. It truly is not that complicated – I promise 😊 and that is a HUGE savings for anyone who has kids still in diapers.

What are you doing on Thursday mornings at 8 a.m.? If you are not busy, be sure to tune in 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’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!!

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!!

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!

What are you doing on Thursday mornings? Be sure to listen to 101.5 The River at 8 a.m. as I will be on with Rick giving the best deals of the week and of course using my “coupon voice”.

Save $116.50 on 2/3

There is $116.50 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 1 SS (Smart Source) and 1 RMN (Retail me Not). Many of these coupons pair nicely with the current Kroger Mega Event running through Tuesday, 2/5!

This Kroger Mega Event is a Buy 6, Save $3 instantly. Remember, you do not have to purchase 5 of the same items, you just need to purchase in quantities of 6 of participating products, i.e. items that are included in the Mega Event.

Here are a few of my favorite Kroger Deals:

Aussie Shampoo or Conditioner – $2.29
Use $2/2 coupon from RMN insert
Final Price: $1.29 each

Tide Laundry Detergent – $4.99
Use $3/1 coupon from SS insert (if included)

· $1/1 All Laundry Detergent
· $0.50/1 Snuggle Product

The Kroger Mega Events are the best for those of us that coupon. Not only are the sales amazing, but when you pair those sale items with coupons, you can snag some pretty AWESOME deals.

They have some pretty great filler items too if you need to reach the 6 items. The individual mac & cheese cups are only $0.49. These make for easy lunches for the kids. We have also used these to make up food care packages for the Ronald McDonald House. We put in the individual mac & cheese, an applesauce, granola bar, and a water bottle. You can put whatever you want in them, but this blesses the families so much. They can go to the hospital and visit their kids and have a FREE lunch to take with them.

We know this first-hand as our son, Jonah, had open heart surgery two years ago at Mott’s Children’s Hospital and eating in the cafeteria adds up quickly. It’s the small things like this that can really impact a family that is struggling already. Nobody wants their child to be sick so a small care package can put a smile on their face. #KindnessAlwaysWins

Now since we have all survived that terrible cold spell we just had, it feels like spring with the temperature today 😊 I love teaching you all how to save money on a weekly basis, but I also hope you also take the time to help those less fortunate in our community. With this cold spell, we took some blankets out to the homeless and hand warmers. We have done these things, because we want our kids to know we should always be looking for opportunities to give a hand up to those who are struggling. We don’t’ know their story, but if we feel prompted to help, we should.

Final Price: $0.33

Colgate Toothbrush- $0.88
Use $0.50/1 coupon from SS insert

The coupons also mentioned below will pair nicely with the next Kroger Mega Event:

· $1/1 Wonderful Pistachios coupon
· $0.50/1 Wonderful Pistachios coupon
· $1/1 SuperPretzel coupon
· $1/1 Irish Spring Body Wash coupon
· $0.50/1 Palmolive Coupon

In addition, we will be receiving over $21 in Purina coupons. This would be a great time to help one of our local animal shelters. When we can purchase products at such a discount it is a great time to give back. Many of these shelters count on the donations from our community.

How are all of you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions? I will admit my New Year’s Resolution was to lose weight. I started out strong and lost 8 pounds, but then . . . well, I started eating those wonderful pistachios and chips (yes, chips are my downfall). I even tried to throw all the chips away in our house. But Guess what? I ended up at the store buying more lol 😊 And pistachios, well those things are SO addicting. I remember in the day eating the red pistachios that turned your fingers red. It made it tougher to sneak them without leaving the evidence. The new and improved wonderful pistachios make it much easier to sneak them. It seems every time I try to sneak them though, I get busted. I’ve even tried to hide from everyone in the house and still get caught!!

I would also like to wish my Father-in-Law, Tom Crothers, a very happy birthday on Tuesday. He is a great dad, father-in-law, and grandpa and we love him to pieces. We are very blessed to have him as a part of our lives. If you see him out and about, be sure to wish him a Happy Birthday.

Save $13.50 on 12/23

There is $13.50 worth of savings this week in The Blade. Here is what we will be receiving

· $10/50 Kohl’s Purchase
· $3.50/$15 Ulta Purchase

These are two AWESOME coupons for last minute Christmas (Hanukah/holiday) shopping. I can always find something at Kohl’s to purchase. Can any of you relate to that? That’s one of my favorite stores!!

Since we will not be receiving many coupons this week, this is a good time to sort through old expired coupons and get rid of them. Remember, you can donate them to most VFW Halls or coupsfortroops and they will see that the expired coupons get to our military overseas. The military, overseas, can use expired coupons up to six months after the expiration date. This is a good way to bless them and it doesn’t cost us anything.

This week is one of my favorite weeks. A lot of last minute traditions we do as a family from going to the Lights Before Christmas at the Zoo, taking in a move on Christmas Eve, and baking cut out cookies with the kids and grandkids. I am big on traditions as I think memories will always outlast any gift our children or families will ever receive from us. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and enjoy family time 😊

We served well over 500 people at our FREE Community Christmas dinner at St. Lucas Church last Sunday and gave out 79 toys to kids. Thank you to all of you that donated and came out an volunteered.

Save $37 on 12/16

There is $37 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving coupons for Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kohls, Food Town, and Steak N Shake. This is a nice addition since many of us will be out doing some Christmas shopping.

If you are still Christmas shopping, which I’m sure many of you are, here are a few coupons that you may want to use:

· $15/$50 Bed, Bath, and Beyond Purchase
· $10/$50 Fine and Silver Jewelry Purchase

These are two of my favorite places to shop. At Bed, Bath, & Beyond, you can always find the latest and greatest gadgets. Actually, my husband, Jamie, probably loves this store more than I do. He goes in scouring for the coolest, new gadgets and comes home to try them out LOL 😊

I hope all of you are taking the time to really enjoy this holiday season. We spend so much time trying to find the PERFECT gift, but the PERFECT gift is just being present in others’ lives. We were able to celebrate Christmas with our older children and our granddaughter on Saturday and got family pictures taken. My heat is so full of joy. Just watching Christmas through the eyes of a child is priceless. The innocence and excitement and the joy of making lasting family memories with them is so enjoyable. Making cutout cookies and flour everywhere (makes for a huge mess), but knowing the grandchildren will be grown before we know it, so just enjoying the laughter and excitement and knowing the mess can be cleaned up.

We have started many new Christmas traditions over the last few years. Our families will remember the time we spent together and memories we made more than any gift we could give. We all need to slow down and be in the moment. Not worrying about the next thing we have to do.

Today, we will be serving a FREE Community Christmas dinner at St. Lucas Church at 745 Walbridge Street in Toledo from 4-5 pm today – ALL ARE WELCOME!! There will be a visit from Santa who will be handing out gifts to children 10 and under (while supplies last). We will be serving ham, mashed potatoes, and all the fixings; plus some pretty amazing desserts.

Just the coupons I mentioned above total over $25 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 $219.20 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 $219.20 on 12/9

There is $219.20 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 1 SS (Smart Source) and 1 RMN (Retail me Not). Many of these coupons pair nicely with the current Kroger Mega Event running through Tuesday, 12/11!

This Kroger Mega Event is a Buy 5, Save $5 instantly. Remember, you do not have to purchase 5 of the same items, you just need to purchase in quantities of 5 of participating products, i.e. items that are included in the Mega Event.

Here are a few of my favorite Kroger Deals:

Crest Toothpaste – $1.99
Use $1/1 coupon from RMN insert
Final Price: $0.99

Keebler Toll House Crackers – $1.49
Use $1/2 coupon from RMN insert
Final Price: $0.99 each wyb 2

If you are still Christmas shopping, which I’m sure many of you are, Target has two AWESOME coupons:

· $10/$50 game purchase
· $25/$100 game purchase

That’s a 20% and a 25% savings. We always make up a game bag/box for our kids for Christmas Eve night and sit around watching the Hallmark Channel and playing games. Honestly, I may be the only one watching the Hallmark Channel as everyone else in my family have had enough LOL😊

W also have several restaurant coupons including the following:

· $12 at Bob Evans
· $4 at Steak N Shake
· $11 at Honeybaked Ham

These restaurant coupons are perfect for grabbing a bite to eat in the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping. Plus, you can grab a Honeybaked Ham just in time for that Christmas Dinner.

I hope all of you are taking the time to really enjoy this holiday season. So often, we get so busy with the hustle and bustle and finding the PERFECT gift, but the perfect give is just being PRESENT! Our kids and families will not remember all the gifts they received, but they will have fond memories of Christmas because of the memories that we make as a family by just being there. We have really slowed down this Christmas and I actually have all our presents wrapped already so now I can just sit back and enjoy the decorations, baking cookies, and I LOVE watching the Hallmark Channel; even if I have seen most of the shows several times 😊

I would like to wish our son, Jonah, a Happy 15th Birthday. He has overcome a lot in life already and actually had open heart surgery almost 2 years ago at the age of 13. We are extra thankful every year for this gift we were given. Happy Birthday Jonah! We love you!

I have also been talking about many holiday deals, i.e. Keurigs, weighted blankets, vacuums, sheets, toys, and so much more.

If you are blessed this year with an overabundance be sure to pass the blessing on and share with others. There are so many charities currently taking donations to give families gifts that are struggling this year. One of my favorite charities is Blessings in Disguise. This was the organization that paid off several Walmart Layaways a few years back. They also do a lot for the elderly in our community.
