Yes, it is today if you forgot, so you still have time to go out and get mom that extra special gift or take her out for a nice meal, but be sure to acknowledge her today.

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. .

If you are still paying full price for items, why not take some extra time today and take a few coupons and save BIG? You may be surprised just how easy it is, plus just how much FUN you will have! All the cool people coupon – Just Kidding, BUT most of us do LOL 😉

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.

This shopping scenario contains bath tissue, paper towels, laundry detergent, pasta, fruit snacks, and so much more.

The next thing I knew our son was in my office asking me where dad went. My husband left and headed to soccer practice without our son. How many of you have done something similar? I was going to let him go and see how far he got before he realized he didn’t have our son, but since practice is an hour away, up in Livonia, MI, I thought I better not do that, LOL 😊

Save $256.05 on 3.16.18

There is $256.05 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 1 SS (Smart Source) and 2 RP (RedPlum). Many of the coupons will pair nicely with the upcoming Kroger Mega Event that will be starting on Wednesday, March 21 and running for two weeks. Seriously, I must ask, how many of you are excited?!

This Mega Event is a buy 6, save $3 instantly. As with any Kroger Mega Event you do not have to purchase 6 of the same items, just have to purchase in multiples of 6 of participating products.

You all know I love the Kroger Mega Events as this truly is a time that we can stock up on products we use every day. In addition, because we are saving so much, it is a great time to give back to our community. So many things that many of us take for granted like washing our hair, brushing our teeth, or washing our clothes, is a luxury to many families that are struggling financially. Did you know these types of items are not covered on food assistance cards? For this reason, many have to decide which items are more important to purchase. This is a time when we, as a community, can stand in the gap and give someone struggling a hand up (not a handout). Who knows we may be in that same position sometime.

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 put together a Kroger Mega Event shopping scenario 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!!
