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)
Final Price: $1.99 each

Colgate Toothpaste – $1.99
Use $1/1 coupon from SS insert
Final Price: $0.99 each

Here are a few of my other favorite coupons:

· $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.

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”. I get SO excited to share the deals with all of you. I always give a detailed breakdown of each deal I talk about. I will save you over $20 weekly if you purchase all the deals I mention 😊 That’s money in your pocket!!
