Save $232.25 on 8.3.18

There is $232.25 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 3 Retail Me Not (formerly known as RedPlum), 2 SS (Smart Source). This week is like the lottery of coupons 😊 So many high-value coupons that pair nicely with the current sale at Kroger, plus some back to school coupons.

You can NEVER have too much laundry detergent, right?! Many of the schools in Toledo and surrounding take donations for laundry detergent and toothpaste. We have 2 amazing deals on toothpaste, one will even be FREE 😊 Yes, you read that right, FREE!! That means get some for your family and then pass the blessing on to others. How cool would it be if everyone picked up one extra item and donated to our community. Clean clothes and clean teeth for everyone in Toledo and surrounding areas 😊

Talking about back to school – how many of you are taking advantage of the tax-free weekend that ends tonight at 11:59 PM? During the holiday or tax-free weekend, the following items are exempt from sales and use tax:

· Clothing priced at $75 per item or less;
· School supplies priced at $20 per item or less; and
· School instructional material priced at $20 per item or less.
This is the third year and this saving adds up quickly. In addition, most of the stores have additional savings to get you into their store so if you are able, take advantage of this Tax-Free Weekend and have some fun with your kids 😊 There are a few Kohls coupons that pair nicely with this event:

· Save $10/$50 Kohls purchase on Back to School Items
· Save $10/$40 Kohls purchase on Men’s Basics

This makes for a great time to get those items and maximize your savings with the tax-free weekend in addition to coupons 😊 Who doesn’t love saving mone?!

Have you also noticed all the stores have their school supplies out? Before you know it, they will be putting out Christmas stuff LOL!! In addition, Office Max/Office Depot has a ton of great weekly deals including their $0.25 deals. Each week I put a shopping scenario together of school supplies to save you and your family money, plus allowing everyone to pick up a few extra items to donate to one of the many Back to School Projects. If you follow all the weekly deals, you should be able to fill each backpack (excluding the dreaded calculator) for around $10! What are some of your favorite memories for back to school? How many of you used the paper grocery bags for your book covers? We didn’t have all that fancy smancy stuff.

I have put together another Kroger Shopping Scenario. You will get over $300 in retail for under $100. That includes 10 bottles of laundry detergent and many other every day items we use. I have step-by-step instructions making it super easy 😊

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 of course using my “coupon voice”. 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!!

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
FB at FreeTastesGood. Let us do all the work for you. It’s like putting extra money in the bank.

Just the coupons I mentioned above total $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 $232.25 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!!
