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.

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!! I have also been sharing many awesome holiday deals. You still have plenty of time to save BIG on those purchases.

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!

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 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 $37 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!!
