Save $95 on 12.2.18

There is $95 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:

In addition, we have several restaurant coupons including the following:

These restaurant coupons are perfect for grabbing a bite to eat in the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping.

This is truly my favorite time of year. I have so many fond memories of my childhood and how my parents made our Christmas so special; not with gifts but memories of spending time together with family. I LOVE sharing many of these traditions with our kids and now our granddaughter. We started a new tradition of 25 days of Christmas Books, where for 25 days (beginning December 1st) she will have a new book to open. This will consciously give her mom and dad a time to slow down each night and read to her. We often get caught up in the gift giving and just the busyness of shopping and forgetting to slow down and enjoy the time we can spend together. We need to be more cognizant and make memories that will last a lifetime.

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 talking about many holiday deals, i.e. Keurigs, weighted blankets, vacuums, sheets, 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.

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!

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 $95 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!!
