Save 196.25 on 2/24

There is $196.25 worth of savings this week in The Blade. We will be receiving 1 SS (Smart Source), 1 RMN (Retail me Not), and 1 P&G – so excited!! Many of these coupons pair nicely with the current Kroger Mega Event running through Tuesday, 3/5!

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.

I just LOVE when we can snag some FREEBIES! I always tell people, if you wait, you can always get FREE toothpaste. When this happens, it is also a great time to donate back to our community. Many people are not aware that SNAP is just for food items, so the hygienic items are an additional cost to people who are already struggling. It is such a blessing to those struggling to go to a food bank/pantry and be able to pick up these items. We have so many wonderful charities to donate to in our community. Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if everyone reading the paper today would use the Crest coupon and pick up a FREE tube of toothpaste and give back to our community? Super cool trickle effect we could have to show how far a little kindness can go.

We have a pretty sweet spot in our hearts for the Ronald McDonald House. Two years ago, our son, Jonah, underwent open heart surgery. He had a very rare heart condition (only 6th in the world with his condition) and we know first-hand that the Ronald McDonald House is a great charity. They help families that have to be away from home. We would like to give a special shout out to Dr. Suarez, Jonah’s cardiologist, as well as the surgeons and cardiologists at the University of Michigan for taking such great care of our son. He is back to playing soccer at full strength and we appreciate all the diligence of all of the physicians that were, and still are, involved in his care.

What are you doing on Thursday mornings? Say like 8 am. . . Be sure to listen to 101.5 The River as I will be on with Rick giving the best deals of the week and of course using my “coupon voice”. It truly is easier than many of us think. Pick one item each week to use a coupon with and BAM before you know it, you will have this whole couponing thing down to a T!! 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 – 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 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 $5 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 $196.25 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!!
