My apologies that matchups were not posted this week. I had a previous commitment that demanded my ultimate attention this week & only had a few minutes each day to get on the computer. Yay for next week though! I will be able to devote much needed time to the matchups & can't wait. Thankfully, lots of items for Meijer's were store items that normally doesn't have coupons. Also, if you are still looking for some matchups checkout Mrs. penny pincher here for Krogers this week.

Also, if you have not checked out your local target stores tons of items on markdown. Too many to list. Happy Shopping & Savings!

TGI Fridays Perk rewards(sign up for free & get free stuff)

My husband was going to be eating at TGI Fridays today with some co-workers. So being the wonderful couponing wife I am I took it upon myself to look for some deals. I first located their website and saw their awesome perks card registration. Totally free & they had a link to print your temporary reward card. Along with the registration, you receive a Free Appetizer or Dessert(email, but I think you can use the temporary pass with date of being printed to get the free item-I'm hoping it does b/c the email didn't come through before he left). Also, you receive a JUMP THE LINE pass which just like it sounds allows you to jump the front of the line just by showing your card! Now that is a perk my family can enjoy in a crowded restaurant! You will also receive emails with updates & other perks!

Couponing tips

1. Don't be afraid to send a manufacturer a letter or email telling them what you like or don't like about their product. I have received numerous coupons in the mail & email to either say Thank you for my comments or to assure me(when I've had a bad comment) that things will be done to improve their reputation with me as a consumer. I've even had some to send me coupons for a free products. Now that's ultimate reward savings there!

2. Visit restaurant websites like to sign up for newsletters. They even had a special of a B1G1 Free entree in a recent email or link on their website. Most also have really awesome birthday perks like sign up for their newsletter & receive an email to print for a birthday meal from them(not including drink). Also, sign up your children in groups too. Why pay more money on their birthday when you don't have too!

3. Places like also have birthday perks. You receive a free gift(no purchase necessary) for your birthday(most you have to get during your birthday month, & some you have to get it within 2 weeks of your birthday).

4. Take your time. Learning how to coupon smart takes time. I've been couponing since marrying, but only recently really started to LEARN how to coupon to save even more a little over a year.

5. Don't forget to ask for rainchecks if an item is not in stock, or ask the manager if they have a substitution for the item. I've asked this several times & received the more expensive, better product for the sale price of the item that was out of stock.

Last, but not least. Have a blessed life and savings!

Graco Stroller Recall due to finger lacerations or amputations

Graco announced a recall on certain stroller models because of reports of fingertip lacerations, and amputations. I feel as a mom myself I needed to pass this information along. Also, if you would like recall information you can register to receive emails or even mail from the CPSC just visit to sign up for the email list of recalls. It's free & it's totally worth it.
