Fru-Gal Update March 1

I want to take a minute to talk about combining digital coupons and paper coupons. All the deals I sent to you guys yesterday, I did test out at Krogers and they worked for me. One reader said that the cashier wouldn't take her paper coupons because she had already used digital coupons. One reason I use the self scan register. I like to go at my own pace and never been questioned about a paper and digital coupon match. If you take a second look at your Sunday paper you will also see an insert that P&G put in promoting their digital coupons next to the P&G coupon insert. To me that is proof that you can use them both. I am sorry if anyone is having trouble with the match up.

I am sending out my Thursday column tonight so all my readers don't have to wait until Thursday to go out and get the deals. I did put some extra deals in that I didn't think the coupons would be around on Thursday

Have you seen the commercial with Matt Damon playing a regular guy named Steve whose family gets into a little financial trouble and needs to go to the food bank? This Feeding America commercial is trying to portray that the people who are struggling with hunger are just like us. They live in our communities, they work, they have families, and they share many of the same interests and values that we do. One major reason I started to write this column is to help people in a small way start saving on everyday items. Not paying for toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, deodorant and more saves you money to put towards other essential purchases. Remember to pay it forward - the concept of performing a good dead which in turn will be repaid by having the recipient do a good deed for someone else. Get some free stuff and bring it to a shelter today.
