Deb Morris: Fru-Gal

Column 12-10

Last week, I talked about how to save money on stocking stuffers or gift-basket goodies.

Let me help you save some money on your baking supplies and groceries for your holiday meal. First of all, go online to load clipless coupons on your Kroger card. Using these coupons along with online coupons and Sunday paper coupons can really make a difference in your receipt total.

I tell people that it isn’t hard to save at least 50 percent on your shopping trip. Use all the tips I give you every week to help you.

If you miss a column, go to to see past columns. I love to share all my knowledge. Become a friend on my Web site, www., to hear about great deals every week.
