Just some notes:
  • Meijer doubles 2 of the same coupons up to $.50. You may use more of the same coupon they just won't double it.
  • To print the Meijer coupons, click on the link I provided. On the left side of the page there's a box called Meijer Mealbox, inside that box click on the specials tab. Select the coupons you want to print. Once you have your coupons selected click on the shopping list tab and then print.
  • To get the $1 catalina coupon on the peanut butter, you need to buy 2 jars of the Skippy Natural Peanut Butter. I don't think you'll get a catalina if you buy the regular Skippy Peanut Butter.
  • The ragu coupon apparently doesn't have a print limit because I printed 5 coupons off one computer.
  • To see a complete list of Meijer's sale items go here. Thanks Coupon Clippin' Momma!


  1. Wow! Wish we had a Meijer in mt Vernon!

  2. You gotta figure out an excuse to go to Newark. :-)

  3. Some days I wish I lived right next to Kroger, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target and Meijer ( all at the same time)!!! :) But, then I would probably constantly be shopping and that would not be good......
    I don't care for Ragu pasta sauce, so if you ever need/want more coupons for it, just let me know and you can have mine!! My kids won't eat spagetti made with it and I don't like the taste, either.

  4. I too think it would be nice to live next to all the stores but it probably wouldn't be good for me either...

    I'll take the $.60/2 Ragu coupons for last Sundays red plum if your not going to use them. I use to think I didn't like Ragu either but I tried it again recently and I think it tastes better than what it used to. I also think it makes a difference on what flavor you buy. I like to buy the six cheese flavor or the Marghertia Style (flavored with pizza seasonings & Moz. Chz)

  5. I like the Garden Veggie Ragu. It tastes so much fresher and not over cooked like Aldi Pasta Sauce. I want to try the Margherita flavor.
    Monica, are you serious about your kids not eating ragu sauce???!!! My kids don't know the difference!
    Yea I gotta figure out how to get to's 45 minutes for me....It's 5 minutes closer to Mansfeild. I actually like Mansfeild better, because they have a great mall, Old Navy, Wal-Mart, Khols, 2 thrift stores, Joanne Fabrics, and Once upon a child within a half mile of each other. I think Meijer, Kroger, CVS, and Target are close by too. I will be thankful for my Kroger and CVS......
