We would like to take a minute and say thank you for checking out our site!  We hope you find the information here useful and encouraging…

We want to introduce you to our site and help you navigate what you see.  If you have questions or comments, please feel free to leave them under this post and we will reply back.


To keep up with what we’re doing here, you have several options. First, you can bookmark in your browser.

Many people also find it helpful to “Like” Deals in the Mitten on Facebook and receive updates in their Facebook feed.  It’s one of the BEST ways to stay on top of the deals we find as some are time sensitive – and those deals get posted to Facebook quickly.  Keep in mind, the more you comment, like, and share our posts on Facebook, the more posts from Deals in the Mitten you will see in your feed!

You can also follow Deals in the Mitten at @DealsinMitten on Twitter. Other options for joining are found on the top right hand side of this page. Look for your preferred connection via the buttons for RSS feed or subscribe by email as well for daily updates in your inbox.


I believe everyone from beginner to expert can find something new or helpful here :-) .

We share daily updates to new printable coupons and coupons that become available.  You can also look for coupons yourself in the Searchable Coupon Database.

The coupon method we recommend is the full insert method, with a small file for printed coupons.  The full insert method simply means keeping the coupon inserts intact and utilizing a tote bag to store them.  Then when you see a “code” here on Deals in the Mitten with a date and letter combo, such as 5/1 SS, you can quickly go to your inserts and find the Smart Source insert with the 5/1 date on the spine…

…then simply flip through the insert and find the coupon you want.  Clip it and attach it to your list for that store and you’re all set to go!


This site is dedicated to helping you save money in Michigan and beyond!

You’ll find weekly full coupon matchups for these stores:  Meijer, Target, Family Fare, Kroger, Big Kmart, Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, Aldi and Big Lots.  We also cover dollar store ads as they become available –  Dollar General, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar.


We’ve been sharing deals since August 2008 – originally on Sarah’s Deals – and now on the renamed site Deals in the Mitten.  We encourage you to do what works for you, start small and learn as you go.

When possible, please consider helping out those in your community.  That free item you won’t/don’t use at the store you are already shopping at?  Grab one and donate it to a pantry, mission or neighbor in need.

We run reviews and/or giveaways from time to time as well.  We love working with everyone from crafters who sell, all the way up to national brands, so you will see it all.  If you are interested in seeing a certain product highlighted or have a company that would like to be considered for review or offer a giveaway, please contact us!

We don’t charge to use this site, and it’s always your choice to purchase or print from our links, but it is much appreciated as we do put a lot of time, thought and planning into this site.  We do make a small commission on any links you click through and it helps us to keep the site running!

No matter what, we strive to keep the content relevant to topic and only agree to content that we already know/like/approve of or believe fits with our readers.  All opinions are ours regardless of any compensation received.

Thanks again for visiting.  We hope you come back soon.  And, as stated above, please ask questions in the comments or contact us via the email button on the right.  We strive to respond to all comments and inquiries in a timely manner. We’re here to help you live better, shop better, save better.  Let us know what we can do to help you!
