New Super-Couponing Tips column: "Tales of shrinkage from the other side"

This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Tales of shrinkage from the other side." Here's an excerpt:

"I like the downsizing of products. Ironically, I have three kids, two of whom are teens and all of which are taller than me *sigh*.

Steak knives deal at Jewel-Osco - here are the knives...

Through 6/15, when you buy three American Greetings cards priced at $2.99 or more, you'll receive a free 4-piece steak knife set. I did the deal this week, and this is what the knife set looks like if you're curious..!

I found the knives on a free-standing display in the card area. There are tearpad coupons next to them. The knives scan at $9.99 and the "Buy 3 cards" coupon makes them free.

We haven't tried the knives yet, but they feel like they're of decent quality. Hey, these are going to replace a worn-out set we got free-after-rebate at Menards, so I guess we're not terribly picky either :)
