To maximize your savings, gather coupons. Inside each Sunday paper are “Coupon Inserts” called Smart Source (SS), Red Plum (RP) or Proctor & Gamble (PG). You may also receive coupons in “The Bag” which is distributed weekly on mailboxes or doorknobs in most neighborhoods.
Call your local newspaper’s circulation department and ask…
· Do you offer a Sunday only subscription?
· Are you currently offering any discount on the Sunday only subscription?
· Do you offer any discount if I order multiple copies of your Sunday paper? (Subscribing to 4-6 copies of the Sunday paper will give you 4-6 copies of each coupon and you’ll be able to stockpile items when they are Free or cheap or you can purchase whole inserts online from services like Collectable Coupons, The Coupon Clippers or CouponsandthingsbyDede.) The cost of multiple newspaper usually pays for itself weekly.
You don't have to wait until your newspaper subscription gets delivered, stop by your local grocery store, drug store or gas station and see if they have any newspaper left over from yesterday. They will gladly sell them to you.
