My sister-in-law who lives with us gets the paper daily. My wife does the crossword puzzles and I get the ads and coupons.
Our paper also delivers for free something called the Yes Paper. It has just the ads and coupons. Check your local paper to see if they carry it there.
When we are done with the paper, the glossy pages go to recycling and the newsprint pages go in the garden. My wife puts newspaper down then mulch to help keep the weeds out and the water in. Eventually, it breaks down and we start all over.
@SaverGirl67 I thought of you when I picked up my Sunday paper this morning and it has quite a bit of coupon inserts from smartsource, and P&G. I'm not sure what region you are in and I know it can vary by region, but just thought I'd let you know. I went ahead and purchased 2 papers this morn as I saw alot that I would use. I love to check Ibotta at the same time clipping them to see what's available to stack.
@SaverGirl67 aside from the occasional post purchase printed coupon I might get from Kroger and thanks to my ability to pick and choose e-coupons for Kroger, Publix and Sprouts I'm just not keen on printed hard copy coupons, therefore I won't go for newspaper subscriptions
If you REALLY want newspaper store circulars WITHOUT doing a subscription, find out where magazine and newspaper recycling bins are, you can then collect circulars to your 💜's content without spending ONE shiny red penny
I had 4 inserts in today’s paper. I saw on Krazy coupon lady what the coupons were and since there were several good coupons ($2+) on products that I buy every week, I decided to buy 2 papers today. I just finished clipping the coupons that I will most likely use and it was $65 from each newspaper ($130 total). So was it worth $2x2? Absolutely.
