Coupons Coupons, where to begin?

I have been trying to become more coupon/deal savvy. Let's just say...it's not going as well as it could. I have my little organizer, I clip the coupons I get in the local paper's circular (and by local I mean small town paper that you don't have to pay for a subscription, it only comes once a week or so), and I try to remember that I have them. Sometimes (OK, most of the time) I don't remember I have them until the coupon has expired. Oops.

So, I signed up for www.couponmom.com. If you don't know what this is, check it out. It's pretty cool. It tells you what's on sale/what you can use a coupon for in your state/store, how much the item is before and after the coupon (or in-store savings) and what % you save after all discounts/coupons. Nice, right? Yeah, but the thing is you HAVE to buy a Sunday paper to get the good circulars...and we're talking, a bigger Sunday paper. So, of course, here it is MONDAY, and I have no idea where to buy a Sunday paper on a SUNDAY, let alone today. So, Ben and I have a new project: find out where on EARTH to buy a Sunday paper around here...on Sunday or any other day! We will be checking: grocery stores, convenience stores, dollar stores, drugstores, and bookstores. Other than that, it's going to be a wild goose chase. Hopefully after today we will know where to get them and won't have to do this again...hopefully. Wish us luck!

  1. For some newspapers you can get a Sunday Only subscription, delivered on Saturday. And of course a subscription is cheaper than remembering to go on a newspaper hunt once a week, which I believe fits in the money saving theme. Good Luck!

  2. Thanks...at first we didn't think our newspaper here did that, but after some searching we found out that they do. I still have to find the paper today (going grocery shopping on Friday) but after that it's a subscription for us!
