Extreme Couponing Tip: Subscribe to Different Sunday Newspapers
Sunday newspapers are one of the biggest resources for a Krazy Couponer’s coupon stockpile. Coupons vary by region, so diversify your binder by subscribing to more than one edition of the Sunday paper!
If you live in an area that sells more than one paper, try out the various editions. Every Sunday I receive newspapers from two different areas–the two major cities adjoining my suburb. It’s amazing that even within 30 miles, there can be a such a wide variation in the coupons that come in the inserts! Coupons can contrast in value amounts, product size restrictions, and number of products required. Or they can even be totally separate coupons. When you subscribe or buy more than one area’s newspaper, you can get more variety and sometimes higher value coupons, allowing for better final prices and a more diverse stockpile.
To save money on Sunday newspapers, make sure to inquire about weekend or Sunday only options and discounts for subscribing to multiple copies. As a Krazy Couponer, we suggest subscribing to at least one paper per person in your household, or 4-6 Sunday papers. This way you can have extra coupons, allowing you to stock up when prices are rock bottom. Other ways to get papers for cheap: if you have a Dollar Tree store nearby, ask if they carry Sunday papers. Most locations do, and the price is just $1.00. Also look into a Sunday Advance edition option for a possible discount.
