May 17 2009 – 4 Coupon Inserts!
Posted on Saturday, May 16th, 2009 at 3:55 pm
There are a LOT of coupons in the newspaper this weekend. Two SmartSource inserts, a Red Plum, and a small P&G Brandsaver. Take a look at our list here. Remember, not all these coupons will be available in all areas.
Buy a lot of extra newspapers, it is worth it this week. Meet with other coupon clippers and exchange what you don’t need.
There are a couple of really good coupons this week. The Marcal Small Steps bath tissue is up to $4 off (making it free in some sizes). Knox has some very high value coupons – $6 off the 11 oz powder or caplets or $4 off the 5.5 oz powder or NutraMix for Strong Nails. There’s a Buy 1 Get 1 Free on select Mars single candy bars. 4C Drink Mix stick pack is free (up to 5.99) when you buy 4C tub or stick 14 ct+, and Wheat thins are free when you buy Ritz. Combine any of these with sales in your local area, including buy 1 get 1 free sales, and you have really saved a lot!
Organizing your coupons is important, especially during a week like this when you get a lot of them. I get two papers, and I often find additional coupon inserts at the local recycling center. I have found that it helps to layer the insert pages in stacks of 3 or 4, and cut the coupons all at once. Just be sure that it lines up and you don’t cut anything off. You can file them in a box with dividers for categories, or you can carry them in a binder with pocket pages – easier not to lose that way and you are not flipping though individual coupons. Some people carry lists of what is in each coupon insert such as the ones that we have on our site, and carry the inserts and lists in a binder to the store, with scissors. They match up the item with the coupon and insert date, and cut out the coupon right there at the store.
Get busy! This hobby is fun and you save a TON of money.
