Because we have a coupon swap with several friend and family members, we don’t need to always have a newspaper subscription to get the grocery coupons we use.
We wait for a super discounted deal on a newspaper subscription and then purchase several months’ worth of the paper for Wednesday (grocery ad day in our area) and Sunday (or weekends—depending on what promotion they are running). A few years ago we discovered DiscountNewspapers.com. You can easily subscribe to most local papers at huge discounts. Hey, if it saves you a few bucks, why not give it a try. We’ve done it and it’s been great.
