Even though there weren't many earth shattering deals this week, I still like to stock up on my coupons when I can - you never know if those coupons will work with a great deal in an upcoming week's ad! This morning (Monday) I was able to get 20 free newspapers. I'll tell you how.
I'm not a morning person but I get up especially early on Monday mornings (6am). I have about 4 convenience stores within a couple miles of my home. I went to all of them and asked if they had any unsold Sunday papers that they were going to throw away. One store said they already threw them out, but the other 3 stores let me have what was left over & unsold. One of the stores said they have to give the papers back to the company but allowed me to take out the coupon inserts.
20 free newspaper inserts at $1.50 each would have cost me $30! Now that is a great savings :)
