There will be 5 inserts in this Sunday’s paper, if you have been thinking about starting to coupon this is an awesome week to start!!!
If you just started couponing it would help a lot to know how many newspapers to buy (you don’t have to buy newspapers if you don’t want to but it helps a lot!)
The rule of thumb is 1 newspaper per family member so we have 4 family members , so I buy 4. Some people buy an extra newspapers, but I have issues with this since I am not a fan of odd numbers!
Also, if you are barely starting and all this is really new to you, I recommend buying only 2. If there’s a BOGO sale you can still get 1 deal. Once you get the hang of it you can buy as many as you want.
Make sure you look for small town newspapers (which are usually cheap) and Free Spanish newspapers. For example sometimes the newspapers in the Austin, TX area have P&G inserts and Sometimes even red plum and Smart Source
This are the ones I check every week:
- Lake Travis View
- Westlake Picayune
- Ahora Si
- El Mundo
- Oak Hill Gazette
Will the 5 inserts also be in the normal Sunday’s papers? I live up north (Mopac/Braker) and don’t know where to find the papers you listed.
The Austin American Statesman usually has all the inserts every week. The other newspapers I listed are extra free or close to free newspapers that sometimes have inserts too. Hope this helps.
