I'm a couponer in RI, so I was hoping someone had real answers to your question! If the Providence Journal is available in your area, it's only $3 but it's so thin these days I hate to even pay that.

How about the larger local papers? I know that sometimes they have regular inserts on Saturday if they don't publish on Sunday. In RI, I think the Pawtucket Times does that - maybe Worcester has a similar paper?

Also, I'm finding that more and more I don't even need to buy the Sunday paper because now Smart Source is being mailed to my home along with the Red Plum inserts. Again, that may be only because the coupon folks got hold of my name or because the Projo had bled subscribers so badly that the advertisers HAVE to do this. And of course, always check coupons.com, coupon.network.com, pillsbury, etc for internet printables - often a better deal anyway. (check www.mavenofsavin
.com)

We get a couple of free papers in my mailbox every Thurs/Fri. There are usually coupons in there. Walmart.com has coupons at the bottom of their website if you look carefully. A lot can be found online.

When I lived in NC you could pick up the Sunday paper at Dollar Tree for $1 on Mondays. I have no idea here.

if there are specific coupons that you wanna get your hands on....your best bet is to just buy them on ebay. usually, for a small token+shipping...you'll be able to get a stack of a specific coupon that you want. buying newspapers just for coupons is kinda hit-or-miss (unless of course if you do read the papers diligently that it's not a waste)....not all coupons are useful to you. and usually, you wanna match the coupons to the current ongoing sales at your local shops.

Couponmom.com generally has coupons from redplum and others. It also tells you some coupons coming out about ahalf week beforehand. It has coupons you can print out and works OK.

The patriot ledger and brockton enterprise have coupons although I don't think they get redplum. For awhile they didn't have any but it was not fully explained as to why.

I know this post is older, but the Boston Herald is just $2.00 and gets about 90% of the same coups as the Globe. If you like the Globe, a subscription would be cheaper (usually just $2-3 when there are specials), but if you are only buying a paper just for coupons, you may want to do the math to see what is better for you. There aren't coupons in every Sunday paper, usually during holidays weekends their aren't any inserts. Also, depending on where you live, there may be a cheap local newspaper. I think on the North Shore theirs a paper for .50 that offers all the same inserts as the globe and herald.

Some jurisdictions have anti-scavenging laws (meaning that recyclable material belongs to them, not just anyone) so proceed with caution. Also, if you rummage through your neighbor's recycling, don't expect to be very popular in your neighborhood.
