If I could find a neighbor or someone on the way to the stores I go to on Sunday anyway, there would be very little cost to me.

Also, anyone have any idea what happens to the left over Sunday papers when they aren't sold? I'm trying to beef up my coupon collection, so I'd love to get my hands on leftovers!!

Thanks!!
Does this help any? Shows the advertising circulars for quite a few stores all over the country. There's a "coupon tab" at the very top of the page.

I have some friends who are AVID couponer. TYhey actually go around once a week and dig through the newspaper recycling bins at various schools. They sometimes end up with 20-40 coupon inserts that people just toss in their recycling bins. I was in the car with one a friend a couple of times she did that and no one at the school or anywhere batted an eye at her digging through the paper recycling bin. (And those bins are ONLY paper bins, so there isn't anything gross in them).
Just sayin'...
Also, I have heard, (but have never looked) that dollar stores carry the Sunday paper for $.50 cents on Mondays.

Yep, I get mine at $tree on Monday's if it was a good insert week and I want more. Sometimes my Walmart sells them too for 1/2 price if there are any left, but it's hit or miss.

Yes, coupons are available online, however, they don't match the inserts and there's usually a print limit of 2.

What I also do is if I know a sale is coming up, like triple coupons, and there are some coupons out there that will make an item free/cheap, I'll order multiples either on Ebay or thecouponclippers.com. Usually costs anwhere from $1-$2 for 20 coupons, which is a steal considering everything I've gotten for free!

www.savvydollar.org is a great local couponing resource.

This is all very interesting to me. I sure could use to save money but I just don't have time to deal with coupons. Now I feel like I may be missing something, though.

Time? We spend about 10 minutes clipping coupons on Sunday, and another 5 or 10 pulling out the ones we want before we go to the store. Honestly, it's not that big an investment of time, and the savings can be significant, especially when combined with in-store specials and double/triple coupon terms.

I never thought of buying coupons on Ebay, but I saw them on there the other day. I wonder if those ppl who sell the coupons really make money? I guess it's worth it if everything you get is free.

This probably isn't what you're looking for but it may help others. I used thecouponclippers.com once. You pay a few pennies per coupon (with a minimum order of like $3 or so) and they mail you the coupons. It tells you the expiration date so you can plan ahead. I don't know if I'll do it again as I found myself thinking "I definitely want that coupon!" and then once it got here realized that it wasn't really a product I wanted or needed to spend my money on. For others, though, it could be very useful. They also have a few restaurant coupons (I got two for Subway).
