Anyone just trash your coupons from the Sunday paper? If so, I'll take them!!

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!!

My Sunday coupons go out into the recycle bin on Tuesdays. I just don't have time to use them.

There are quite a few coupon sites online nowadays and you may want to try those, as well.

I truly am not recommending this, but I have seen, at recycling places where people drop off newspapers, people "dumpster-diving" in the newspaper bin to look for coupons. It's unsanitary, not the safest thing, and strictly forbidden by signage on the bins, but I see it frequently.

Probably a better way is to ask your neighbors to save their inserts for you if they don't want them

Where? We've tried online coupon sites, and in our experience they just don't match what's in the Sunday paper.

You also try asking for the ads/coupons at the library. Some libraries tend to put only the actual full-sized pages on the shelf for patrons to read. I'm guessing that they either recycle the coupons (or take them home for themselves).

If you go through your paper and find some particularly good coupons (or are preparing for a major sale, like the Harris Teeter super doubles) Walgreens sells Sunday paper for .99 and the dollar stores usually sell the Sunday papers on Mondays for .50.

Walgreens now charges $1.50 for the N&O, but still the cheapest in the area.

I need to find neighbors that'd give me their coupons, I'd even give them some of the stuff I get with the coupons. Trying to get the N&O to deliver 2 papers a week was a complete disaster. I am fairly certain my delivery guy can barely speak english and can't read whatever instructions they give him.

Just buy a few papers from the store, I bet you will spend the same in gas driving around collecting papers and coupons vs. buying a few papers.

We also got rid of N&O home delivery due to the above posters' thoughts - very unreliable delivery. When we'd call and complain they would just credit us and you don't actually get any money until you build up a "credit bank" equal to a months billing (if I recall correctly). What a joke. No wonder people are moving toward online stuff...at one point we were even paying for week day delivery as well.

N&O's loss, not ours .
