It has been difficult to get all the coupons you should expect in the Sunday paper around here. Either the paper didn’t have all the expected coupon inserts, or they were stolen or just missed when the paper was put together. It just became frustrating.
At the beginning of the year, I started buying my coupon inserts online and that solved the hassle I was having in getting the coupons I wanted.
Recently in the mid-Michigan area, the cost of the Sunday paper doubled. From $1.50, to $3.00 (can you say ouch?) That can cut the number of papers you would buy and maybe that is the reason why they did it. It was cheaper for me to buy my inserts before they raised the price, and really is cheaper now.
But I got to thinking, and maybe you have already done this. The coupons that are coming in the local paper, are also available to print online. You just have to be quick as some of the print limits (manufacturers set limits on how many of a coupon can be printed) are reached quickly. Coupons.com coupons can be printed twice (hitting the back button allows you to print it twice). You can also print Red Plum coupons and SmartSource. You can try to print 2 of each, but it may require you select your coupons, print them and then select them again. More coupon options can be printed from the Print Coupon link on the menu bar above.
To save ink, make sure you are printing in draft and print in black and white. Most stores, check their coupon policy, accept printed black and white coupons. And if you have more than one computer hooked up to a printer, you can print coupons from all your computers.
Those are just a few options to put more change in your pocket and save more money couponing.
