Day 17: Get Coupons from Free Papers

In the near future, I will share my frugal tips for successful couponing for those who have busy schedules with limited time for coupon matchups and grocery shopping.

In the meantime though, one of the most important parts of couponing is collecting the coupons from each weeks paper, even on the weeks you don't shop, so that when you do plan your list for the store you'll have all the coupons you need.

One of the easiest ways to get extra coupons is to look in copies of the free local papers in your area. They usually will have the Red Plum and P&G inserts, but not the SmartSource. In DC, for example, you can find the inserts in the Northwest Current. A completely free local paper that they leave a stack of copies of in the lobby of our apartment building. The papers also come out on Wednesday, so you can snag some of the coupons well before they come out in the Sunday paper.

Be sure to see if any of your local free papers have these inserts!
