Question Marks Where do YOU get your coupons?



I have seen, several times, on here where someone happens upon a good sale. They just happen to have 15 coupons for that item with them. WHAT?? How do you have that many coupons? I know the obvious (multiple papers, family, recycle bins, etc). I want to know where YOU ALL get your coupons? What am I missing?

Thanks!

Check your local high schools. They usually receive donated copies of the newspapers, including the Sunday. My friend is a teacher and she picks up multiple copies of inserts and then we barter for them. (I give her eggs from my chickens and she gives me 10 copies of each insert).

Someone else on this site suggested to check with motels in your area because they usually have complementry papers, but I haven't done that myself. It may be an idea you can use.

Tell everyone you know that you use coupons and you will be surprised how many people will save them for you, if you just ask!

I buy 10-20 depending on how good they are. Then I buy individual coupons on ebay or from one of the clipping services. Occasionally I buy whole inserts if it makes sense.

Right now I am just buying a couple of sunday papers but can see I need to up my game.

Can anyone tell me how the price of buying a complete insert compare to buying a paper?

Ours is $2 per single copy here...$6 a month delivered.

So far what I've been doing is paying for it with RR's or UPs.

I get mine from two gas stations. I never know what I will end up with. Least amount I have gotten is 15 between the 2 most was 115! lol That was an awesome week. I average about 50 though. This week was funny. I got exactly 1 good coupon in my paper and I used them already. I ♥ Mentos. I used to hit my neighbors recycling bin, I trade some stockpile goods for a TON of coke codes and inserts from a guy I know, My mom has a friend that saves me inserts in exchange for newpaper since I take the whole paper home and pull out the inserts and then recycle them. My DH's Grandmother recently started sending me coupons too which Is funny. She cuts out each and every coupon for me. Such a sweetie. Also just started including booklets and stuff that she finds in the stores.

There are tons of ways to be cheap about getting them Although I have been known to buy at times through a clipper or from ebay if the cost wasn't too high. You can also trade here.

I asked my local neighborhood store that I have been using for years if they would save me any left over inserts and they were only too happy to oblige. I still always buy my 2 papers from there each week and then go back Monday and get the rest of my inserts. Some weeks there are more than others in the way of left over papers but that's okay by. If I get a good deal or something I know they would like and use for free or virtually free I give them some for taking the time to take the inserts out of the paper, so it's win, win for everyone.

I also have friends who keep the inserts for me. There are lot's of ways to get the inserts just get inventive and don't be afraid to ask...
