How many papers? Week of 10/26/14

The week of 10/26/14, we’re expecting three inserts: SmartSource, Red Plum, and P&G. See the full list at Coupon Previews.

  • Use this as a general guide, because coupons and values vary regionally. Sometimes our papers will not include one or more of the coupons listed, or when one area will get one $ amount on their coupons, we will get another.
  • In Chicagoland, the Chicago Tribune has the most coupons in it — even if the Sun-Times, or the DuPage Daily Herald, or the other smaller papers have the same inserts, they’re thinner. (Occasionally, the Sun-Times will contain a coupon not found in the Trib, but overall you’ll find many more in the Trib.) If you are outside Chicagoland, you will want to buy the largest-circulation paper in your area.
  • In IL-Chicagoland, you can pick up the early edition of the Sunday Chicago Tribune on Saturday morning for $1.00 at Menards or Dollar Tree.
  • Be sure to check to make sure that the inserts are in there before purchasing — since they are no longer in plastic bags, they’re falling out, not making it in, or getting swiped.
  • Check out the Mashup Mom Coupon Trading Group on Facebook if you’re looking for different coupons or have some you want to trade.

So, how many?

Well. There are a LOT of good coupons for drugstore and Target HBA deals if you are playing that game, but there are not a lot of good food coupons. I might only get two, but we are well stocked on HBA — if you are still building up your stockpile, you might want to do four+.

3 pack mouthwash $.91

91centmouthwash

You can possibly score a three pack of 50.7 oz Simply Right mouthwash at Sam’s Club for $.91 on clearance. Prices vary by store depending on their clearance schedule. I played around and found it in stock at the Woodridge, IL Sam’s as of 8:35 AM on Friday, but my guess is they will go fast. Can order online for in-store pickup.
