How many papers? Week of 3/1/15

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

The week of 3/1/15 we’re expecting four inserts: One SmartSource, two Red Plum, and a 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, what looks good to me?

  • Cheerios $.75/1 protein cereal (4/11)
  • Energizer $1/1 batteries or flashlight (3/28)
  • Helper $.50/1 regular or ultimate (4/25). If it’s really $.50/1 any — they go a buck all the time, sometimes as low as $.88 at Ultra.
  • McCafe $1/1 coffee item (4/11)
  • Wonderful $.50/1 5lb+ sweet scarletts (4/1). If you found or find the $2.99 5 lb Scarletts at Jewel.
  • Angel soft $.45/1 bathroom tissue (4/1)
  • Dry Idea $2/1 antiperspirant deodorant product (3/28)
  • got2b $2/1 styling item (4/4). This will be net $.99 at CVS after coupon + ECB on Sunday.
  • Right Guard $2/1 xtreme heat shield antiperspirant deodorant (3/28).

  • all/Snuggle $2/2 products ets (4/12). We’ll have to see the wording on this — if it doesn’t exclude the smaller Snuggle sheets, you have a deal here.
  • Dole $1.25/2 frozen fruit products (5/3)
  • Garnier Fructis $2/1 shampoo, conditioner or treatment ets (3/28) AND Garnier Fructis $2/1 style product ets (3/28). Last time we didn’t get this one in the Tribune, so hopefully we will this time.
  • Muller $1/2 greek 100 yogurts dnd (4/12) AND Muller $1/3 yogurts dnd (4/12). Some of the yogurts have been rollback $.88 at Walmart.
  • Tyson $.75/1 chicken nuggets (6/1)

So, how many?

A P&G week is always a good week to get multiples, especially if you do a lot of drugstore deals — and Fructis, got2b, Dry Idea will all be drugstore useful. The food coupons aren’t great overall, so invest more heavily if you play the drugstore game.

The week of 2/22/15 we’re expecting one insert: SmartSource. See the full list at Coupon Previews.

(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.

So, how many?

It’s another snoozer of a week, unless you are deep into the drugstore game. I’m maybe doing two, but as always, your family’s needs may differ.

  • L’Oreal $5/2 preference or excellence haircolor products excludes preference mousse absolue (3/14). (And $2.00/1 coupons, too.) I’ve seen some of the Preference at Dollar Tree, and it’s been clearanced a lot at Jewel and Target.
  • Old Spice $1/1 2ct bar soap ets (3/31). I want to say this is around $2.00 at Dollar General?

So, how many?

Um. One? For my purposes at least, there’s really not a lot in here. There are some OK coupons if you play the drugstore game a lot or need the L’Oreal, but very few coupons and nothing outstanding. I’ll post an update in tomorrow’s Notes from the Chicago Tribune if there are any surprises.

The week of 12/28/14, we’re expecting one insert: 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, what looks good to me?

  • $2.00/1 Tide detergent. There is a nice P&G ECB deal coming up at CVS on Sunday.
  • $2.00/1 Always Discreet.
  • $5.00/2 and $2.00/1 Clairol hair color.
  • $1.50/1 various Crest sensi-pastes.
  • $.75/1, $1.50/2, $2.25/3 Crest toothpaste 3oz+ or rinse 237ml+ or oral-b glide floss 35m or glide floss picks.
  • $.25/1 Dawn and $.50/1 Dawn hand renewal.
  • $5.00/3 Pantene.
  • $3.00/2 and $1.00/1 Vick’s.

So, how many?

I’m picking up three so I have enough coupons to do the Tide deal along with my 2 from last month’s P&G. You?
