Since there is SO MUCH that can be gleaned from the Sunday paper, today's post will only detail a few key benefits. At another time, I will address other benefits to receiving the Sunday paper.
First of all, call your local paper's subscription office and request home delivery of the Sunday paper only. ASK THEM FOR A PROMOTIONAL DEAL!! The paper that is delivered where I live is usually delivered for $1.50 per Sunday. However, they willingly offer an incentive to get new subscribers and will deliver the Sunday paper to them for just $0.75. If you ask them for the new subscribers deal, they will give it to you. I have asked for it upon renewal EVERY YEAR for more than 8 years and we still are getting our paper delivered at that rate. Another reason to request home delivery is to ensure that you actually get the paper. Who can remember every week to stop while they are out? And who wants to make a special stop just for that?
Once your paper arrives on Sunday morning, immediately go through it and pull out all the coupon flyers. In our paper, we get at least 2 coupon sections...usually more (except for holidays). Go through these page by page, clipping every coupon for products you MAY use before their expiration date.
I also pull out other related sales flyers so that I can know what sales are running at other establishments I frequent (office supply stores, Target, etc.). If our local grocery store doesn't have our preferred soda on sale, Target will, and vice-versa.
Start clipping. I'll give you more reasons to soon.
