There were no coupons in my Sunday paper 2 weeks ago, but I did get a small section last week.  I'm sure tomorrow will be bring a couple of good sections.

Carol, there are never good coupons on holiday weekends.  Tomorrow is supposed to have 4 or 5 coupons sections! 

I'm still looking for people to trade coupons with if anyone is interested--see my other post "coupon traders".

Carol, where I used to work the staff there were very much into recycling.  SOmeone had started a small box in the break room that was strictly for coupons.  People would drop off the coupons they didn't want and could pick up coupons that they would use.  Is this something you could try at your work or apartment complex?

They also did the same recycling concept for magazines.  I didn't care if the magazines where a few months old...the articles were still good.

gosh I remember when I was a pre-teen/early teen one of the local grocery stores had this bin that was about3 inches deep or so and there would be coupons tossed in..I think people brought what they didn't want and took what they wanted and probably the store even tossed some in. my mom seldom used them so I've been kinda the same way. my coworker uses them but I really never find any for products I use. I find some here and there - like Aussie shampoo the other day - but overall I'd get on the coupon 'kick' and buy sunday papers then be disappointed. since my coworker uses them I may pick up a sunday paper here and there and just give them to her if I don't use them.

Yep! Today was coupon heaven! At least 5 thick sections. I have a fairly large pile on my kitchen table.  Most of it was for "Healthy New year eating" but they had quite a few things that I actually buy so I was happy to get them. I was a scissors happy girl this morning!

You all must have gotten better inserts than I did. I might have found one coupon.

We don't use normal cleaning products, though, and we eat little pre-prepared food. Which is most of what the coupons are for! 

While we do eat soup, buy 4 for 25 cents is hardly enough to get me to buy name brand full of junk rather than a store brand or organic version.
