      I am new to all of this, so excuse me if this is a silly question. I got the redplum insert in the mail on wednesday. Do you think I will only have the smart source insert in my paper?
      Thank you so much for your site, I have been visiting daily and always find something new to read!

    • Tammie

      Here’s what I do, I buy a Sunday paper on Saturday while I’m out running errands. Then I look through the coupons to see if there are very many good ones to determine how many papers to buy. Then I either buy more papers Saturday evening or Sunday morning. I like to cut the coupons all at once so I only cut out any ones I need for my Sunday morning CVS and Walgreens runs and then do the stack, staple, and cut all at once with the rest. I like having Jenny’s preview so I can be alert for specific coupons but as she mentioned, they really vary by region. Hope this helps

      Find a paper in a bigger market if you want all the coupons

    • Lana

      Seems like coupons on actual food products are getting fewer and fewer. If all of you are like me you DON”T need anymore toothpaste or dish soap or TP or etc!

    • Do you need someone to cover the Huntsville Times in Alabama? That’s the only local Alabama paper I have access to w/ coupons, and it seems to be better than the Montgomery one that you have posted now.I didn’t buy any last week but plan on it this week.

    • Erica

      I can cover the Dallas Morning News if needed? I thought the inserts were mostly the same, but there are several differences.

    • Michelle

      In response to Sarah

      I live in Memphis and I received some of the coupons you have N by in my red plum mailer:
      Acne Free coupons
      Herbal Essence styling products
      Strap Perfect Bra Strap Concelear

      So I guess it even varies by zip codes in Memphis. Very Interesting.

    • Kathryn

      Hi everyone- In response to Sarah and Michelle: I live in South Florida and worked for The Palm Beach Post/Sun Sentinel newspaper here. The Red Plum advertisers here zone their inserts by zip code (meaning different inserts for different zip codes.) Even in your newspaper it will vary from town to town depending on their target markets. It never is a drastic difference but depending on who the advertisers want to target their ads to you will see different ads/coupons.

    • Michelle

      Thanks Kathryn for the information. Why can’t we all just get the same coupons.:(
      It would be so much easier for all of us coupon clippers!!

    • Marlene

      In response to Julie – I get the Red Plum insert on Weds by mail also. So on Sunday, my small local paper has only the Smart Sense insert, but the newspaper for larger metro area has both inserts.
      So your answer is you’ll need to check the newspaper first.

    • Jenn

      We are relatively new to the SE, and have couponed about 6 months. What papers in the SE are “bigger” papers? We live in Greenville, SC and usually get about half of what is listed :( Should I drive to ATL each week?

    • Jenn

      Also, where can you get a SUNDAY paper on SATURDAY?

    • Jen

      Is there anyone in the Myrtle Beach, SC area who knows where to get one of the larger papers like out of columbia or charlotte? Bi-Lo on 38th used to carry the Charlotte one on Sundays, but they stopped. The bigger papers have so many more coupons than the Sun News.

    • Lana, I agree with you, it seems like the food coupon’s are getting fewer and fewer, which is disappointing. I found a small coupon organizer for only $1 at the Dollar Tree in my area. It’s a small accordion style one, which actually has sections seperated on the inside already (like one pouch for dairy and meat and another pouch for snacks and so on). Thought this would be a good and inexpensive coupon organizer for anyone who needs one.

    • Kim

      I have a question for you AJCers. I will be leaving to go out of town this week on Saturday. If I buy the early Sunday paper that comes out on Saturday does it have the same coupons in it? Or I will be in Knoxville so does anyone know if the Knoxville area carries the Sunday AJC? Thanks!

    • Angi

      Kim

      I have always bought the early edition of the AJC, I have not noticed a difference in the inserts. HTH

    • sarah

      to Michelle and Kathryn: thanks for the updates – very interesting to see the differences even in one market. Seems like a lot of unnecessary work for the people who put the fliers together.

    • Nise

      to julie you should receive the redplum again

    • Nise

      anyone from va

    • michelle

      Hello I’m from VA. What papers in the Northern VA are “bigger” papers? What inserts do each of them have? Where can I get a SUNDAY paper on SATURDAY?

    • Valerie

      Michelle:
      My mom lives in VA and when I visit her I get the Washington Post in Fredericksburg at Shoppers store on Saturday but remember no Red Plum… On sunday You can get the Free Lance-Star Its has enough coupons compare to the paper I get in MD. Hope this helps!!

    • Tammie
      Where can you buy the paper on Saturday evening??? That would be so much more convenient for me

    • gail

      Has anyone tried to use the AJC $1 coupon for Sunday’s newspaper ON Saturday?

    • Annette

      Here in Ga, almost every convenience store has the Sunday paper available on Saturday evenings. Be careful though, it’s been a while since I bought one from a store (I get Sunday delivered to my house), but they used to not have coupons in the Saturday night/Sunday papers. If that made sense… :o) Also, the dollar trees in this area, sell their papers cheaper than anywhere else.

    • Melissa

      I live in Sprig, TX and my newspapers only contained Smart Source. No Red Plum. I was very disappointed in the coupons in the last few weeks. There are fewer coupons that are for food.

    • Stacy

      I’m in the atlanta area and I know that Kroger & Publix stock the early edition of the newspaper on Saturdays. And yes they have coupons in them. Whether or not they are the same as the Sunday edition of the paper I don’t know. But I would assume so.

    • Dianne

      Yes, the coupons are the same in the early edition and Sunday editions of the AJC. I tried to use the AJC coupon on a Saturday a few weeks ago, and Kroger wouldn’t take it because it is dated to be used only on the Sunday of each weekend.

    • seacoastmom

      I have a Washington DC Sunday paper question…. Does anyone know which paper is good to get in & around DC/Kensington MD area? We’ll be traveling in a few weeks.

      The Charleston P&C has had a pretty stinky selection in the last few weeks & I’d love to stock up if there are going to be good coupons available coupons on the 9th! I might even need to pickup extra copies for my couponing buddies!

      LOVE the coupon preview function on the site. LOVE it!

    • Robin

      I am new to couponing and live in Southwest Missouri. I bought yesterday’s Springfield paper, but there weren’t anywhere near the coupons in my paper as you have listed here. Do I need to be buying a Sunday paper from a bigger city like Kansas City or Saint Louis? Please help–my husband and I really want to start saving on groceries, but there were hardly any coupons in the paper I bought. It had both the smart source and the red plum and many of the same coupons, but not nearly so many as you have listed.
      HELP!

    • gail

      I was able to buy the Sunday AJC ON Saturday and use the $1 coupon, at Publix.
      Robin, yes you want to buy the biggest paper you can get. We do not even read the AJC, but buy it for the coupons ONLY. The big newspaper pays for itself many times over.

    • How do I get red plum inserts? I do not find them in my paper.

    • srtasa

      for n va and dc, get the washington post paper. last week the red plum was back in it. hopefully it is back for good and not in the mail any more. there are no coupons in the washington times. most grocery stores and drug stores have the sunday wash post on sat, sun and mon and sometimes after that. you shouldn’t have any problems finding it.
