Just a heads up, you do not need to buy a paper this Sunday!

Due to Memorial day there will NOT be any coupon inserts in the paper.

    • Brittney

      omg I'm going to have coupon withdrawal.

      • Millie

        My thoughts exactly!

      • RobinB78

        Me too! And I kept thinking all week that I was FINALLY going to have a long weekend to get the new coupons organized!! Boo for no q's!!!!

    • kelli

      thanks for the reminder!

    • The Lunch Lady

      YAY!! I need a break!!! Gimme a KitKat. Hee hee!

    • Mom2teenagers

      I read on another blog that General Mills may have an insert this weekend. Does anyone know for sure?

      • RebeccaFer

        I sure hope not! I don't know why advertisers do such things. It's a waste for them I feel since some people, like myself, would not buy a paper just for one small insert. They will of course get the normally scheduled delivery couponers but that's it for the most part.

        • Mom2teenagers

          As a rule, I won't buy a paper for one insert. At $2 for each paper, it's cheaper to order the whole insert from a clipping service.

          • RobinB78

            My husband has told me to do that in the past. But of course, when I order inserts online, that's when he decides he wants to drag out his charcoal grill and starts asking for the newspapers to help him get his coals started in the coal starter thingy!! So now I just buy the papers so he can't complain!! Luckily though, I buy my papers at a Barnes & Noble, and the woman that works their on Sundays knows I'm in it for coupons. She gives me the extras from a few customers she has that ask her to take out the ads beforehand! Woo hoo!

      • melody

        I also heard General Mills will have one.

      Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!! ::stomping my fists on the table, throwing a big baby tantrum:: Whatever will I do without new coupons? All I can say is the stores BETTER have a great deal going on based on what we already have! LOL
      (Ok, so my family will LOVE that I don't yell at them first thing on Sunday morning, “I've gotta go; I have to get the papers before they run out!” (Man, I wish I had people that would just GIVE me their coupons!)

    • Jill

      Thank you for the reminder

    • diane

      maybe my right hand (read: scissor-hand) can uncramp!

    • Cindy Lu

      I'm new to this thing here; no coupons on Sunday? Does this mean they will be in the holiday (Monday) paper or do they just skip a Sunday and catch it back up the next Sunday?

      • Amber

        Usually there are no coupons in the Monday holiday paper, but there should be some good ones next Sunday. Usually the week before and after a major holiday is a good time to get coupons.

    • Whew – I'm away in the mountains all weekend and didn't want to have to count on remembering in the midst of my friend's wedding weekend, or count on someone else to get it for me back home. It'll be nice to have a “breather.” :)

    • Donna

      thanks for the heads up

    • Jennifer

      This does not make me sad. I can catch up now on all the thousands of coupons that are waiting to be clipped now. Thanks for letting us know.

    • Thank goodness. Won't have to be bummed that our papers are without all the inserts. Not to mention I'll be gone anyway!

    • bfew0711

      I'm kinda relieved!! I NEED A BREAK!!!

    • Suemh

      It's nice that I don't have to make that drive this Sunday morning (25 miles round-trip), but I'm still upset that my Greenville News had no Red Plum last weekend.

      • Meme

        You should have had a red plum last week. We buy the Greenville News and we did get the insert. Do you think the newspaper office would provide one for you? I have asked the Anderson Independent Mail and they told me the delivery people pack the inserts so they couldn't help me but worth a try.

        • Suemh

          I'm sure that I would be told the same thing. I kow that the individual carriers are the ones who are responsible for putting the inserts in. What makes it so bad is that my son was visiting a friend in another town and picked me up 2 more papers from a store there, and neither of them had it either.

          • RobinB78

            What town was he visiting? Cause if he came down my way near Jacksonville, we NEVER get the Red Plum inserts. I have to go to Wilmington on Sundays so I can hit up the Barnes & Noble there to get Wilmington AND Raleigh papers! LOL

      • pureromancebychriste

        mine had it as well, u may have just got a bad paper

        • Suemh

          4 papers from 2 different towns.

    • Rachel

      this actually made me so happy just now!! I dont purchase my papers, but somehow many to squeeze a 40 min (round trip) drive into my crazy schedule every week to score 6 free leftover Sunday papers. Im super thankful that I get free ones, but it will sure be nice to not have to drive!!

      • how do you get free leftover papers?

    • Valerie

      This definitely makes the hubby happy since coupon cutting and bargain hunting basically takes the whole week haha! He thinks that I have time now to get other things done! Not with a 7 month old! Sorry Buddy! But seriously thanks for the heads up! ,

    • kim

      You just made my night…we'll be out of town and today I was trying to figure out how I was going to get my extra paper! LOL

    • nicki

      Between triples a few weeks ago, super doubles last week and no new coupons this week my coupon stash is getting back under control. It will be nice to have a break.

      It's funny to read everyone's comments. Sounds like we all have a love-hate relationship with coupons! :)

    • sarahrhine

      We were notified that in Tampa FL, we will be getting a General Mills insert.

    • RobinB78

      What a sad sad weekend this will be! Whatever will I do with my extra time???

    • Suzanne

      At first I was sad but….that will give me a week to get caught up with the old ones! yeah!

      • Loveeveryone

        Me too! Sometimes I get so far behind I have to throw them away. Man, I hate that!

    • henry

      i buy the paper to red not to clip

    • henry

      i buy a paper to READ not to clip

      • AMBRIELLE

        MAYBE “YOU” DONT NEED THE C-L-I-P-S SOME PPL DO!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Christina

        My local paper publishes all its content online as well as in print. Just because some folks don't read a hard-copy paper, doesn't mean we don't read the same news!

    • Mom2teenagers

      I confirmed with the Charlotte Observer circulation manager that there is a General Mills insert planned for this weekend with a total value of $13.

    • Theresa

      awwwwww! =(

    • You might get some coupons this weekend. The Courier Journal will have a $12 coupon General Mills insert this weekend. It has Suze Orman on the front and back.

    • princesskristin

      There is a single, 6 page insert from General Mills. It looks like the same coupons we get from them.

    • Donna

      So glad I checked before I headed out to church and grocery shopping!!!! Thanks for posting!

    • kim

      The 5/30 Columbus, GA Ledger Enquirer has a small SmartSource insert with General Mills coupons -front says “Save $12 Now”

    • April

      I had to come check. I got my paper this morning and the Lifestyle section was on the outside and the RedPlum and SmartSource were missing, I thought somebody had gone through my paper and taken my coupons!

    • justoleme

      We did get the $12 General Mills insert in the Greenville News delivery today.

    • Mary_P

      Hey, I looked and I got General Mills coupons so i went ahead and bought a few papers. Mostly cereal and yogart coupons! front states $12 in savings!

    • Teri

      The State newspaper in Columbia, SC has coupon inserts.

    • Lynn

      There is one small coupon insert in my local paper- The Savannah Morning News. There is a coupon for Betty Crocker Brownies and they are on special at Kroger this week.

    • Mama

      Thanks, I was glad to get the heads up! It occurred to me later that I could have put a one-day “stop” on my subscription. I DO read the paper, and enjoy it very much, but the main reason I get it (Sunday only) is for the inserts. I would love to know what future holiday papers will not have inserts – can anyone tell me? Next time I will skip those papers.
