    • Bee

      Well, looks like I'll be drowning in kool-aid.:)

    • Danielle

      My husband uses the Right Guard spray and Rite Aid has BOGO every couple of months and this makes it FREE!!!!

      • Kaiuni

        They actually will have it this week! Yay for u!

      • Serattcoupons

        I think Walgreens will be running this sale, too.

    • Trippteacher

      I subscribed to the greenville news a few weeks ago and go two papers delivered on Mon/Tues in the mail without the coupon inserts. WHen we called they said we would not be getting them. Anyone else have that problem? I even had a conversation with the customer service rep about why I was ordering two and nothing was mentioned about not getting them.

      • Amandae21

        Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're saying, but coupons come out in the Sunday paper. If a newspaper offers an “early edition” on Saturday, you can get them then, but those aren't delievered to homes, at least not where I live.

      • amy

        I actually bought a paper at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago so that I could get the coupons but there were no coupons in it. Only the sales ads were in there. I thought maybe someone had taken them out of the paper that I bought so I went back to the store the next weekend and looked in a couple of them before I bought it and they did not have coupons either. Has anyone heard of areas not putting coupons in the Sun. paper anymore?

        • Brigid39

          Was it the weekend before president's day? I also went to buy a paper for the inserts and there was none. Another lady told me that sometimes before or after a holiday they don't have the coupons in the sunday paper. Hope this helps.

          • MFamMom

            Jenny will post during the week before there are no inserts in the Sunday paper…just follow this blog closely and she will keep you informed!!!

        • Spraymom

          Yes, read my earlier post above….I'm very upset about it….

        • Shuterbugg

          In myrtle beach i was told only so many inserts are allotted per area and they go in the subscription papers first…whatevers left gets distributed after that…

      • bmp

        I have had trouble with the Greenville News including coupons, but only for the copies I would buy occasionally at Walgreens. Once I subscribed to the weekly delivery, I've always received my copy with coupons (btw, I've been able to return the paper to Walgreens later in the day after I realized that it didn't include the coupons).

        • Spraymom

          Read my earlier post…..

    • PC

      I see $1 off Dial Nutriskin lotion coupon coming!!!

      I just bought this lotion the other day and love it!! I bought the one with purple on the bottle. I can't wait to stack this coupon!!

      • Kaiuni

        I agree the lotion is great! The hubby loves them men version!

        • Katkoupon

          Thanks! I didn't know there even was a men's version!

      • Ssmithet

        And CVS will have it for 4.99 with $3 ecb – add the $1 coupon and you get a real deal. but a couple of weeks ago the insert had a $2 coupon – that's free.

    • ????

      all my Smart Source coupons print w/o a bar code…any idea why?

      • Robin

        you may need to update java

    • breeze

      does anyone know krogers sale starting sunday

    • breeze

      I think every paper has sunday coupons. I have never known of them not to.a store i go to has had a couple of papers missing coupons but it wouldnt surprise me if someone wasnt taking them out now i always check before i buy

      • Bee

        I buy mine where the cashier is three feet away from them and I still have to check. She told me people still take them out.

    • Skicote

      I am a beginner here. Looking at these coupons, I don't see how to make the leap to paying nothing at the grocery store. What is the next step?

      • Thecouponpops

        My experience was that it took about 5-8 weeks of inserts (remember to use internet coupons too!) to get enough variety to save big on my groceries/pharmacy items. I now routinely save 60-90% at the stores. It takes time to build up your coupons, get organized, and learn how it all works. Stick around….it's definately worth it!!! :)

        • kori

          matching the coupons to store sales is important. and she does that all on here. pick one store and start small while you are learning. it's especially fun at the drug stores where they give back store $ for some items, plus you use a coupon with that and get lots of things free!!

      • Kristen

        The first thing I did (in addition to collecting coupons and figuring out an organization system) was to start a price list of items that I routinely buy. Whenever an item goes on sale, record the new price. Do this every week for about 6 weeks, and then you'll have a comprehensive list of the lowest prices of items you buy. That's the price you shoot for in conjunction with coupons.

        I keep all my coupons in baseball card sleeves in a notebook, organized by aisle. The first page on the notebook is my price list (until I'm really comfortable with prices). The thing that's going to throw you off for the next couple of weeks is the quickly rising food prices. Good luck! :)

      • Lanavdixon

        I don't think any of us are paying 'nothing' at the grocery store. Sometimes I can get 80% off my bill but that is the best I can do since I buy produce and meat.

    • Michelle

      The Redplum coupon insert for this Sunday says 3/06….While the Smartsource one says 3/13…..Will we get the redplum this week, or was that last Sunday?

      • Papercents

        I'm confused too – I think the wrong list got posted
        I went to another website and found totally different coupons for the 03/13 Redplum

    • Spraymom

      I talked to a guy selling the Chattanooga Times at Bilo the other day and he said that in the next month they are going to STOP putting coupons in the Sunday papers that are for sell in the stores….they are only putting them in the papers that are delivered to your house….so I signed up for extra home delivery papers on Sundays….He said the reason for this is because people are stealing the coupons out of papers and putting them all in the one paper they are buying!! It's people like this that RUIN IT FOR ALL OF US……

      • Crystalchuckgracie

        i get the Chattanooga times too and our coupons are not very good. so i order mine from http://www.wholecouponinserts.com or http://www.couponingfromchester.com/
        i get WAY MORE COUPONS THAT WAY. for example if the chatt red plum has 15 coupons, theirs may have 40 or more. they come from Virgina and Florida.

      • Kenzbug

        Seriously? They say one bad apple spoils the bunch. I hope they don't do that here in GA.

        • chirogirl

          Me too! Esp for those of who live in rural area that the AJC WON”T deliver/mail to! Only one store in my entier county sells this paper and it's for $3.00 instead of $1.50 like smaller Sun papers who infrequently carrier Smart Source inserts.

      • Crystal

        Hmmmmm….interesting. I am a former employee of the CTFP. I know my Mom and friends live outside of Chattanooga and although they get a paper delivered there are never coupons in those papers because they put them in the papers that are going to Chattanooga residents and then work their way out. Maybe that will enable my Mom and friends to now get the coupons in their paper. Although it will suck not being able to go buy extras at the store for inserts. I'm in Nashville now, and although I live on the outskirts I never have a problem getting my coupons.

      • Bbrannan

        Was that for all of Tennessee? I live near Nashville . . .

      • SC333

        That is interesting, they did the same thing only with the grocery ads themselves too. The paper did not know anything about it when I spoke to them. I was not sure if it were a gimmick to make us buy the paper. I buy my Sunday paper for 98 cents so it seems a rip off to me. Its wrong to steal and Im not sure if the people stealing are the ones buying. If it continues I may be visiting coupon clippers more often…less expensive than the paper…just needs timing.

    • kori

      is there an easy way to print this list each week? i don't have a phone that i can look up the database while in the store. it would be handy to have a copy of what's in all of the inserts each week to put in with my coupons.

      • Kristen

        Just copy from the blog and print on a word doc. You may need to reformat a little, but it works fine.

      • If I were you I'd wait until Jenny posts the lists of the coupons in each individual paper- because they are all slightly different. The title is something like “Coupon Variations”

    • Moms-coupons

      Hi Jenny!
      Not that you don't have plenty to do, but I have a suggestion. Can the coupon preview list be formatted the same as the store sales lists, so that items can be checked off? This way, considering regional variations, we could each compare our inserts to your list, check off the ones we do have, then use the print list feature and add the ones we may have gotten that are not listed, or were for a different value.
      It will have it's limitations, since you won't be able to sort, but it will give those of us without “smartphones” a quick reference list to put in our binders with that week's inserts and use while shopping, or to compare when using the coupon database.
      Maybe take a vote, see if there is enough people interested to make it worth the time to change the post's format?
      Thanks for your time and consideration…while I do peruse other savings blogs, this one is my go-to blogwhen it's time to get down to shopping :)

      • Runlisarun

        I agree with this suggestion!!! :)

      • MFamMom

        Most variations are included when she posts on Wednesdays–you can print the list for your specific paper.

    • Lori

      *sigh* I'm getting tired of air freshener and Pillsbury crescent rolls. I need a few good FOOD inserts!

    • Allyson

      Bought early edition AJCs today. Both of my papers only had RP. No SS. Boo…

      Anyone else?

      • Ssmithet

        Huh, I had the opposite problem. Got the early edition as I do every Saturday and only had the SmartSource, no Redplum. I'll have to check them on this.

        • Juli

          I have been to 3 places and all early editions only have SS…no RP. stinks!

      • Christy

        I had the same problem. I sent my husband to get 8 papers, specifically for the Herbal Essence BOGO coupon in the SS insert. I ended up with 8 RP inserts and only 1 SS.

    • Mary

      I wish Pillsbury would give some coupons for the Toaster Scrambles, my kids love them! Pillsbury always put outs the strudels coupons. Want some Jif & little debbie coupons too! LOL

    • Bee

      Went to the convenience store down the road and the paper had SS and RP. Our SS also had the B1G1 Herbal Essences coupon.

      I only bought one there since I wanted to use RR to pay for others. I went to Wag's and actually paid for 2 papers (way my RR deals ended up). Anyway, the Wag's papers had only SS, so I took them back.

      I went to Kroger and they had both inserts in their papers.

      I am getting tired of the inconsistencies. I don't think anyone had been stealing the inserts from the Wag's papers unless it was the people who stuff them. I had to remove the binding.

      I don't understand how there can be enough inserts to sell if there aren't enough to put in all the papers. Something stinks. One of these days someone is actually going to prosecute the coupon sellers. On many coupons, even trading/transferring is considered fraudulent.

      • MFamMom

        Most sellers include in their listings that you aren't PAYING for the coupons, you are paying for their time of collecting, clipping and shipping them to you.

    • Ambertheprincess99

      Check them before you buy them for your inserts. Write AJC. They gave me some junk about being short on inserts. Make your voice heard.

      • Coughlinorama

        I'm glad you said that – there weren't ANY RP or SS in my Sunday AJC today – I'm bringing it back to Publix tomorrow

    • Mollieirene

      I'm disappointed in the inserts this week. Very few coupons for “real food” and a bunch for household items. My kids and husband do like the Pillsbury rolls, but I have 6 cans in the fridge now.
      Oh well…..maybe next week. :)

    • Terrayfic

      I c/p the list and go thru them myself and change them. It makes it easier for me since ours are usually so much different than what others have.

      • Kjshea

        Thanks so much!! This list is almost identical to the Huntsville coupon list.

        • Shortgalal

          I did not got any Smart Source inserts in my Huntsville papers. Did you?

          • Terrayfic

            I live in Bham and I don't get the paper. We can opt for a free YES supplement, which I get and only has the SS insert. I have lots of family that gives me their inserts.

        • Terrayfic

          I only get the SS on Sundays. I get the RP later in the week so can't compare it. When I type them in, I put the $sign in front, others are just dragged from the other list

    • Tee

      The Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches are supposed to be BOGO at Publix this coming flyer!! $1 off q should put them around $2.25 box of 8 mini sandwiches.

    • Tammy

      hello, the red plum was missing some coupons. buy1 get1 right guard deodorant or body wash. did anyone recieve one?

    • Spikeshouse

      The paper I got today only had the red plum insert.

      • jb30520

        Mine too. UGH!

      • Aruthsatz

        That is what I thought but I went through the entire paper and the SmartSource insert was hiding in a new fold…

    • Aklholl

      Does anyone know the price of Viva paper towels at Kroger? Just checking to see if the .40/1 coupon is a good deal. thank you!

    • Heather

      Is there somewhere to print Smartsource coupons like you get out of the papers?

      • Tonya

        You can go to the smartsource website or you can go to couponmom.com. You are able to view and print all the coupons you want from there.

    • germangirl

      Is there any place you can buy only the inserts from? My paper only had the RP again.

    • Tiffygator71

      Gainesville Sun…didn't have ANY!!! :(

    • Debby Mantell

      No coupons in my Sunday Paper as well. I am in SWFL so I get the news press. Anyone have the same proble with them? I am just starting out as well so was disappointed that the paper did not have coupons.

    • Michelle

      I live in the Beaufort, SC area. I wanted the eggo waffle coupons REALLY bad! Bought a Beaufort Gazette and only got a VERY thin packet of SS. I also bought a Charleston Post and Courier….Got a really thick SS and a RP. So, I sent my husband back for another Post and Courier……AND STILL no eggo coupons…..UGGGHHHHH!!!!!!

      • Breeren14

        i live in beaufort too…we dont get the coupons…i have to buy 3 different kind of news paper…i wonder if theres a way to get old coupons

        • MFamMom

          Find a coupon clipping service or buy them on ebay — usually well worth the purchase as most sellers group them in 10 or 20 of each coupon. I paid $2.90 for 40 coupons of current Publix Ad stuff and they will arrive well before the sales week ends. Look for “Buy it Now” listings with free shipping for the best deals and immediately shipment.

      • Mherrin5

        I would love to send you mine if I have them…

        • Michelle

          Thank you :) That would be GREAT! Let me know if you have them.

    • Ginny

      does anyone know how I can print out the purina one beyond 3.00 cat food coupon. It was in the 3/13/11 smart source insert but My paper was missing it. I would take 50 if I could get them
