Do I really need FIVE Sunday papers?

February 17, 2010 11 Comments

Yesterday I spent $32.76 on $112.59 worth of groceries, AND I will be getting back a $15 rebate in the mail. That is a total savings of $94.83 or almost 85%.

It was a good day of shopping!

But I’m not going to post pictures (mostly because the sale ended yesterday) or even breakdown how I did it. No, today I am going to show you how getting multiple copies of the Sunday paper made that savings possible.

Although I prepaid, the cost for 5 Sunday papers and 1 daily paper is $3 a week (because I am getting the Fabulessly Frugal newspaper deal!!). In last Sunday’s paper we received just 1 insert. That is rare. The number of inserts varies, but we have seen as many as 6 inserts in 1 Sunday! So keep in mind when I am laying out my savings using JUST last Sunday’s paper, I am giving you the bare bones, 1-insert scenario. Your savings multiply with the number of inserts received!

Cost for 1 week of newspapers: $3

Savings from just 1 week of newspapers: $34!

$18 in Albertson’s double coupon savings (1 set on Wednesday and 5 sets on Sunday)

$5 in Starkist Tuna coupons

$8 in Subway coupons (used 2 B1G1 coupons from 2 inserts)

$3 in Olay coupons

And that is just from 1 Red Plum insert! Can you imagine if each paper had 3, 4 or even 5 inserts? Well many times they do.

With my 1 week of savings, I could almost pay for 13 weeks of my newspaper subscription!!

So what are you waiting for? 1 kid, 8 kids or no kids under your roof, it is absolutely worth it!
