Sunday Coupon Preview - Why Bother?

I've been asked why I bother doing a Sunday coupon preview. Can't we just wait to see which coupons will appear in our papers? I have two reasons for doing previews.

First, if you buy your papers on Sunday, you need to look through them BEFORE you check out. Verify that the expected inserts are in each paper you're buying. There's nothing more frustrating than making a run for newspapers and finding that one of them has a missing insert. If you realize this BEFORE you buy them, you can choose another paper.

Second, I like to do some of my deal shopping on Sunday, especially if there are really good CVS deals available. Knowing which coupons to expect in my Sunday paper may change a CVS scenario.

This week, you can expect two inserts, a SmartSource and a Red Plum. There are some good coupons in them too. Head over HERE to see what's going to be in each insert this weekend.

And may I add, the Sunday review helps me since I but my papers on saturday. there are sometimes coupons in the insert i can use that saturday, which is the last day of most store sales.

I love the coupon preview I am a planner so it helps me even though my region often does not get slot of the high dollar coupons.
