Coupon Source #1

The newspaper.

Obviously I am partial to the Watertown Daily Times.

I get the Sunday paper even on the weekends of national holidays when there are no coupon inserts in any papers. On those Sundays, I buy the paper for the store circulars alone. Not only do I then have the circulars for all the local stores on hand for the week (which I look at several times per week as I come across new coupons), I find the best deals for local stores (like liquor stores, discount stores and other locally-owned stores) as well as restaurants. I usually comb through every page of the paper and all the inserts looking for barcodes and dollar signs (and sunbursts – those are always fun to look at) to keep an eye out for local bargains.

    Hello. I recently just came across your blog. Been looking for coupon blogs in Watertown area. I’m from Clayton. :) I was wondering (if you subscribe to the paper) can you only get it on sunday? When I looked into it, I got mixed answers… Some said that you had to buy all week & weekend. Some said you could get the sunday paper only. Do you have any insight on this?

    Thanks!

      I buy my Sunday papers at the gas station down the road from me (meaning, my husband gets it AND a box of donuts for us before I even drag myself out of bed on Sundays), so I don’t know the answer to your question for sure. If I remember correctly, they have weekend delivery (Saturday and Sunday, as opposed to just Sunday) and 7-day delivery. But to be sure, I would call their circulation department. You can find the number here.

        Alrighty. Thanks for letting me know. Usually drive down to Depauville and grab the paper (cutting the coupons while someone else drives). Will look into it again. :]
