Sunday Coupon Preview

.This Sunday there will be a Smartsource, and a Red Plum insert in the newspaper. Check out Taylor Town Preview for a list of what coupons that you can expect. Please note that these may vary by region.

*The most asked questions that I get are about local newspaper inserts so here are a few answers:

How many papers should buy?

I personally buy 4-6 every Sunday depending on the amount/quality of coupons. This allows me to stock up on items that I find FREE or at rock bottom. If you can't afford to buy more than one newspaper, ask your friends/family/neighbors if you can have theirs.

Does The Advocate or Times Picayune have the best coupons?

There's no easy answer here. The Times Picayune generally has more coupons and it sometimes has the Redplum inserts that The Advocate does not contain (the RedPlum insert comes in the mail with the weekly store ads in the Baton Rouge area).

However, The Advocate does have the sought a…
