Sunday Coupon Preview July 3rd

Image
.
This Sunday there will be a P&G 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.

*ALWAYS make sure to check your papers for inserts before you purchase!!

After speaking to a representative for The Times Picayune, I've learned that most of the insert coupons are now going to people who have home delivery on their Sunday Papers. This may be why many of you aren't finding coupons in the papers available for sale in our area.

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

First of all, I would like to note that in my weekly Sunday Coupon Preview, I list the inserts that are available nationally. While I realize that both The Advocate and The Times-Picayune will/may not have all of the available inserts in them, I want to give you information about what's out there.

With that said, here are some questions that I would …

Vote LOUISIANA to Win the Better Homes & Gardens State Cookie Contest

Image

I was asked, by Better Homes and Gardens, to enter their State Cookie Contest using their awesome bakeware cookie sheet. I've written about it their bakeware before, and I still think it's some of the best out there!

I decided what better way to represent Louisiana than with Beignets and King Cake cookies. Now I need you to vote and show them that Louisiana has the best fans. It literally takes 5 seconds to vote and if WE win, not only will we have the achievement of being #1, but they'll give me something to give away to you!
