About a year ago we began subscribing to my local Sunday newspaper for the coupons. The first month was great; we recouped the monthly cost of the subscription in one week. Unfortunately for several months we haven’t been able to recover the cost of the subscription. The majority of the coupons are for items we don’t need every month. I also think our strategy of buying in bulk is hampering the coupon game because of the size specifications most coupons have. So, the new strategy will be browsing weekly ads for grocery and drug stores and ditching the Sunday paper.
