Sunday Washington Post Cost increased to $2


This weekend I stopped at Bottom Dollar Food to get some groceries which I will write a post about later.

When I got there I planned to picking up an additional copy of the Washington Post.  However, the cost is $2!  Wow!   I was surprised.  I wasn’t sure if it was the store or the the paper.  They had a double deal sitting there so I lucked out and picked that up.  It turned out to be $3!

Here is an article about the change in price for the Sunday Washington Post.

Effective Dec. 13, the newsstand price for its Sunday paper will go from $1.50 to $2 in Washington.

I now need to check my bill and find out how much they are charging me for home delivery.   I might have to cancel and pick up the paper if the cost is more than that.

I might even start thinking of ordering inserts online.   What do you think?

What paper do you pick up?

P&Gbrand Everyday Solutions – Get coupons and samples!


I was looking closely at the P&G brand Saver for this week and discovered that it has some pretty good coupons for our area.  For example the $1.00 off Bounty paper towels are for 1 multi pack or 2 any size and there is a $1.00 off Iams cat food.   Several others are pretty good too.

I then did a search for other coupons that are P&G products and came across the P&G Sample and Coupon Everyday Solutions website.  Click HERE to sign up for samples and coupons.

If I understand it correctly each month about this time you can login and then select samples and coupons that you would like.  This is great!

Let me know what coupons and samples you like or that you found recently.

Why you should buy a Sunday 8/9/09 Washington Post this week.


I was thinking about the Red Plum coupons and the reason I buy the Washington Post each week.  Currently, I have a subscription and will be canceling it soon since I don’t have a weekly discount anymore.  Instead I will go to the store and get the Sunday Double Deal on Sundays.  There will be some Sundays I might not be interested in getting it, like the Holidays don’t have coupons.  So, in the long run I will save by only buying the ones that I want.  There are some Sundays that it makes sense to buy more than one or more than two.  I will try and write a post on Saturdays to say if it makes sense to buy the paper or not.

This week you should!  Sunday 8/9 Washington Post has coupons and a lot more.
