Maybe you could try something like this to cut back on your costs

This is a wonderful idea!

I haven't found a good gas station in my current area but there was a Royal Farms that opened where I used to live. I asked the manager a day or two after they opened, she says she would ask the paper guy but never did. About two weeks later I happened to be there at the same time as the paper guy. He said I could have the inserts out of any paper that was still there on Monday morning if I beat him in. The only rule was it had to be Monday. The store wasn't friendly about it but couldn't say anything since they got their credit. I made sure to be there way before him on Mondays. Some days I would arrive to find none, other days as many as 12. It was wonderful! I only bought papers if I got there and there were none. In that case I went another 10 miles toward work and bought at a Wawa that sold Sunday papers until Tuesdays. If you can find a gas station or delivery person it is awesome!

If theirs only 1 or 2 coupons I want I order em from a clipping site, if its a good week than I will buy like 5-10 papers papers here r 1.75 so for coupon makes more since just paying for 10-20 of that coup on a clipping site than a bunch of imserts or papets

Thank you for the advice but unfortunately my area isn't to coupon friend. The starbucks in my area donate their coupons to a organization and the gas stations give them back to the newspaper which I then buy from the newspaper. I went to the gas station to try and get the coupons before they sent them back and the guy had to nerve to try to get me to pay full price for the paper. No thanks I told him. .
