As a reminder, the value of the coupons that you find in your newspaper may vary from the value in the provided link! In addition, all of the stores in my area double coupons up to $.99 (so a $.75 coupon has a value of $1.50). If the stores in your area don’t double or your paper is more expensive, you may not find the coupons as valuable as I do!
Check out Sunday Coupon Preview for the complete listing of coupons. There should be 3 inserts this week: a SmartSource, a Redplum and a Proctor & Gamble insert.

Coupons of Note
:: SmartSource Coupons
Banana Boat $1/1 Sun Care product 4oz+ excludes lip balm: the sunscreen deals are starting again, so this coupon should come in handy
Chock full o’Nuts $.75/1 package: this goes on sale Buy 1 Get 1 Free all the time. Hold on to this coupon for one of those sales to maximize your savings
FoodSaver appliance coupon: use this coupon to get a Foodsaver for less than $10 at Walmart

Post Grape Nuts and Shredded Wheat coupons ($1/1 each): these are usually $1/2 coupons
Not in the “official list”, but in my SmartSource insert (may be regional): Target coupons for Tide and Gain (these can be stacked with manufacturers coupons to increase your savings), $1/1 Green’s Ice Cream coupon (goes on sale for $2-$2.50), coupons for Raid & Off products (along with sunscreen deals, deals on bug-control products are coming back)
:: RedPlum Coupons
Superpretzel $1/1 product: goes on sale for $2 or less
Turkey Hill $1/2 half-gallon+ drinks: I love me some Turkey Hill Diet Green Tea!
:: Proctor & Gamble Coupons
There is a $1/1 Tide coupon and a $3/2 Pantene coupon, but other than that, it is pretty boring
So how many copies of the paper would I buy?
If I were building a stockpile: 3-4 (as long as the SmartSource includes the “extra” coupons that I mentioned)
Now that I am in stockpile-maintenance mode: 2-4 (as long as the SmartSource includes the “extra” coupons that I mentioned)
Eh – I didn’t want to spend Mother’s Day clipping a bunch of coupons anyway……
