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 2 inserts this week: a SmartSource and a Redplum

Coupons of Note
:: SmartSource Coupons
Coppertone coupons: there will be plenty of great deals on sunscreen in the upcoming weeks
Heinz $.25/1 tomato ketchup: the only time they ever put out coupons is pretty much May- August (when there will be good sales). Stock up on your ketchup on the cheap this summer
Kraft $1/2 dressings or sizzling salads dinner kits: the small bottles of dressing will go on sale for $1 to $1.25 in the next few weeks
Maruchan $.50/1 Yakisoba product: these sodium-laced “meals” go on sale for $1 all the time, making them FREE after doubled coupon
Sweet Baby Ray’s $1/2 barbecue sauce: use this coupon to get it for $0.49 at Acme this week
:: RedPlum Coupons
some semi-decent Suave coupons and a nice Degree coupon, but other than that, not so great!
So how many copies of the paper would I buy?
If I were building a stockpile: 2-3
Now that I am in stockpile-maintenance mode: 2-3
It’s a boring week. I will probably only want 1 copy of the Redplum, and will get 2 copies of the paper that carries the “good Smartsource” (which is also the paper that doesn’t carry the Redplum)
