Star News vs. News and Observer

This week marks the first Sunday of the month (since May begins next week) and that means one thing- loads of coupons!

There could be up to four inserts (coupon booklets) in each paper today- a Red Plum, Smart Source, Proctor and Gamble, and Pepsi Moments to Save. Let's take a look at what I actually found in each newspaper.

Keep in mind that these results are regional and can even vary by city. The newspaper companies themselves have been telling us that the only way they can guarantee coupons is if you subscribe; otherwise the coupons may or may not all be there, due to many factors such as theft or omission. Unfortunately, at this time, Southeastern NC residents cannot subscribe to the Raleigh News and Observer; so, we just have to do our best to get up early and get it in the store on Sunday mornings! Be sure to check the paper before you leave, as there is no more annoying feeling than getting home and realizing there are no coupons inside.

Let's take a look at what coupons came in each newspaper today!

I did not receive a Proctor and Gamble insert in either of the papers today, so I will either order it online at or, or go grab it for free in the local Encore or AdPack magazines.

What coupons did you find this morning? Which coupons excite you the most?!

Until next week......
