Star News Vs. News and Observer

Good morning!

This week I found both a Red Plum and a Smart Source in each city's newspaper. Let's take a look at which newspaper had the best coupons.

This week I found a Red Plum and a Smart Source insert in both the Raleigh and Wilmington paper. Let's take a look to see specifically which coupons came in each newspaper.

As you can see, Raleigh did have more coupons (black); however, Wilmington had a fair amount of coupons that were also included in the Raleigh paper (blue). Also, there were a couple of products that were only in the Wilmington paper this time (red). If you really want the Clorox, Wisk, Snuggle or Hartz Shampoo for dogs, you should also buy the Wilmington Paper. If you do not care for those coupons, the Raleigh paper will do, since it had all the other coupons in it and more.

 Need to organize all those coupons? Check out our binders here! They are the BEST organizational system around for couponing!
 Red Plum Insert

Raleigh Newspaper Only- Black; Both Papers- Blue Wilmington Only- Red

Honeybaked Ham Store Coupons, Olay Body Wash, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt, Axe Shower Gel or Detailer, Pond's Cream, Towelettes or Cleansing Products, Ponds Wet Towelettes, Tums, Garnier Fructis, Neutrogena, Kibbles n Bits, Snausages or Snaw Somes Dog Snacks, Milo's Kitchen Dog Treats, Good n Natural Bars, Hamover Baked Beans, Land o Frost, Sandwich Meat or Sub Kits, Loreal Shades of Excellence, Luigis Italian Ice or Frozen Novelty Products, Dogster's Ice Cream for Dogs, Vanity Fair Napkins, Pop-Tarts Mini Crisps, Pop Tarts, Kelloggs, Brawny Paper Towels, Dean's Heat n Dip, Deans Dips, Domino Light Sugar Products, Kroger Vitamins Coupons, Hardees Coupons, Kings Hawaiian Dinner Rolls, Dermasilk

As you can see, the Wilmington Red Plum was fairly lacking. It had about half the coupons as the Raleigh Red Plum and only contained one coupon that wasn't found in the Raleigh paper- the Kings Hawaiian Dinner Rolls.

I was impressed with the selection of coupons. I bought two Raleigh papers and one Wilmington paper.

Note: It is Super Doubles week at Harris Teeter and I found many $2 and under that will double through Tuesday night! A couple that caught my eye are the Brawny paper towels (on sale this week at HT and they will be $3.77 after coupon), Deans Dips (free, I think), and Lubriderm Lotion ($2 off will double to $4 off). There may well be many others; I'm going to go shopping today and will let you know if I find some great deals!

Until next week......!
