Tuesday’s Tip Jar – Read Your Local Paper/Pennysaver

March 10, 2009 at 10:55 pm 1 comment


Each week, we receive a free local newspaper though the mail each Tuesday. And normally, on Wednesday or Thursday, we have another free local paper delivered to our driveway. For years, I rarely read either of them and just tossed them into the recycling bin. Recently, I have been looking through them and have found them to be very useful.

There are ads for local businesses. Before I go shopping, I like to check ads, to see if it is worth my time to go to certain stores. Many local stores do not have websites, so this is the only way I can view the ad.

There are always announcements for local events – by reading this paper, I am more aware of what is going on in my community, and can also take advantage of free events or other events my family can enjoy.

The back of the paper has the classified section. I always check the produce/edibles area to see if there are any great deals on produce or meat. I haven’t found any yet, but I think that will change as spring and summer draw closer. Yard/garage sales are also listed in this section of the paper. When I see something that I think would be nice to go to, I cut it out and put it on the fridge, then I can throw away the rest of the paper, instead of having the whole paper cluttering up my kitchen.

If you have a free local newspaper, take a few minutes to look through it. You may find some fun things to do, as well as great deals!

    We get a free local paper too and we also just chuck it in the recycle bin. I will take your advice and look through it next time. 🙂
