I only buy two.

(I'm not a hoarder. Heh heh.)

Two gives you two coupons for good deals on BOGO's... and other than that, it is always enough. I also check the inserts online before. There are some weeks I know for a fact there isn't a single coupon inside that I would use, even if all the products in there were totally free. So I skip those weekends.

I post the weekly inserts in the forum every week.  That way, you can see what coupons are going to be in the paper BEFORE buying it.

Do you know deals that will be going on also for those coupons? The sunday paper here is $2 & if I did see something I like in the inserts, I'm afraid there won't be any feals on it & it'll expire. Then I would've wasted $ buying a bunch of papers lol.

I have no way of knowing your local deals.  Stores and locations do their own things.  I get a weekly newsletter from my local grocery store.  Have you checked to see if your local stores have websites and newsletters?
