Typically I buy 6 papers from Dollar Tree(only a buck, where every other place is 1.75 each)
I then remove all of the coupon inserts and put them in a folder labeled with the date of the insert. Once I find a sale, I see which insert I need to go into and cut out my coupons.
For those wondering why I buy so many here is why..
Most times, there are sales for multiple items. For example, an item might be on sale 3/6.00. Buy buying bulk inserts, I can stock up on a particular item for next to nothing when matched up with a sale. I haven't bought pasta in nearly a year since I've gotten it for free. The same goes for deodorant, body wash, shaving cream, razor etc. It def. makes it worthwhile to pay 6.00 for papers and get a ton of things for free or next to nothing :-)

Honestly, I rarely buy the paper. I usually only get it during the P&G Saver weeks. I do most of my couponing online. I know I'm not getting the multiples that many others get, but it works for us and the products we buy.
Thanks to Kiliki for my super cute siggy!

At one time, I was buying 30 a week and doing heavy trading. Now, I get 2. Sometimes if the coupons are really good, I'll get 4 or 6. Once in a while, I dumpster dive. I have a pretty good coupon connection. She knows what I like, and sends me oodles of the ones I'll use. She's actually pretty awesome.

My papers are 50 cents, btw, so I don't break the bank to even get 6.

Seems how I just started clipping coupons I only buy 1. That seems to do the job so far.

Our papers are $2.00 each, so I usually buy 1-2 depending on how good the coupons are. Lately, I haven't been buying any. Instead, I've been trading for multiple coupons or "buying" them online. This allows me to still get multiples of items I want, but I don't have to buy the paper and coupons I don't want.
