Saving Money In Small Ways - My Latest Attempt

At one point I subscribed to our local papers, the Vancouver Sun and the Province, six days a week for both papers (it started with one of those free trial offers, and then I just started paying because I'm kind of a in-print reading junkie ;)

But hey, that's a whole lotta reading when you have two kids constantly climbing on you, so I cut back to the Sun six days, and the Province on one day, so that I'd at least get a paper every day.

That was fine for awhile, but I've noticed lately that the papers have been piling up. I have a problem tossing papers I've PAID for until I've read them, but it was to the point where I had to do just that (cringe).

So now I've cut back even further (drum roll): I'll be getting the Sun on Fridays and Saturdays only, with the Province being Sundays only. Less $$$ spent, and hopefully now I'll be able to actually read them, too!

Look at it this way: if you cut the coupons you get in the Sunday paper, you will cover the weekly cost of the paper easy. Find the trade-off my friend!
