There are other creative ways of getting coupons besides buying your local Sunday paper. One way is to contact the companys that make your favorite brands. Another way is to just sign up for coupons from the people that print your local inserts!
P&G is one of the inserts you will find almost every week in your Sunday paper and you can go directly to their website to sign up for really nice coupon deals and samples that will arrive directly in your snail mail mailbox. This week I got a free sample of Purex Complete with Zout + a coupon booklet. Alot of the times the coupons they send are even better than the ones you can find in your paper!
