if you are wondering why the paper costs twice as much at one store, i do not know... they all say $1.50 on the cover so i am in no position to complain.

i make a point of checking to make sure the newspapers have the coupon inserts before i buy them. one of my papers was missing the red plum insert, but had 3 p&g inserts. i said "fair enough."
