Another cost-saving tip for these difficult times

After reading Ms. Cheap's column in The Tennessean, I decided to cancel my newspaper subscription -- as she advised -- and just went to Walgreens on Sunday's to buy the newspaper on Sundays for the coupons.

The cost is only 99-cents.

But I found out something Ms. Cheap did not even know about. Don't buy the Sunday newspaper on Sunday. Wait until Monday, and you can get it for 50-cents. That's the policy at Walgreens and several other stores like it.

Some people might say that saving 50-cents is not worth the waiting. But multiply that sum by four times in a month and 52 times in a year, and we're talking about $26 a year.

That's a lot of money to me.
