  • Unfortunately, the freebie well ran dry earlier this year and that's no longer done
  • Still, it just makes you feel yucky and dirty after thumbing through an issue
  • It's a great source for learning about garage sales, too, but that's become a bit of a business for them now and I disagree with the charge they now make

      The Penny Saver has been around for many years now. It’s a way for people to advertise, sometimes for free and sometimes for a small price. It also is a good way for local neighborhood businesses to advertise to a confined area.

      The negatives for the Penny Saver is that as with


      all businesses, they have to survive and that means changes that aren’t also in keeping with either its original mandate and as helpful as it once was to the residents. For a long time, they ran a ‘freebie’ item, where a business gave a freebie to anyone bringing in a coupon. As a consumer, that was fun. Unfortunately, the freebie well ran dry earlier this year and that’s no longer done.

      I also don’t like the cheap newsprint but then that’s probably how they can publish for free. Still, it just makes you feel yucky and dirty after thumbing through an issue.

      The positives ...

      include that it is a good way to see what local businesses have to offer. I’ve found the places to take my car for inexpensive smog checks in the Penny Saver for several years via ads in the paper. You can also advertise very cheap items free.

      It’s a great source for

      learning about garage sales, too, but that’s become a bit of a business for them now and I disagree with the charge they now make.

      Overall, though, the Penny Saver serves a purpose in uniting local neighborhood businesses with consumers. I hope that as the economy improves, so might the specialness of each edition.
