Paper a Good Investment

Make a great financial decision: Subscribe to the paper.

My husband and I moved to this area three years ago this coming week for his new medical job in Moore County. I immediately subscribed to the paper since we knew nothing about the area, and the paper was the most accurate information regarding the local communities and people.

We have continued to subscribe, not only for the articles, information, activity calendar, etc., but as a financial decision.

My degree is in finance, and I handle all the family funds. I have always been a coupon clipper, not a super clipper but saving around $10 a week on groceries/products we use. I recently saved 35 percent of my bill at Harris Teeter.

I noticed in cutting coupons today that I clipped $54.30 in savings, and left $135.25 still in the paper. The paper only costs $69.55 a year. It has saved me more than 10 times that cost this past year.

You don’t have to read eversy article, agree with everything written, but it is a very money-smart decision to get a “real” paper. Support your community newspaper and save your family some money.

I have heard many people say "I never read a newspaper I get everything I need to know from TV news" really, does TV news tell you about the new proposed cell phone tower to be built in your neighborhood. Does TV news tell you about the new child molester living in your town, the proposed hotel to be built. How many local available jobs are advertised on TV. There is no better way to get local and national news than your local paper. I only wish we could get the Pilot everyday, The other daily paper in our area is lacking in content except for the Sunday ads.

The internet is great but you can't live your life based on what you read on Facebook or Twitter or Fox News.
