    I went to the Food Basics on Commissioners and Wonderland, they seem to have a surprising amount of tearpads.

    I went to Foodland in Glencoe, and they had really good coupons there. They have Dr. Oetker coupons. Buy 2 get 1 free any shirriff cooked pudding pie filling mix. Whiskas Cat coupons, and Kraft Pasta Salad coupons.

    I've come to realize that with the current demand because more folks are into couponing now, it's really a game of timing and luck. I found some tear pads at my local Metro for the first time in months, less than a week ago. I was back there today to get the 99c pop and every single pad was empty. When I left, there were almost full pads in each.

    I can almost understand people taking a full pad out of self-defense. It's so rare to find anything, that it's tempting to grab a ton because you know it will be your only opportunity. I was at the SDM on Commissioners near Highbury and the cashier had a stack of coupons near her checkout. I asked about them and she said they keep them because people take full pads of stuff. So that's what it's come to. Either great luck, nothing or getting them rationed out by a cashier.

    I agree with that!! I wonder if the Shoppers I usually go to is doing the same thing, I haven't see any there for a while now.

    Three weeks ago FB at Ernest was keeping the Dr Pepper coupons at the cashier too , I didn't ask because I found those in Freshco.

    Lately stores are out of tearpads:
    1.- for the season (June,July,aug.)
    2.-people empty them from shelves (mostly)

    I've rarely found a tearpad since last year when I started looking, and never in a grocery store. Just Shopper's. I don't even look anymore

    On another note, I'm in White Oaks and I had a door hanger this past Thursday, it was for Fructis, shampoo and conditioner. Haven't had one in a while, but I noticed someone had asked

    I start to couponing year ago, after 2 years to discover smartcanucks... before that I never pay attention to coupons, Now, even when you pay attention to coupons, there aren't lots in the shelves like the gold days like you said.

    found tearpads at FreshCo (Commissioners and Wellington) for the $1 off when you buy 4 Campbell's soup. There were 2 pads, hanging flush with the shelving right by the soup. I took a few but there was lots...now we wait for soup to go on for 59 cents.
    They also had 2 pretty good clearance carts.
