I use newspaper, too. the same philosophy Jenny mentioned "we allready get it, and its just going to get pooped on"
My first budgie, Morrie, had a cage that was the exact size and shape as a local paper here that we didn't get because of its politics/trashiness, but since it was a perfect size, i would go pick one up in the evening sometimes from one of the street vendors- they would hand them out for free by the end of the day, just to get rid of the ones that didn't sell. It was a joke in the family for a while that we regularly subscribed to that paper so the bird could poop on it.
Now both my birds have cages that aren't the size of any particular newspaper, so i use the leftover newspaper we really do subscribe to, but have to fold it in crazy ways to get it to fit.
