Where can I get a big stack of newspapers for free/cheap? Or other garden mulch substrate.

We used newspapers under rice straw as a garden mulch last year and it was the best solution we have ever used to keep weeds down and conserve moisture. I should have done this in the fall, but now I need to get out and mulch our fairly large garden this weekend. The problem is we don't get the paper anymore, and I'm blanking on where to get a bunch of newspapers, other than cleaning out every stand in a two mile radius.
Where could I get a whole lot of them for free/cheap?
Also open to other low cost mulching solutions.
