Coupon insert reminders on dates

Depending on your method to organize your coupons writing the date on the main insert is a good idea. If you follow Fistful of Coupons, like I do, then you'll know Karrie has an organization tip that I like and use. However, my problem is remembering to write the date on the inserts and then wondering what the date was.

Well on the back of each insert near the "spine", in very fine print, the date and regional information is printed. The Smart Source inserts for the Tri-Cities also distributed to the following areas:

Coeur D'Alene Press
Kellogg - Shoshone News-Press
La Grande - Observer
Moses Lake - Columbia Basin Herald
Kennewick, Richland Pasco - Tri-City Herald
Walla Walla Union-Bulletin
Sandpoint Bonner County Daily Beel
Yakima Herald-Republic
Colville Stateman Examiner
Hermiston Herald
Moscow-Pullman Daily News

The Red Plum inserts are distributed to the following:
Kennewick, Richland Pasco - Tri-City Herald
Yakima Herald-Republic
Spokane Spokesman-Review

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!
