Reader Question: Locating Coupon Dates

Reader Joanne asked about an easy way to find out when a coupon insert was released.

I get coupons from various sources. I have my friends and family collect coupons for me and I pick them up throughout the month. I love being able to get coupons from different areas but I’m struggling to keep them organized! Their coupons don’t have the same cover pages and often have different coupons enclosed. I am a little behind on playing the match game to figure out which week these coupons are from!! Is there an easier way to figure out the dates?

Hi Joanne. Yes, there is a much easier way to locate the release date on your coupon inserts. On the spine of the coupon insert cover page (in very small print) is the release date and the publication (see pic).

About Penny Pincher
I'm a pet-mom to a sweet and sour Shih Tzu who loves a good deal or better yet...a GREAT freebie! I have always been a couponer however I discovered extreme couponing as a result of a job loss. I was laid off for over 15 months and survived by couponing! I realized that I could purchase quality products for a fraction of what I previously paid. I now tell everyone one who will listen about the hundreds of dollars that can be saved monthly by a little time devoted to researching deals and matching coupons with store sales.
