Pay It Forward - Be a Coupon Fairy

Be a Coupon Fairy - Leave a coupon behind!
When you don't have use for a coupon, leave it on the shelf by the item for which it is intended.

I've been on a "Coupon Fairy" mission lately. My mother in-law has been doing so much for me and my husband. She is allowing us to move into her place since we are living off my husband's part-time job. So . . . my newly found knowledge of couponing just got my mother in-law 32 free boxes of 4C drink mix sticks. Since these are $5.99 or so a box (depending on where we get them), I just saved her about $190 and she won't have to buy any for a long time.

I will be continuing to stock her on things she needs at cheaper or possibly free prices. This is something she hasn't asked for, but I just feel like I need to do something if I'm not working.

Wait, I have one more story (sorry so long) . . .

With all the free school supplies at CVS, I just couldn't let them pass. I've decided to get them all using my ECB's and then I will be giving them to a friend of mine who is a teacher. Anything she doesn't need will go to a donation for school supplies when I can find a place to do so.

Those are my ways of being a coupon fairy. :D

I agree with Megan! I do the same thing by giving away stockpile items that I think people can use. When I go to someones house, I usually bring a gift bag with items I know they can use! It is so fun to be a giver!

I almost always leave behind a coupon that I won't be using. When shopping at Hobby Lobby I print up an extra coupon in case I see someone that might need one. I've also left them with the cashier for someone to use later on. When in Joann's or Michael's I give away my coupon if my item is already on sale. I love seeing a person's face when you give them that coupon, too. Something so simple just might change the course of their day. :-)

I do this too. My 14 year old son laughs at me. In good fun, though.
He thinks the whole "Coupon Fairy" name is just hilarious.

Someone has been on a major coupon fairy mission in my local Publix. They've gone through the ENTIRE store and taped coupons to darn near every item I look at! I love it and have used "her" coupons several times when I didn't have one of my own available. I hope to have some free time where I can play the coupon fairy one day soon!
