What To Do With Extra Coupons
I just wanted to give you a little tip on what you can do with all of those extra coupons that you are holding on to but have no use for.
You can trade them with others, or here is something else you can do:
Become a coupon fairy.
If you’re not familiar with the term “coupon fairy”, let me explain. Basically a coupon fairy is someone that takes all of their extra coupons and they walk up and down all the aisles of their local stores, leaving coupons on the shelves for other people to find and use.
Let’s say you have a coupon for Depends diapers and you don’t need that product. Walk down the aisle that carries those Depends diapers and leave the Depends coupons right in front of the product.
Now, the next person who goes to purchase those diapers will see those coupons and will be able to use them on their purchase (a purchase they were going to make anyway).
I definitely encourage this. I think it’s a great way to pay it forward with your couponing habits.
Of course, you could always pick up items yourself and donate them, but if you don’t have time for that, I suggest being a coupon fairy at least once.
A lot of people who do decide to do this actually bring their coupons out right around when they’re going to expire, just so that they don’t have to throw them out. This is what I usually do as well.
Please consider giving this a try. If you have coupons that are about to expire, or you just have a bunch of coupons that you don’t need, being them with you on your next shopping trip and leave them behind for other shoppers.
Have you ever been a coupon fairy?
