With Thanksgiving right around the corner, turkeys usually come to mind for most people, along with families and thoughts of being thankful. While these ideas are things that everyone would like to think about, I’m going to touch on a few things that you might not have thought of, in regard to the coupon world.
Don’t be a turkey….instead……
- Pass out some coupons to people in the stores where you shop. If you have never done this, here’s how it works. When you are doing your shopping, notice when people are on the same aisle as you, and if they are taking something off the shelf that you have a coupon for, offer it to them. It will be an unexpected surprise for almost anyone, and it will make you feel good, too!
- How many coupon inserts do you get each week? For some of you, only one, and for others, anywhere from 2-20. Use some of those coupons that you don’t use for yourself (or even some that you regularly use) and buy some of those items to donate to either a local food bank, or fix a basket up and give it to someone at your church, or someone in need that you know.
- Share your leftover coupons with a friend or neighbor, instead of throwing them away.
- Add up your savings from using coupons and use those savings to treat a family to a Thanksgiving meal or turkey. Another suggestion would be to use to buy a family something they absolutely need.
Regardless of what you choose to do this Thanksgiving season, realize how much you have and that others are in worse situations than what you may be in at this time. Be grateful for what you have and share some of your wealth, no matter how small or large.
