Last night, I was shopping with my son, who was buying a gift for his girlfriend. I gave him a spending limit and he was having a really hard time deciding what to get and staying within the budget. We were in Bath and Body Works and I was really getting ready to go.



A really nice lady saw us arguing discussing which combination of smelly stuff he should get when she handed my son a $10 off coupon that she received with her purchase. He was thrilled. He got to get exactly what he wanted.


The next store that we were in, I was using a gift card to buy a much-needed pair of jeans for him. Upon checking out, we received a coupon as well. I also had about $8 left on the card. I knew I wouldn't be back for a long time so I told my son to give the gift card and coupon away to help someone out.

A lady was in line with her three kids and my son gave her the gift card and coupon. She was delighted. It felt great, even though it was a small gesture.

It got me to thinking- I have received so many coupon type offers in my inbox for various stores that I will never use. I think I may print some of them off and go to the stores and hand them out if I am out and about this weekend.

It always feels good to give! Merry Christmas everyone!
