I found out something that inspired me shop more this weekend. Now I know what you are probably thinking, Patti, you need more reasons to shop? Crazy, but true. When is the last time you were putting the Freebies in your basket that you thought, hmm, maybe I should get one extra to give away?
We all are given a gift of Time, Talent or Treasure. We as Couponers are blessed with all three and can do amazing things in life. There are those that sit and wonder, what can I do, I am just one person all I have are coupons, I have nothing to offer. Maybe this is our Time, Talent and Treasure ladies. The one gift that we have been given that we can use to give back. Just think about it for a moment. We are able to dazzle and amaze our friends and family by walking into a store, and walk right back out with FREE items in tow. Not everyone can do that. (well, they just don’t know how)
So, here is my thought. The next time you go into the store (using your Time), maybe you could pick up on extra Freebie (using your Talent), with a specific place or person in mind that you can give it to (one of your Treasures).
Here are a few ideas of places to give:
Local day care facility
Place of Worship
Girls or Boys home
Women or Men’s shelter
Home day care
The list goes on, I’m sure you can think of many places to add to the list. Who do you know that owns a small business?
