Coupon Fairies

payitforwardHave you ever gone to the grocery store and found a coupon left right next to a product you are looking to buy?  If so, you were just paid forward a coupon from a Coupon Fairy.  Coupon Fairies are people (or in some cases store employees) who leave coupons that they are not going to use themselves next to the corresponding product for others to take and use.  This is one of the easiest ways to pay-it-forward with coupons and in the process get rid of coupons that are going to expire or are for items that you are not going to purchase.  This way others will benefit from your gesture and you are not throwing away money that someone else could use.

I have benefited from the generosity of Coupon Fairies numerous times over the past few years and I love to leave coupons for others especially for baby items (diapers, formulas, food) as I know these coupons can make a difference for a family with young children at home.

So, a big shout out to all those Coupons Fairies who continue this practice and more than likely never get thanked for the gesture.

Feel free to tell us your experience as a Coupon Fairy or take this opportunity to thank a Coupon Fairy using the comments section below.

    I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with all these unwanted coupons but have found zero info besides this. This is a great website and should be on the first page of Google search instead of the second. I really hate throwing away coupons because I know there’s someone out there who really needs them. You have me a fantastic idea though. I stay home 24/7 with my two babies and am always looking for something to do. I think we’ll make a weekly thing out of taking a trip to the store and taping my unwanted coupons to the product. I know they’ll enjoy that and it’ll be helping others. I’m so glad I found this site!
