One very easy way to pay-it-forward with coupons is to simply tell others about your experience with coupons. When I first started clipping coupons I must admit I was very shy, if not flat out embarrassed, to share my experience with others. I spent way too much time worrying about being ‘judged’ by people and not enough time realizing that I could help people. After swallowing my pride I began telling my family and friends about my experiences with coupons and saving money on my grocery budget. The responses I received from them were all positive and made me want to work even harder at paying-it-forward even more.
Then, for part of my own pay-it-forward project, I began offering free coupon classes for anyone interested in learning more. These classes turned out to be a huge success and I have met some really great people along the way. Lastly, I started my own website to help people learn where to find coupons and tips on saving money (www.EatSleepCoupon). This turned out to be a MAJOR learning experience for me as I had no prior knowledge of website design or moderation. It seems that almost daily I am learning something new about keeping up with and hosting a website.
These are just my examples of how I pay-it-forward with coupons by simply telling others about it. Feel free to use the comment section below to share with us your experiences and/or pay-it-forward activities.
