Friends, over 3 billion coupons are printed each year. Only 1% of those coupons are used. That means most people do not want to be bothered by clipping coupons. I am here to tell you that you are missing out if you are one of those 99% who don't. Coupons are a great way to test a new product at a better price. If you have coupons that you aren't going to use clip them anyway and pay it forward. Many times I will leave coupons that I am not going to use on the shelf next to the item in the store. That way someone can use it if they go to buy that item. I also do this when the coupon will expire and need to be used immediately. I also like pay it forward with savings coupons from Kohl's. If I have a savings pass for 20% or 30% off after I use it I offer it to the person behind me in line. I do the same thing at Borders. Anyone I have ever done this for is so appreciative. Borders has a 40% off coupon for the next 3 days if you belong to the Border's Rewards cards. They have a users manual for Face Book so I may pick it up to learn a thing or two. I intend to copy off an extra coupon or two to give to the people in line with me to use. So use those coupons and when you don't, pay it forward and pass them along. For now happy shopping!
