Pay it Forward- Small Acts of Kindness in the Shopping Mall

Reblogger Charles Stallions
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Charles Stallions Real Estate Services

Here is a great story to start the New Year with and makes one realize that it doesn't cost to be thoughtful or to be a nice person. Some go out of there way while others it just comes naturally. I would dare say evryone would agree that the world would be a better place if everyone took the time to be a little nicer.

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!

Okay, I admit it - I cut coupons - and the ones I do not have any intention of using I place next to the products in the stores they are located in.  Just takes a couple of extra minutes and may save the next shopper some much needed cash.  We are all in this together.
