Target and Paying it Forward

Yesterday, I went to Target to pick up some Ben & Jerry's icecream for the $5 gift card deal. While I was there I picked up a few other great deals. Dawn Pure Essentials dish soap for 59 cents after $1.5o coupon and strawberries for 99 cents after $1 off target coupon. While cruising the isles I gave a lady with 3 young kids 2- $1 off coupons for Hostess donuts and one of my $1 off target coupons for strawberries. As I was going toward the checkouts a lady passing out samples of Ben & Jerry's icecream asked me if I had coupons for the Ben & Jerry's icecream in my cart. I told her I only had 2 for the 5 in my cart. She said she would give me 5 target coupons for 75 cents off each one and some extras for later.

Now that, my friends, is what I call coupon karma.

When I got to the checkouts, a young man in front of me was standing in line with just a small bottle of dish soap. I asked him if he would rather have one of the big bottles from my cart along with the $1.50 coupon that went with it. You should have seen his When the cashier checked him out and told him that he only owed 64 cents, they were both surprised. He turned around and smiled at me and said, "Thank You!"

Just one more example of paying it forward.

I hope Y'all have a splendid day and remember, "Pay it Forward."
