On Labor Day last year my husband went out for a meal at a restaurant. After we had finished, I asked him if he'd ever given a waiter/waitress a 100% tip. He gave me this funny look (probably because he was thinking about how much our dinner added up to be!) and said he hadn't. I said that since it was Labor Day and our waitress was working this holiday, it would be fun to give her a 100% tip and see what her reaction would be. He told me I was crazy but agreed anyway! Our dinner bill came to $32.18 so that's the exact tip we left, $32.18. We tried to hand her our dinner bill folder but she kept telling us to leave it on the table and she would get to it.

I would tape the coupons I wasn't using to the product in hopes that someone could use it and I wouldn't have to throw them in the trash.
I got to the diaper aisle and taped a wipe and diaper coupon to the diaper box. As I moved my way down the diaper aisle, I noticed a mother with her young son putting the exact wipes in her cart. Then I watched her put the exact diapers in her cart as well. I walked over and took the taped coupon off the other box and handed it to her along with another diaper coupon that I hadn't yet taped. She was so surprised and happy since she had left her coupons at home that day.
One of my coupons was $5 off a Swiffer system. I could only image the face of the person that found that one taped to their new purchase !!
So, from now on, I am going to be the coupon fairy and share what I get with others.
