Snail Mail Surprises
--by brighteyes, posted Jul 29, 2007
I keep scissors handy on my sofa side table to clip interesting articles and coupons that my friends & family may like.
Once a week, I sort them into different piles and send it thru the mail to distribute.
I received many thank you's for the interesting articles, so I started to clip out funny cartoons, inspirational stories, share poems and pick up stick-um's and other surprise goodies too! I stuff them into the letters especially if I know the person needs a pick-me-up ... it's fun and not expensive at all ... and everyone loves the "snail mail surprises."
Lastly, when I sort thru the mail, I pull out the Two for One coupon restaurant deals, additional savings coupon or certificates from department stores, etc. I keep them in a envelope and if I don't need it, I make sure to pass out to other friends and co-workers for their use before expiration dates.I recently snail-mail surprised friends with: 2 tickets to a baseball game, 2 tickets to a dinner and musical, $10 off at a department store, and buy one dinner and get the second one free at a favorite local restaurant that friends were gifted and used.
It's great fun to think of benefitting others!
