When I had my yard sale a couple of weeks ago, I was met by a very sweet repeat customer. She asked me if I wanted the coupons that she had been saving and I of course replied with a very excited “YES!”. She said that she had a nice pile of them and that she would leave them on my friend’s porch in a few days ( I had the sale @ my friend’s house). Well a few days later and my friend shows up at my house with a bag of unclipped coupon inserts….there were 37 complete inserts without a single coupon missing!!! Some of the inserts were from a while ago and had a lot of expireds. Instead of adding them to my large stack of inserts I decided to just clip them before I changed my mind. I spent a little over 2 hours and the bottom picture was the result of the valid coupons.
This nice woman left me a quick note that said:
To: The Coupon Lady ( I had to laugh at that 🙂 )
Call me when you have your next yard sale xxx-xxxx
I called her right away to thank her. I really didn’t think she was going to have THAT many coupons for me. I also let her know that when I have my next sale in the spring, that I was giving her a credit on items at my sale for the inserts. I told her that I will give her $0.15 in credit per insert. She is able to get them from friends as well and lives just a few doors down from my friend’s house so it is easy for her to just drop them off on her porch. I am pretty happy 🙂
