Couponing is an incredibly simple way to make others’ lives easier. I look at the many ways couponing can help those most in need in this piece for Mature Living:
Making a Monday morning visit to an assisted living center, a retired teacher gathered a stack of coupons from several Sunday papers. “Not only do I collect coupons,” she says, “but this gives me an opportunity to connect with the people who live in this community. It’s a small thing but one that is making a difference in the lives of others.”
Instead of only stocking your own pantry, think of ways to provide food, household products, half-priced restaurant meals, and free products as a ministry to others. Put these tips to work for you. Then invite a group of friends to commit to this stewardship ministry and multiply the savings.
