What to do with your extra coupons.
(This is actually cross-posted from one I offered up in GD.)

This morning I went to the store for brown sugar and there was a small stack of coupons for that particular brand neatly tucked under the stack of sugar yet sticking out enough so you could easily spot them. Needless to say I used one but I thought that was just the coolest idea . . .distribute your unwanted/unused coupons throughout the store for others to use. Anyway, just thought I'd share.

Added: I was thinking, I'm always passing by coupons for diapers and such because I never had need for them. I never thought about cutting them out anyway and placing them in the applicable section.

1. I frequently leave coupons on the shelf with some of the items
I have decided not to buy. I notice that others do it too. It is a good way of sharing a bit of savings. I will also leave the 'buy 3" coupons. I am alone and three of almost anything is too much for me but would probably be of use to someone with a larger family.

The 'buy 3' offers no savings those of us with little storage This method of enticement does not tempt me.

2. Cool.
This is the first time I've ever seen this, or maybe I just haven't noticed. Anyway, it's going to change my coupon-clipping habits.
