I’m a bit of a procrastinator so it’s no surprise I had a few last minute gifts to grab at the mall on Christmas Eve. It was kind of a zoo there and I had both of my kids with me. Luckily we had one stop and knew just what we needed so we were in and out pretty quickly. We went to Bath & Body Works and I came armed with my coupons. I did a couple of separate transactions to get be able to use the ones that helped me get the best bang for my buck and before we left home, I printed an extra coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase and figured I’d find another Christmas Eve shopper to share it with. Sure enough, there was a lady with a bag full of goodies roaming around the store. My kids and I walked over and handed her the coupon and said, “Merry Christmas!” She gave us the best smile, thank you, and Merry Christmas in return. What an EASY way to show someone a little kindness. And hey, saving $10 isn’t so shabby either. 😉
If you’re on Twitter or Instagram you should take some time to look through the #26acts hashtags. The kindness people are showing random strangers will bring tears to your eyes. It’s incredible.
