With not working this year and being in charge of our finances, I have begun the practice of shopping with coupons. On Sundays, I look forward to cutting coupons and looking at the deals from CVS and Walgreens. It takes some planning, but I do feel like I am being a better steward. I also, gulp, am shopping at Wal-mart more. (If you only knew how much I hated walking through the aisles there–you have to pray for a lot of patience!) I realized how frivolous I could be with the gifts that God has entrusted to us.
Yesterday, with some planning, I saved $84.00 with purchases at CVS. AND…they were all things we used and needed. Some things I bought several of to stock up. I would like to thank all you women out there that put up blogs about this…namely one of my friends, Carrie Hayes. I encourage all you new moms out there to look into coupons and CVS.
All of our life is to be worship and to glorify God, and caring for your family with the gifts entrusted by Him is a way to worship as well.
Thank you all again for your prayers!

first…I will pray for you and Wal-marK (as my Grangranny calls it in her ultra south Alabama drawl)…I hate it as well and applaud you for getting past it! 🙂 two…I’m going to check out Carrie’s blog…I feel like a heel for shopping at Earthfare, so maybe I can save a little elsewhere! 🙂
thanks for making me laugh this morning, Elisa. I think you were in my dream last night, so it feels like less than 2 months since I have seen you!
