Couponing gives me the opportunity to remain a full-time stay at home mom. If I didn’t save so much with coupons, I’m sure that I would have had to get a part-time job outside of my home. Instead, I invest anywhere from two to five hours a week cutting coupons and shopping for the deals. Last year, between coupons and sales, I saved close to $10,000. Now that is a well paid part-time job!
I have a friend who has chickens. They would give some of their eggs to their neighbor next door. One day she felt prompted to give them 2 dozen eggs instead of 1. When she went over there she found out that they had 0 food. This is what they were living on. I thought we were struggling with $100.00 food budget for one week. This $100.00 is for food, hair products, tp, paper towels, laundry soap, diapers, formula, pull ups and the list continues. I stopped compaining about the $100.00. I look for the blessings that come from coupon shopping. I am not extreme. We are a family of 4 and I buy enough for our family. I believe in leaving merchandise so that another person can be blessed. I am grateful to have extra food so that I might share with others when the need is made known to us. Happy 4th of July Everyone!! Thank you Lord for blessing our family with coupons and a tight budget.
Couponing has allowed me to be able to afford the gas for my SUV. I can justify the gas when I am saving $100+ a week in groceries. We are also paying our debt paid down and that feels really good. I’m looking forward to being debt free!
