This was actually a huge blessing. We've tightened our budget quite a bit, and started adding a lot more to savings, so there wasn't much left in checking. I happened to have $1 in my wallet! The Lord is so good to provide us with coupons!

Oh, did you like my cat sitting on the pumpkin? That's Marmalade.

Your cat set a very nice backround, so cute! Anyway, I really want to get the Swiffer Kits but I only have the bogo coupon and only $5 in ecb's boohoo

Still trying to figure out how you do this. You amaze me.

And the cat is really cute!

Great job today!! I still need to get there to get my Swiffer! It's amazing to see the Lord provide exactly what we need...before we know we need it!

What a great image through the window of your cat - that's actually what I noticed first about your post - and then I scanned down to see what you had to say about HIM before I went back and read your article.

That's absolutely amazing. I am definitely in a place where I am going to have to learn to incorporate thriftiness into my shopping. Luckily I have a great friend to help teach me AND I have found some wonderful Christian blogs, as well.

God bless!
