How hard can you pinch a penny?

With the economy what it is these days we are all scrambling to find ways to save a few pennies anywhere we can. I've been learning so much by reading money saving blogs, and let me tell you there are a wide variety out there. One of my favorites is STL Mommy. She teaches you how to use coupons, shop wisely, where to pick up a bargain and even list on line coupon sites.

Right now she has a $25 Target Gift Card giveaway going. Who couldn't use a Target gift card? So run on over and get yourself signed up here, and maybe you'll be the lucky winner. Of course then you owe me half...giggle

Hugs and have a great Sunday,

Just what I needed today

I found this on one of the budgeting blogs I read, and I had to share it with you. It says it all about how I've been trying to fill my voids with food instead of God. I hope you enjoy it and it speaks to you like it did me.

Mom's finally Home!

Well after over 2 months in a rehab center to receive daily blood work and antibiotic therapy to treat the blood disease, she's finally back home. This has been one rough year so far in our family, especially for mom. Starting in January when she had the valve replacement surgery.
She been in and out of hospitals, care facilities and rehab centers with very little time in between. Best we can figure her longest stay at home was just shy of three weeks. That was just before she developed the bacterial infection in her blood, which too longer to recover from than first thought.
We are so thankful she's home and we're praying she will stay healthy and grow stronger and not have any more trips to the hospital for a very long time.
Thank you so much for all the prayers, happy thoughts and emails. We are all so thankful and appreciative to you all. God has been with us and with your prayers he has helped us through this tough time.
Now if he will just help me out with my budget and getting us back to eating decently.
