Savings for Yourself, Blessings for Others!
~ From Charlene & Lyndon
Even though it is just my husband and I and we don’t need as much as large families do, we started using coupons about three weeks ago to begin to save money to purchase bedroom furniture for one of our empty rooms so that we could host foster children. We were thrilled with the savings we were able to see immediately! But, every week, the extra money we saved up has been needed for some other “emergency” such as my car needing some major repairs, etc. I was discouraged this past week as we prepared for our shopping trip, wondering if God really wanted us to host children. Before we began our trip, we prayed, thanking God for providing for these other unexpected things we had come up, and asking Him to please provide for us this week something for the children.
We had a small amount of things on our list at Walgreens, so we started there. The bill rang up to $40.25 and the coupons took it all down to 25 cents–which has been our lowest bill yet and was positively thrilling! I handed over a quarter and we giggled all the way out the car with our milk and tissues and aspirin, etc. Then, I looked down next to the car and on the ground was a quarter! Not only did we get everything we needed–but it didn’t even cost us a quarter! We both knew right then that we were going to get our furniture this week–God knows what we need and He provides down to the last little cent. We were giddy the rest of the day as we racked up enough savings to purchase bunk beds (online from Walmart are some very cost effective ones)!
Thank you True Couponing for your help in teaching us and providing tools for us to be able to be good stewards of the money God gives us and thus allowing Him to bless us!
