Reapings (10/14): “Found” Money = FREE Groceries

Posted on: 10/15/2010

So I walked out of the house on yesterday with NO money in my pockets…I couldn’t even find a penny in my purse! In the hurry of our morning routines, I failed to grab, my usual, stash of change off of the dresser in the event a “scenario” is rest upon my rapidly, moving thoughts.

Ok, anyways…here’s what happened.

As I was sitting in my son’s school parking lot I began digging through my wallet and came across three (3) giftcards. One for Wal-Mart in the amount of $5 (used a part of that for lunch…stomach was happy), another had $1.03 and the finally one housed $2.80. In my beginning stages of learning this lovely art of couponing, I would have simply placed those cards back in my purse and cry defeat. But GOD!

My mind started focusing on the coupons I had within my purse and the cases in my trunk. I wanted to grab a few things for the school and our home, as I was completely out of my Lawry’s Seasoning Salt…a HUGE no, no!

Hello and welcome! I am a military spouse & mom of four boys and two girls, ages 1 to 10, oldest diagnosed with autism. We're located in the Charleston, SC area. My family and my faith are very important to me. Since I've started using coupons I have been able to save more money and become a better steward of my household. I hope to seed into the general public, and our military families, how to spend less and get more.

Get ready to take your grocery & household spending to a whole new level! Couponing is not only a means to seed but an avenue to harvest...both opportunities are endless & a joy to delight in.

I welcome feedback and comments! Thank you again!

Kay
