A Life Worth Living by Nancy Buxton

Have you missed me telling you about the bargains I have been finding.  Have you missed my LOL’s when I  come home with several bags of products for pennies?

I have to tell you the bargains in couponing have dwindled considerably.  Is it a sign of the times?  Idk–if you don’t know what that means you must not text LOL. (I don’t know)  I don’t text much myself so don’t think you are the only one that still talks on the phone.  I miss my couponing days and I hope they come back soon.  I still find a good deal now and then but not like I use to.

In the mean time, I still believe we must take care of our money.  As I garage sale during the summer months, I am astounded at the things people pay big money for and then turn around and nearly give it away at a garage sale.

When I look around my house and see the stuff I have spent good money on and realize I don’t even like most of it, it makes me stop and think how much money I would have had I not spent  foolishly.

Today I bought my grand daughter a mocha something or other from Starbuck’s, it was pennies short of $5.00 for one drink.  Think of the people who do this nearly every day.

We have some friends who were paying nearly $100 for cable tv, they didn’t even use half the channels they were paying for.  They also were paying by the minute for their long distance.  They didn’t know there are plans that have a flat fee for long distance.

My sisters, we must get smart about our spending.  Think about your expenses, is it necessary to have unlimited texting for the whole family? Do you need a land line?  What about gym fees, downloads, bottled water, eating out and a dozen other expenses. 

The Lord expects us to be good stewards, let’s start now.
