Not Gonna Take It Laying Down

While at WalMart the other day, I decided that the economy can do what it’s going to do – I still have to feed my family and I still plan on feeding my family.

I will cut back in other ways on my budget in order to buy fruits and vegetables for my family. While we all love some ‘junk food’, I refuse to buy just junk food in order to meet my budget.

I shop sales. I use coupons. I have not reached the level of Coupon Mom or Money Saving Mom, nor do I have a year’s supply of food as some religions suggest. Even still, I make due as best as I know how.

I pray that everyone reading this does the same for their family – to the best of their ability.

I know it’s tough. But I don’t think it’s going to last forever. Furthermore, I believe that it’s only during the times of struggle that we truly learn how to live.

This is what I’m doing. Won’t you do the same?

Until next time…

    Oh I am happy to know that I am not the only mom out there that is not great with the coupons. I try… but I am so not very good at it.
    My girlfriends always tell me how much they save going here and there with their packet of coupons and rebates. I just don’t have it in me to drive around to different places and keep track of it all. I suck.
    But I feed my family very healthy… and don’t buy junk food much either.
    All the coupons seem to be for stuff I don’t use or a brand I refuse to use.
    Well, here’s to you… and all of us that are doing the best that we can for our families however we can!!
