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...


  1. You go Moma!!!Sounds like a plan to me....

  2. You go girl! I have not quite reserved myself to using coupons, I suppose we ought too. Blessings dear friend.

  3. 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!!

  4. Stay tuned - I have got a coupon story to share that cannot be missed!

    I'll post about it tomorrow morning.
