Saving Dollars in a Tight Economy

We are all looking for ways to save some money right now with the economy going the way it is.  I know I am. On average I spend $120/wk to feed a family of 4.  That's too much with gas prices going through the roof. After doing some research this weekend I am learning that many of  spend MORE on groceries in a month than we do on gas! Is that acceptable? No, not in my house.  As I have stated in earlier posts this year has been a year of change for me.  I am adding another change to my life and that is HOW I SHOP! I am tired of paying full price for everything!  How about you?  There are ladies all over this world who have learned the secrets of Qing [couponing]...let's get on board and tell these stores that our money and time are valuable to us!

Did you know that there are better times to shop than others?  It's true! Sunday - Wednesday are the best days to shop because the sales usually overlap each other; add your coupons to these sales and look at the dollars you save!  Look for BOGO sales and use coupons with them! Buy your cleaning supplies in April...they are cheaper.  Search YouTube for great videos teaching the Art of Qing!  Visit sites like: WeUseCoupons, Slick Deals, Lori has 3 kids,
Southern Savers, iheartwags; and many more!!  Do a google search on printable coupons.  You will be amazed at what you find!  Of course, visit Dixie Naturals and see what specials we have!!

Another great deal...check out Dust to Dust Green Burial. None of us want to think about a time that we leave our families, but we need to think about it and start making preparations for it. We can do this by buying "pre-needs". Check with Michael Bishop for pricing and tell him Regina Sanders sent you.  They have great prices, are willing to work with families, and it is a natural habitat! No lawn mowers mowing over you.  From dust you were created and to dust you will return! For pricing and contact information, click the link above!

When you are Qing...be sure to check the store's Q policies. This could save you some headaches. :)

Dust to Dust - A Natural Cemetery

Michael Bishop offers South Carolinians a NATURAL BURIAL! Scripture tells us we came from dust and to dust we will return, that is what this natural cemetery allows to happen. It's not a well manicured lawn, but instead a beautiful scene in nature with wildlife there and nature trails. You may see, deer, turkeys, or any number of wildlife in their natural setting. For more information on returning to nature and dust to dust see the article link below. I know Michael personally, and I can tell you, this is not about earning dollars for him. This is about offering a service to families and keeping nature safe. He is genuine in his efforts.

Beat Dry Sking During Winter

Beat Dry Skin During Winter Is winter causing dry skin for you? We’ve been looking for ways to give our skin a break and found some good tips:

1. Drink lots o’ water – 6 to 8 glasses a day. A lack of water can give us chapped lips (check), dry skin (check) and headaches (check)!

2. Boost your intake of beta-carotene, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and selenium, which all support healthy skin.

3. Exfoliate your skin before you moisturize. Try a scrub like Watkins Natural Peppermint Foot Scrub. (It smells awesome, too.)

4. Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. Be sure to get a lotion with natural oils and extracts to protect and pamper your skin!

    Hard Trying Week...Light at the End of the Tunnel

    Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just felt like you couldn't take one more thing?  That has been this week for me. But you know, as bad as this week has been, all of the stress that has been there, there is always hope.  Even in the midst of everything negative that has happened, there have been so many blessings. I have spent a lot of time this week counting those blessings and just praising God for them. I am PRAISING HIM THROUGH THESE STORMS!  He will see us through these times too.  I am so thankful for the blessings He has sent my family this week.  He always knows when we need encouragement and He sends it.  He never tells us life will be easy, just that He will be there with us to carry us through. I am so thankful that He does carry us through...I wouldn't want to have had to go through this week alone.

    So, if life's storms are beating you down...LOOK UP! God is sitting there waiting on us to lean on Him and allow Him to carry us through!
