A Thrifty Week #1

~ Hubby brought home two bottles of my favorite salad dressing free from work.
~ I sold some books on my Ebay.
~ We watched an old Cary Grant movie, The Amazing Adventure, on a video borrowed from the library.  I believe you can view it on YouTube.
~ Wrote a review of This is Our Time in exchange for a free video for our family and one to give away.  Don't forget to enter the giveaway!
~ I cut my husband's hair.
~ Made a homemade dinner when we really wanted to go out for Chinese last night.
~ Ate lunch at church a few days and ate dinner at church Wednesday night.
~ We borrowed videos and books from the library.
~ I cut up an old stained t-shirt for rags.
~ I used up veggies on hand for a terrific salad before going to the store.
~ I listed more items on my Ebay.
~ I spent a few hours working on school records and knitting at Starbucks while my children were at their Thursday afternoon enrichment classes.  How'd I save money?  I got three drinks for one by ordering hot tea.  I enjoy the Tazo Rooibos tea.  It's so good, I can reuse the tea bag.  I just had the nice barista refill my cup with hot water twice.  Three cups for the price of one.  Much better than a five dollar cup of mocha.
~ Today, I am treating myself with home remedies for a cold. Prayer is a big part of that.  I'm believing God for my healing.  More about that here.  I'm listening to Gloria Copeland's healing school right now!


May I suggest?

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
