Coupon Clippin'

So... I've been learning new ways to save money. I've never been the "coupon" type but as of late, I've turned a new leaf.

I actually saved a $5 coupon that expired and when I went to customer service they took the coupon and gave me a $5 bill. Neat! Then we saved $30 at the end of our shopping spree which was pretty great!

I've heard some people actually get enough coupons to cover the entire cost! Which means $300 worth of coupons=free food. Pretty cool. With that said.... I'd like to share what I've learned about coupons! =) So check out below...

Organization is key!

With a little time and cutting away... you will be thankful for the $ you save!

The best places to find coupons are the following;

1. Sunday Newspaper (Classic!) You'll even find $5-10 off a min. $30 purchase.
2. Watch the 4 minute video after you register for free, it will change the way you shop!!!
3. Free, printable, easy to find coupons!
4. great printable coupons!
5. - fabulous site!

These websites came from a very helpful Publix employee who loves to save $ with coupons! Her advice, dedicate some time and you will definitely save mula!

Hope this helps! Happy Saving! =)

A Lady in Waiting

Psalm 27:14 "Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord."

My friends... I encourage you to WAIT on the Lord. He is faithful. He is good. He is just. He holds our future in His hands. This is what keeps me motivated each and every day.

I have been busy with graduate school, family, friends and married life. I love all of it but I know that I need to rely on God for all my strength through it all. I love how God reminds us of His amazing presence in the little things. I'm thankful for this. So I encourage you and myself.... Let's wait on the Lord, He will not let us down.

P.S.- Currently listening to Jack Johnson on Pandora. ::delightful::

4 days till we get MARRIED!

WOW. Time has FLOWN by. I've completed 3 semesters of Grad school. I've been engaged for 8 months to the man of my dreams and this Friday we're getting married. What an amazing journey this has been for us both. We never stop learning from each other, learning new ways to tackle tasks at hand, and new ways to handle all that life throws our way.

I could not imagine any other person in this world that completes me the way Roly does. I'm ecstatic, to say the least! Here are some inspirational photos that helped us create the theme to our wedding- Old Hollywood Glamour!

I CANNOT WAIT TILL THIS FRIDAY. Just trying to take in every moment here and NOW though. What do you think? Did you or would you have a theme to your wedding? :*)

Words n' such.

I'm so not good at this whole blog thing, but when I find something worthwhile it brings me back. Here's my scoop of worthwhileness.

This devotional was just too beautiful not to share.

Check it. God's timing is impeccable.

"Poorly chosen words can cause confusion and strife. When those words come from the lips of a leader, the tension is magnified. Scripture is clear that we are responsible for our actions and words. When our words cause misunderstandings, it is our duty to humble ourselves and try to make things right. A humble heart and a sincere appeal will go far to make amends.

If you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, then do this, my son, to free yourself, since you have fallen into your neighbor's hands: Go and humble yourself; press your plea with your neighbor! Proverbs 6:2-3

Prayer: Dear Lord, so many times I speak before I think it through. Please forgive me. I know this causes problems and misunderstandings for those around me. I ask for Your help in this area. Give me courage to humble myself, admit my mistakes and make things right with those I have mislead. In Jesus' Name, Amen!"

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! I hope this touched you in some way.
