While there are many blessings to living frugally (less "stuff," more quiet, healthier eating, focused stewardship, etc.) here is a picture of how our errands today played out:
1st stop- Post Office= Martha Stewart Living magazine, Parents magazine (both free subscriptions found online)
2nd stop- CVS= razor for Jon and tylenol (we MADE $0.60)
3rd stop- Staples= two (500 count) reams of printer paper, pretty pens (yay!), 2 rolls scotch tape, photo paper (after rebate we will have MADE $0.06)
What a blessing that with a little time and forethought we came away from our errands with more in our pocket than when we left home. And all for things we need or can use!
