Thank you for your support.

Using Coupons to stock up on food

Let’s face it, we all know that we should prepare for an emergency but the budget is so tight it not only squeaks but squeals also.  So how do we come up with the extra money needed to stock up on supplies, especially with the rising cost of food?

The answer is simple and only requires one word:  coupons.

Coupons are the best way to save money on your groceries.  And the use of coupons will also help you stock up on extras to stash away for your emergency supply.

In addition to the coupons in the paper, you can also print coupons online.  There are hundreds of different sights that allow you to sign up for free.  Then you check off the coupons you want and print them out.

Also, you can go to various drug stores and sign up for their shoppers discount programs. For example, I go to our local CVS drug store.  When I check out, at the bottom of my receipt are coupons to take $2 or $4 off my next purchase.  So if I go in with a manufacturers coupon and buy say toilet paper and also use my CVS coupon, then I potentially could get my purchase for free.

As you can see, there are many advantages to using coupons.  However, there is also a disadvantage.  It is very time consuming.  It does take a considerable amount of time to do the research for the coupons and the various stores and figuring out what to buy where to get the best deal.

Check it out.  I think you will find it beneficial not only to save on your current grocery bill but the allow you to buy extras for your emergency food supply!

Happy New Year!

As we say goodbye to 2010 and say hello to 2011, I can’t help but wonder what this year will bring.  Will this be the year that the economy will finally turn around?  Doubt it.  Will this be the year that China becomes the largest world economy?  Or will this be the year that food prices go through the roof and we learn to start growing our own food, making meals from scratch and prepackaged foods become extinct?  How many natural disasters will there be?  What will be the single most event that we will remember for years to come?

God is the only one that knows what this new year will bring, but I pray to God that he walks by our side and gives us the strength and guidance to get through it.
