Because of His crown, we can have ours.

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12


Guessing game!

Update: Shannon, you were so close! It was $150 worth of groceries and I paid $40!!!

As y'all know, I love to save some money if I can, but I don't want it to consume my life. We get the Sunday paper and I clip those coupons, but that's about it. Every now and then I'll check for some bargain tips, but I really don't go over board like some of those "crazy coupon ladies". I pretty much just save the big coupons for whenever Harris Teeter has their "Super Doubles" (like today) and try to see how much stuff I can get for close to nothing! I enjoy being able to get items that we usually buy anyway for almost free (and Sean does too)!

Can you guess how much these groceries are originally and how much I paid for them after coupons? Some of the items include, 2 packs of Pampers, 6 boxes Hamburger Helper, Pampers wipes, Loreal Pro-V Conditioner, Hebrew National hotdogs, Oreos, Wanchai Ferry frozen dinner, Macaroni Grill frozen dinner, 8 cans of Progresso soup...

Happy guessing! Oh, and don't go and guess something ridiculous like $1 because that is totally grounds for disqualification ;)
