Coupons for the Community

This blog is for showing the goods gotten for free (or really cheap) using coupons that were provided by friends and family. These goods are then distributed to people in our community to whom I feel God has called me to serve for one reason or another. I am not a writer of any sort, a super couponer, or a very good blogger. I am just a child of God trying to follow what I believe He has called me to do. Whatever God has put on my heart on a certain day is what comes out in a post, so I hope it makes some sense and is not offensive or scrambled. If it is, it is only because I am a work in progress. Love to all, In His Name.

Do Not Store Up for Yourselves Treasures on Earth (Matt 6:19)




God put the passion for this ministry into my heart when Esther and I went shopping together and came back with all of this...and MADE MONEY. Yup, Target and Safeway paid us to shop at their stores. We couldn't believe it. It blew our minds. We started sharing coupons with one another. She would give me all of the coupons for processed foods and I would give her my Greek Yogurt and other healthy food coupons. Then we would go and get so much free stuff, even if we didn't use it in our house. We were ADDICTED. We were getting all of our coupons from family and friends who didn't use their coupons (GASP!), but I started thinking about how much more free stuff we could get if people at, say, church, donated their unused coupons. Then all of the free stuff we got could go back into the community. Esther and I had a blast thinking about how cool this could be. (If we never see another Scrubbing Bubbles deal, it will be too soon!)
