Today's Positive thought

I mean that you
have been saved by grace through believing. You did not save yourselves; it was
a gift from God. It was not the result of your own efforts, so you cannot brag
about it.

~Ephesians 2:8-9

I know this isn't exactly a Christmas thought, but I thought the gift from God being Jesus was our Ultimate Christmas gift! I just have to remember that. With everything going on, I do have that!
Wishing everyone a Blessed day and hopefully I will be back later with some info for you ;)

My coupon list

Do you remember when I said one of the things I learned about this couponing and saving money thing was to clip all coupons? The biggest reason is because there were so many times that I could have gotten something really cheap or even free if only I had that coupon! So now I clip the all.
One way to feel good about it is that you can donate your expired coupons to military families. They can use them at the comisseries.
I was waiting to mention it until I got my own base adopted, but since I have yet to receive anything, I found a blog that has their own. Here it is:
They have all the information you need.
Hoping you are having a blessed day :)

Today's positive thought:

Each sight, each sound of Christmas and fragrances sublime make hearts and faces happy this glorious Christmas time.

Today's Positive Words :)

Christmas is love in action

It's the time
of year when we are all most generous ;)

~ I think
this may be one of the reasons why this time of year can be stressfull!
We try so hard to give so much of
ourselves and look for the perfect gift, that we stress over it. Sometimes we
have to remember that we are only human
and are not perfect. We can only give so much and
search so hard.

I know when I
do my christmas baking I stress out alot. Especially if it is not coming out the
way I want it too. It's not "perfect".

Then I am not happy with anything I made, so I make more trying to get the
'perfect' ones to come out. I will only give the "perfect" ones to

This year I vow not to worry about making the
perfect item. I will do the best I can and just enjoy baking with my kids. Thats
the way its supposed to be :)

So whatever
it is you stress out about during the holiday, I hope you take a step back and
give yourself a break. We do what we do out of love, to show our love, and love
is not "perfect"!

If you have anything tips on how to destress your
season or just want to share what you stress about go ahead and make comments!
We are here to share :)

God Bless you.

Walmart trip 12/08

Many of the websites I look at and use were saying that you could get a free traveling Hungry Hippos game with a printable coupon found at when you shop at Target. Well with that coupon you can get that game for $0.24 at my local Walmart. Since Target is at least 1 hour away from me, I will settle for the 24 cent game!!!!
You can also use one of the coupons for a free traveling Pictureka game!
I got two games for $0.24! My local Walmart seems to be way over priced compared to some. There are many times when someone talks about a deal they got at their Walmart and I look at mine, I don't usually get anything near their deal. I am glad I did today!
Good Morning! Happy Wednesday :)
- I realized yesterday as I was going through my coupons that I made a mistake with some of the ones I posted in coupon resources. While the outside of the coupon inserts looked the same between the two papers, the insides were very different. The World Herald, naturally had many more. Next time I will do both papers seperately!
While I thought I knew completely what I was doing with couponing and saving money, I found there were tons more ways to save! Some things that I have not event hought of doing!
One of the first things I learned was to clip all the coupons I had and to clip  all the online ones! You never know when you may need it!!!
When looking in ads, don't only look for things that you need but remain open minded to anything that might have a coupon. You just may be ablet o get something free and turn it into a gift for someone or donate to charity! If its free what can it hurt?!
I am going to run to Walmart and Walgreens today and let you know the deals I find.
Also, as I am going through my emails, I will post anything that shows a good deal or something usefull!
If you have any comments or questions feel free to post and don't forget to share this with someone! Anyone!!!!

Late Happy Thanksgiving ;)

Well, I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. I know I did. It was a very busy last couple of days. If you went Black Friday shopping, I hope you found what you wanted too! I have decided that due to Christmas I am going to use postive sayings, qoutes, bible verses, ect. geared to the Christmas Spirit~it's hard to be negative when thinking about the beauty of Christmas. (As long as you can forget some of the costs associated with it!)
One of the best parts of my day after Thanksgiving I really gave thanks to my son (one of the 3). He has been very emotional and defiant lately and Friday he was the most wonderful little boy in the world. I like it when I get glimpses of the real little boy on the inside instead of this emotional defiant little boy, though at 11 he is not so little.
Until next time, I wish you all a very blessed night.

Thanks for visiting me at Thinking Positive ~ with God's help!!!
I haven't exactly figured out what I am going to add to this blog yet. I do know that I will have a positive thought posted every morning. I hope this will help those that are struggling with the daily challenges of life.
I am interested in many things and will probably integrate it all in here somehow. It could be anything from saving tips, ideas for dealing with a challenging child, to scrapbooking ideas...
I hope to have regular schedule of ideas within the next couple of weeks.
If you have anything to add or a suggestion of something to discuss, don't be shy!
Thank you and have a very Blessed day :)
