Dollar General: $2 off $2.01 purchase... I got 3 nail polishes for $1.06

Dollar General now offers digital coupons! Sign up and load a current sweet
offer, $2 off $2.01 or more purchase (available through 10/3). I tried it out and it worked perfectly... just type your phone number onto the keypass at checkout and the loaded coupons come off automatically.

I personally purchased three bright nail polishes for a part of a girly gift bag for Anna's fifth birthday (she loves painting her nails, but mommy's colors aren't always so exciting). Each nail polish was a dollar, but after the coupon and tax, I only paid $1.06 total for all 3! That's about 36 cents a bottle.

You could use this coupon to get a great deal on a grocery item, a cheap addition to an Operation Christmas Child shoe box, a stocking stuffer for your kids, or many other options since the Dollar General carries a variety of items. Let me know if you get the chance to use the coupon before Friday!

Are we giving to God what changes how we live?

"Are we giving to God what we can afford to give — or are we giving to God what changes how we live?

And we’re hungry to live into the questions that answer with our lives: We are only giving what we are called to give when it is changing how we live.

We’re not giving what we’re called to give, unless that giving effects how we live — effects what we put on our plate and where we make your home and hang our hat and what kind of threads we’ve got to have on our back.

Surplus Giving is the leftover you can afford to give; Sacrificial Giving is the love gift that changes how you live — because the love of Christ has changed you.

God doesn’t want your leftovers. God wants your love overtures, your first-overs, because He is your first love."-Ann Voskamp, What the North American Church is Most Hungry For

"I am N" tee from Voice of the Martyrs

I was quite excited to see that Voice of the Martyrs now has an "I am N" tee shirt that you can buy to support the Christians being persecuted in Iraq! The tee costs $20, with $10 going directly to Iraqi relief efforts. This would make a great gift for someone (or for yourself) and would help raise awareness of the Iraqi crisis while providing financial support.

Free short sleeve tee shirt at Sears Outlet Stores (9/30)

Unfortunately, we don't have a local Sears Outlet store, but if you do (see locations here), they're offering an absolutely free short sleeve shirt today only, 9/30!

Thanks, Passionate Penny Pincher!

Enjoying free coffee

I was "in town" today for a baby check-up (already 34 weeks along) and remembered that it was the last day to get a free coffee at McDonald's during breakfast hours! Here's me enjoying my free cup... free coffee is always an exciting addition to my morning! :)
