With A Side Of Thriftiness

The Life of a HouseWife… with a side of Thriftiness!

Happy Easter!!

He IS Risen!! Christ has conquered the grave!

This will be my only post today. Remember, there will be NO coupons in the newspapers today as it is a Holiday!  I hope that you have a Very Blessed Easter Sunday!

I would like to end this post with one of my favorite songs:

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless Babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save

‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lot it’s grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From a life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
‘Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

I will stand, I will stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground, all other ground
Is sinking sand, is sinking sand
So I stand

Natalie Grant lyrics

They DO exist!

A few weeks bag, I signed up for a Bigelow Tea sample on Facebook.  I received the freebie yesterday and was S-H-O-C-K-E-D!  The package included a sample of Bigelow Tea and  a coupon.  The coupon has NO EXPIRATION!  This is the first time, in decades, that I’ve seen a No Expiration Date on a coupon.  Have you seen any as of recent?  They DO exist 🙂

A while back, I posted about the two categories of $avers… Name Brand sales w/Coupons Shoppers VS Off Brand Lower Prices Consumers.  In that post I also introduced that the OUR FAMILY brand has introduced coupons.  And, that now the off-brand lower prices consumer can maximize their savings by also using coupons!

After posting, I took my own advice.  I sent an e-mail to the OUR FAMILY company expressing my excitement for finally being able to coupon with local (off-brand) products.  Their consumer response specialist sent me a letter of thanks in the mail and also included $1.00 coupon off of any Our Family product.

See, it does pay to contact manufacturers 🙂
