I asked you to share how you’ve benefited from others’ generosity for a chance to win “Saving Savvy,” by Kelly Hancock of Faithful Provisions and many of you wrote wonderful stories of how others have blessed you.
I was particularly moved by reader Linsday‘s response and declared her the winner. She wrote:
Being that it is so close to 9/11, I want to say that I have benefited immensely from our servicemen and women. I am so thankful for those who fight for our country and freedom.
Lindsay, I hope this book helps you cut down the cost of your groceries and teaches you how to get the most out of couponing so you can be a blessing to those around you and abroad. To show troops your appreciation, you can send them expired coupons to help them save money on groceries and also military care packages. Lindsay, please email me your mailing address within 48 hours so I can send you the book.
If I don’t get a response, the book will go to the first runner up Jean, who said she is on a fixed income and needs all the help she can get. Jean wrote that in the past she has been the one to bless others by giving away her children’s outgrown clothes and teaching them how to use coupons.
The second runner up is Terri Layne. I just loved her response. She wrote:
Are you kidding me?!!!! I cannot even count the many ways others have blessed us, from gifting us with money ($500 from one friend, $100 from another) to go to China to adopt our second daughter, to $2000 from our church, to gifts of clothes, and an entire expensive home school curriculum that we couldn’t afford! My eyes water just thinking of how God has blessed us through His precious people! Wow! I needed this reminder, thank you
If you missed my book review, Hancock will give you a crash course in trimming your grocery budget, couponing, and meal planning. Her 246-page book is designed to guide you to live a blessed life that will allow you to give back. The book is full of useful stockpiling tips and includes meal planning charts that will make cooking dinner a breeze.
If you’d like to read “Saving Savvy,” you can purchase a new copy on Amazon for $11.55 (orig. $16.99).
