I went to work a few hours over the weekend. When people hear about a new cancer diagnosis, why do people take that as their cue to share their bad news cancer stories? Do I really need to hear about your relative who was doing great then suddenly died? People can be so well-meaning and rude at the same time.
A health crisis/change sometimes puts us in a position of "need" which can be uncomfortable or downright maddening for some of us. How many times have you heard from friends, family, co-workers to call if you need anything? How many times have you taken them up on it? See these offers of help as not only a convenience for you, but also a way for the offerer to feel involved. Don't know what you need? Here are some suggestions: -Freezer meals -Restaurant gift cards -Have someone vaccum or wash your car -Someone to visit with your loved one while you run errands -Someone to send out tweets or emails updates for you -Someone to stand-in for you at the kids' games -Someone to act as your personal assistant: getting necessary paperwork from work, call backs, setting appointments -Someone to pick up groceries -Can't get to your place of worship? Consider having a small group service in your home or consider internet church -Someone to walk you dog or take to the groomer -Someone to send thank you notes
I love the Dollar Store! I can find about anything! What I watch for is the size. If its a $1, how many are in the package? For $2, I might be able to get 3x at Target. Whenever we have a party or BBQ, I run to the Dollar Store to pick up chip bowls, tongs, and plastic cups. For Christmas last year, I bought 20 white with gold rim plates for a dinner party. Nobody knows that I bought them for a dollar!
I love the Dollar store. I am very selective when I shop there, like you said, "saving money sometimes is not spending money". We just rented a new house and we saved a bunch on items like, storage items, waste cans, etc. and I really like the cleaning and paper products.
I thank God for being in control of my life and know I can trust Him. Praise God!
Bring a list to the dollar store The trick to saving money sometimes is not spending money. Just because it costs a dollar doesnít mean that it is a bargain especially if you don't need it. Stick to the list!
Overspending without thinking is easy at dollar stores, so before you toss an item into your cart, ask yourself whether itís on your listĖ and, if itís perishable, whether you will consume it before it spoils.
