The best days to buy certain items

     I promised to pass on anything I learn that will help us all to save more money, which can help us all to be able to give to the needy, if we are saving then we can bless others that are having a hard time, there's just no better feeling than helping someone you know is struggling and probably praying every night for God to send them food for dinner. Lets be the answer to someone's prayer:)
                            The best days to buy certain items
To read the full article on this topic go to:

1.) Airplane tickets-Wednesday mornings- the fares reach their lowest prices late tuesday or early wednesday.
2.)Books- Thursdays-  That's when the big chains release their coupons and sales.
3.)Cars-Mondays-Dealers live for the weekend which is when they make most of their sales, the sales floors are usually empty thru the week.
4.)Clothing-Saturdays-They are usually getting a jump on Sunday sales, so they start Saturday right before closing.
5.)Dinner Out-Tuesdays-Sundays are the garbage days, big restaurants don't usually get a delivery on the weekends, so they are more than likely cleaning out the fridge . Tuesdays they are starting fresh.
6.)Entertainment-Wednesdays-Movie theaters, amusement parks, and museums are trying to get people in mid-week, 6 Flags offers a $12.00 dollar savings to AAA members on Wednesdays, that's triple the usual discount of $4.00.\
7.)Gas-Thursdays before 10 a.m.-Weekend demands are high, prices usually swing upward on thrusdays as travelers fuel up to head out the following day. By hitting the pumps Thursdays before 10 am you will beat the rush.
8.)Groceries-Sundays or Tuesdays-Store sales run Wednesday- Tuesdays with the latest round of Sunday coupons from Sunday paper you are more likely to save more.
9.) Hotel Rooms-Sundays-There are two different kinds of managers, the ones that won't give you a discount are off on Sundays, so call then and ask to speak to a manager, your more likely to get a discount, he would rather have booked rooms than worrying about giving a discount, during the week a revenue manager works, they are focused on profits so you are not going to get a discount out of them.

     Now I told you all about watching the coupon queen on Joyce Myers, she was great, I learned a lot just from that show. I found an article today that teaches about grocery store cycles, the coupon queen and the super saver teach people about the best months to shop in, their sales run in cycles, so here's what  I found out, read on to find out the best months to shop for certain items, you can get them at rock bottom prices, sometimes as much as 60% off!!!

Late Jan. early Feb. right before the super bowl
look for sales on chips,dips, and soda's.

Memorial Day- and the 4 of July- look for party foods, meats to grill, and condiments. They will be rock bottom prices.

Easter- look for sales on ham.

November and December- look for holiday staples like turkeys, sweet potatoes, cool whip, and cream cheese.

November- is also a good month to find sales on coffee and tea.

March- Frozen foods, its National Frozen Foods Month.

April (around Earth Day) and in September ( National Organic foods month.)buy  your organic foods then.

June- Ice cream, dairy products, milk, and cheese.

     There you have it, I will pass more along as I find it!!! Hope you enjoyed this information, before you know it, I will be the savings queen, lol.
If you did get something out of this please leave me some comments telling me so, I just love knowing that I found something that helped someone:)

Learning a little each and every day:)

     Hello all,
     I just got done listening to Joyce Myers, she had the coupon Queen on, and it was a very interesting story, this lady Sarah Roe had a baby that had lethal allergies to food, over 100 of them, so his food alone was costing them 6-800.00 monthly for a eleven month old.... crazy I know, I don't know what I would do in that situation???
She kept standing on the word of God and believing for an answer, her and her husband even went 3 weeks without eating themselves just to feed their baby, we can all understand that can't we!!! She never lost her faith, and she just kept feeling like Jesus was dropping in her spirit "coupons" over and over "coupons" so she went out and bought a book memorized it, headed out to the store with twenty dollars to her name, and came back with 150.00 dollars worth of groceries!!! That is just amazing to me, and hence she had became the coupon queen. The one thing that really struck me was she said to not go overboard, don't build a whole other room just for groceries, you have to limit yourself or you will get into trouble even saving money. Actually what she said was you had to have balance. I love that she said if you have ten sauces of spaghetti sauce on your shelve instead of buying more, make some spaghetti , wow brains storm!!!! We should all know that but sometimes we still have to be told, because what??? Us women just love to shop darn it,lol.
She also said to give back, if you have ten sauces then go through your pantry and make a grocery bag for a family you know is in need in these economic times.
     So I have bookmarked her site, have plans of ordering her book, and learning all I can, watch what you ask for you just might get it!! Remember when I said I wanted to know how on a struggling income could I help others, well let me tell ya, if I can go out and get 150.00 dollars worth of groceries for 19.00 dollars, then that is going to go a long way in helping me give to others while learning to be a good steward of my money. 
     I firmly believe that God is not going to pour out blessings on us until we learn how to handle those blessing, until we learn how to give those blessings away, like Joyce Myers says, you don't need to be a holding station for money, a hoarder of money for ourselves, we need to bless others, just be a vessel to pass those amazing blessings that God sends onto others:)
     I want to give you a link to her site, its very informative, has some great coupon links, you can really learn a lot from this lady, she's passing on the knowledge that God blessed her with, so as we grow our knowledge we need to do the same and pass it along.
     I will keep you posted on all the things  I learn from her as soon as I can get my hands on her book:)

      You can find the coupon Queen here:
Sarah Roe:

I hope that comes out click-able, but if it doesn't just paste it into your browser, or  I am sure that will work also, give her a try, stop by and register for some awesome giveaways, and read about saving money:)
                 Until next time my dear friends don't forget I am a comment lover, so please if you find any of this useful send me a comment!!!! hugs!!!

I don't want the same old, same old blog!!!!

 To lay it all out there, oh it most certainly wouldn't be boring, but would you accept me????
What If I just spilled it all, the ugly truth that has been my life? I absolutely think it would be a good
read, but wow, I would probably so over judged that I could never ever show my blogging avatar face
I don't want to write about tea, I don't want to write about food, I don't want to constantly write
about my kids, (although I do love writing about them from time to time) but come on lets admit it,
a lot of moms write about their kids, how much kid info can we absorb???
I wish I traveled the world, could write about exciting places and events that occur all around the
world!!! But to tell you the truth, its fun doing that, I mean the traveling part, going to the exciting
parties around the world, but for the mom sitting at home reading it.... come on it reminds her that
she can't afford to do those things!
I don't know what my main specialty will be about when it comes to my blogging, but I do promise
it won't be boring!!! Don't get me wrong and go off on me saying anything about moms writing about their children, or tea, or food, but I am just saying its been done, and by some very awesome writers, they have done a great job with those blogs, and I could not even begin to be able to match them, mine would just come off as boring:(  I totally love those blogs, follow those blogs, read those blogs daily, I am not throwing off on anyone's blog, just my own ability, my ability to find something interesting to write about, and the fact that I could not pull of those blogs with the amazing funny, creative writing that the other moms do!!!
I want to find the one thing that binds all of us together as women,not just moms, not just wives, but
women. Is it that hard for me to find an identity that is all mine, as a woman, not a mommy, wife, or
even daughter. I want to know what interests you as a woman, what would you love to do that's just
solely for you, something self indulgent, something adventurous, something that you would want to
load up a car load of girlfriends leave the kids and hubby and life for that matter behind for a weekend
of nothing but you?????
I want to create a circle of women that think for themselves, that create ways of helping others in need, and
we just do it, creating a powerful band of women that got together one day and decided they were smart enough
to change things. Women that instead of just talking about the change that needs to take place in our country,
doing something about it. Finding ways of providing that home for that homeless woman and her children.
That help a family that has a sick child to raise funds to help them with their bills, if we have to be the fund raisers
ourselves for a family that we don't even know, I think at the end of the day we would find ourselves so happy
with ourselves, for the 1st time in a lot of our lives we could really shine from the inside out:)
That's what kind of blog I want, recording the events of the day, not my family tidbits but the woman
that was living in a homeless shelter, how we helped her find clothing, and prepare for a job interview, and
how we found her a place to live, supplied her with what she needed to get her feet back on the ground.
How would you feel at the end of a day where you could write a blog like that??????
I don't know about you, but I would feel accomplished, I would feel worthy of that vacation with the girls only,
it would be well deserved, because we will set around on that cruise deciding what family needed our help next!!
and mapping out the plan to do just that, one family at a time, one child taken out of poverty's grip each day,
and nights where we lay our heads down on our beds and fall immediately asleep, worries no longer keeping
us up, because we know of a family that is sleeping in beds instead of car, and they have their bellies full.
That's why we are going to be able to sleep so soundly ourselves.
If you would like to be a part of a blog like that, a woman's group like that, comment, let me know, tell me your
idea's, lets do something good before we die, life is short, we need to live everyday as much as we can, in the blink
of an eye its over, and what have we accomplished??
