Coupons For A Cause

I have to admit something here, publicly.  I have recently become the biggest coupon fanatic.  I know, I know... yes, I am one of THOSE.  

I may need a 12 step even.  Hello my name is Kristin Vanzant and I love coupons.  :)  Lol.

Seriously though, money in our family is tight right now and I’ve found a way to save us loads of cash.  

Here’s an example from this week’s grocery adventure.  

*See Dad, it’s for real.  :)

Harris Teeter:

Total Bill:  $112.12

Total Out of Pocket:  $20.06

MORE IMPORTANTLY... I’ve been able to cash in on pharmacy items for FREE.


All these FREE things... we will be taking them to Guatemala in 4 weeks to GIVE AWAY.

Free toothpaste and soap may not be that big of a deal to you.  However, to some men, women and kids like these... it is a luxury.

Yes, it does take some time, planning and work... but, if I get to GIVE IT AWAY and bless others then it’s totally worth it.

Speaking of blessing others... 

I went to the dentist last week for a regular checkup.  The dental hygienist was cleaning my teeth and asked me what my summer plans were.  I began to tell her about our trip back to Guatemala for the summer...about the country, the kids, the tragedy and the beauty of it all.  Once I was finished with my appointment,  she walked me to the waiting room and handed me a box FULL of toothpaste and 4 BOXES of toothbrushes!!!

THANK YOU Dr. Kemp!!!  Wow.

It’s so fun to watch God provide.  Not only for me and my family but for others as well.



P.S.  Shoot me an email or comment if you want me to explain how I save so much every month... it’s easy and you could have more to bless others with as well.
