Some FREEBIES I picked up

This week has been a great week of FREE or Nearly FREE purchases…woohoo! BUT before I get to that…let me start by saying that this past weekend the Faithful & Frugal ministry pantry along with help from my personal stockpile and from Cissy Durham (a F&F alum) was able to bless a family in need with several hundred dollars worth of groceries. PRAISE GOD!!! It was awesome and I wanted to take a moment and remind everyone why I do what do…why WE do what we do…not just to bless our own families BUT more importantly to be a blessing to others as well. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

Now, this is a really long post…but worth the read 🙂

  1. That is awesome Angel! Maybe I need to take the full class again. Where do you find all your manf and target coupons?

  2. Stephanie…I always buy 4 papers which allow 4 sets of one coupon per item. BUT I also print a lot of manf coups throughout the month…from Coupons.com and Smartsource.com, etc. Target coups can be printed from the Target.com site or from a coupon generator at AFullCup.com 😉
