Worth Reading Round-Up!
Alyssa, over at Kingdom First Mom, wrote a great post on What Frugal Looks Like. I think it speaks volumes on how today's culture stereotypes and views frugal people. I'll admit that I tend to do it myself! When I see a lady dressed in really nice clothing and fancy jewelry, I immediately jump to, "Rich, spoiled, not frugal-minded." But who am I to judge? She may have gotten everything she's wearing for next-to-nothing! Alyssa ends her post with one of my favorite Bible verses about God looking at the heart, rather than external appearance. None of us are perfect in this world. We are deteriorating every day, but we can continue to make our hearts beautiful! We should seek to banish pre-conceived notions and judgments about people. I am friends with many frugal-minded people, and let me tell you...they are all completely different - home school moms, hip college students, military wives, working moms, city girls, small town simple-living women, etc.
Does couponing stress you out sometimes? Honestly, even after doing this for a while, my heart still races at times and I get all worked up over couponing.
