I wish each one of you could meet my sweet boy. He’s the most precious gift God could have ever given me! Days are long and sometimes overwhelming with the amount of time we spend with therapist, doctors and nurses. But at the end of the day all I got to do is look over into his big brown eyes and acknowledge God was, is , and will always be with us.
One year ago I found out I was pregnant. Things changed. I was sick , on and off bed rest for different complications. I could no longer shop the drugstores. In fact my hubby took over 100% of the shopping. All shopping was done at Meijer and Costco. With diapers being bought at Target. We survived. What I noticed during the year, Meijer does put out great sales on personal care products too! I didn’t need the hassle of juggling drugstore money. Coupons and policies are always changing. The drugstores used to be a great thrill and savings for my family. But…. Rite Aid made it so you couldn’t use +UPs for 24 hours after purchase, and Walgreens Register Rewards are a pain in the rear to redeem, I felt it was becoming more of headache shopping.
Ready for this?! It’s been one year since I stepped foot into a drugstore! Gasp! But you know what? My stockpile is filled with razors, toothpaste, soap, diapers and more! Meijer and Target ARE supplying all my stockpile needs for cheap! And I’m happy to say, I DO NOT miss drugstore shopping. NOT ONE BIT!
That’s why you no longer see complete drugstore match-ups on SavingAddiction. I’m no longer qualified to be your drugstore gur There’s plenty of great blogs to bless you with those needs.
I’m not encouraging you to quit drugstore shopping if you enjoy it and your savings is worthwhile. I am encouraging those who think they can’t stock-up unless they have access to 5 computers, receive 10 newspaper inserts, and have to be in the Walgreens parking lot at 8 am on Sunday morning in order to get a deal, this is simply untrue and unnecessary. My family of 8 prints coupons from 1 computer and purchases 1 newspaper insert, if it’s a “good” coupon week, shops at Meijer and we have more than enough!
God is forever changing and molding us. We are in fervent prayer on where He would like SavingAddiction to head. We have dreams of turning this site into an outreach center for our community. We ask for your prayers in our unfolding dreams. But for now, it’s Meijer match-ups for us!15 Comments
