The Blessing of Unexpected Sales

The more I get into using coupons and watching sales the more I come to realize how much God is taking care of my husband and I though our food bill.  I've known some Christians when times are tight a mysterious small check shows up to get them though the month, and others a old car goes without needing repairs, and for us right now I think some of it is unexpected sales that help keep us within what we can afford.

Let me take this week as an example.  We are going camping this weekend for a couple days and thus this week needed to get things bought that will be easy to cook while camping.  I mostly kept with things that would be lower cost, but I also added bratwurst one day.  Now here is the thing with hot dogs type foods, I dislike normal cheaper hot dogs (unless they are in pigs in a blankets for some reason) and bratwurst is so expensive (and fattening) for what you get that we rarely have them.  I added them though to the camping menu cause it would be a easy thing and my husband really likes them so I thought they would be a treat.  When I went to the store to get them I discovered that they were on sale this week.  They were normally like $4 and they were on sale for $2.50!  Cheese was another thing that is normally a more expensive item that I buy, and it happened to be on sale for the best price I can normally get it at this week.  Still not cheap, but more manageable.

This is not something I planned the trip around obviously or bought early when on sale to keep until now, but God still blessed us by providing for us not just what we needed, but what we wanted.

Thank you God for things like this and so much more!    


  1. What a great entry to read. Looking back, I can see that happened quite a bit to us as well. We serve a mighty God.
