Taking Inventory: In Cash, In Cache, and In Christ!

Hey Everybody,

I am so into couponing at this point. I have saved just enough money over the past few weeks to be motivated to continue. Also, via Kelly's blog, I found an idea that I thought made perfect sense: taking inventory. If you were about to do a financial plan (budget), you would take stock of everything you had and then go from there, right? You would list your cash on hand, your income, your debts, your monthly bills, etc. Once you knew what you had, you would then know what you needed and how to plan. Well, this link suggests going through your food cache: pantry, fridge, and freezer, listing everything you already have in order to know what you need. I think that's a reasonable idea, and I am going to do it. I admit, I do not look forward to this, and I haven't exactly had time to do it yet, but I am going to do it. This week. (Someone please hold me accountable....)

Now, if there is a financial aspect to taking inventory, as well as a food/couponing aspect, it stands to reason that there must be a spiritual aspect as well, right? Perhaps it would be a good idea to take a personal inventory today of everything that you already have in Christ. This from Ephesians 1:

In Christ...we have every spiritual blessing.

In Christ's sight...we are holy and blameless.

In Christ...we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, and the riches of God's grace.

In Christ...we were chosen and sealed with the promised Holy Spirit.

All right, now, really, is there anything else you need?

Praising Him today,

I love how you pulled this together!

As for couponing...a friend of mine does "the grocery game" which is a service that cost about $5 a month, but she saves $70 a month in groceries! I'm not that organized.

But in Christ, I think I'm doing okay. :-)
