coupon critics

I read something on a local news facebook page that made me think. The story on facebook was about the local news station sharing tips about couponing. Most of the comments were negative. I was curious as to why most people have a negative view of couponing. I know that there are people out there that coupon and then hoard items or buy just to buy because it is free, but there are so many people that are putting couponing to good use and we need to recognize them and support them. This just  motivated me to get out out there and teach people that you can coupon and help others. Teaching or motivating others to help military  families and food pantries are important and I hope that I can be a small part of showing haters that us couponers are trying to do good and it can be easy to help others with something as little aas couponing. Check out my friend Maureen she is using coupons to help others as well.  Save and Share with Coupons

Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran's Day. Today, and every day, we need to remember our men and women in the armed forces, as well as their families, that sacrifice and have sacrificed for us to be free. I am so proud that I can say I have many Veteran's in my family. Some have even paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. So hug a Veteran today and show your appreciation. 

This is a poem written for kids, but I think it says everything.

The Pride of Our Country

Today as before, our brave do fight
For a land they love, a flag so right
The pride of our country, yes they are
The strength of our nation, best by far
Just as our brave from each war gone by
They march for us proudly, flag held high
From all over this land they come to serve
They’re taught by the best, this they deserve
When troops give their all, the world does see
Whether serving on land, in the air, or at sea
The pride from this country, march through war
With home drawn strength, held deep in their core
Our best are so awesome, their loved ones well know
May God guide their journey where they - for us - go
What these brave must have is support from their own
The love from their people, firm thankfulness shown
Our greatest achievement is that we’re still free
Please take time and ponder who caused this to be

Today is the 236th birthday of the Marines. It is important to thank a Marine today, and every day. So many have sacrificed. Thank a Marines family as well. They make just as big a sacrifice for our country.
