Pantry Challenge Day 4

I really, really want to grocery shopping! I actually enjoy doing it and it’s hard not to stop at the store when I know things we eat are on sale. It was made even harder by the Sunday paper deities decided to bless me with five. coupon. inserts!

Five!

Tonight we ate chicken nuggets and french fries for dinner. It’s healthy because the nuggets are breaded in whole wheat. That’s healthy, right?

This challenge couldn’t have come at a better time. We had yet another car expense to pay today that wasn’t planned for and after the mortgage check cleared, we were down to the smallest amount of money I think we’ve ever had in our bank account since we got married.

I keep reminding myself of the verse Ed Dobson spoke about in church on Sunday: “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

I spend too much time thinking about how things will work out tomorrow, what else will cost us more money that we were trying to save. Sometimes it feels like we’ll never reach our long term goals because we keep getting kicked while we’re already down. All I can do is try to thank God we have enough to get us by today and remember that today is enough for me. He’ll take care of my tomorrows.
