Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

Frugal Fridays

Five Painless Ways We Saved $100 Last Year:

1. Doing laundry at my father-in-law's house, instead of paying $16 a month to do it at our apartment complex.

2. Buying produce from a local farmer's market chain rather than paying an overpriced amount of the major grocery store.

3. Looking for deals on big ticket items on before making a big purchase.

4. We also found a good way to have cheap date nights. Check out Happy Hour at local restaurant chains. A lot of places have their appetizer menu for half-price and the portions are definitely enough for a full meal. The best part is that is cuts our bill in half.

5. We saved a bunch of money on car insurance by switching to Geico. Just kidding. We don't even have Geico. But we do save money on insurance by not having brand spanking-new cars which equals higher insurance and just put them in the shop when they need to be fixed. Like now. It's less expensive than throwing down $25,000+ for a new car and being debt for new wheels.
