It’s the backwards edition over at Rocks In My Dryer, and that means instead of me racking my brain to come up with what works for me, I get to ask you the questions. You then leave me a comment and share all your expertise with me. For more pleas of help, visit Rocks In My Dryer.
I can’t decide what I need more, so I’ll ask all of them. The first is about coupon clipping. I’ve been trying to stay on top of the coupons, but they are overwhelming me. Do you clip every coupon and file them away, or keep the coupons in the fliers and carry those around with you? I read somewhere about keeping the coupons in a binder, stored in baseball card sleeves, but after only one month of clipping it is so full. How do you categorize them? I feel like a crazy person standing in the aisle looking for that one coupon I know I have for something that wasn’t advertised on sale, but it is. I don’t think the binder is working for me, but don’t know what would either. Please Help…
The second thing is a spiritual question. God is placing something on my heart, and it is so not me. He’s asking me to step out in faith. What are your thoughts on teaching young girls about purity, and purity pledges? At what age do you think this is appropriate to begin? I read in a magazine a while back about a family that started a purity ball, where the dads and daughters attend together and sign a pledge of purity. The dad makes a commitment to help his daughter with that pledge. My daughter will be 12 in couple of months, and the naive mom in me wishes that is too young. The “in the know” mom tells me I need to open my eyes. The world is changing, and not for the better in this area. Things are going on in middle schools that shock me. So this question may make you think, but please do comment and let me know your thoughts.
Thanks for participating!
