It’s been a busy day of shopping for me today because most of the stores are having sales this week especially in the baking sections. So I’m stockpiling the basics like sugar, flour and butter. My favorite store this week was Fred Meyer (Kroger affiliate) because of their cheese and butter sale. I also stopped at target to check their clearance for their halloween candies. They normally will have 70% off after halloween, I did score a lot of candies and I will send them to my family and friends back home in the Philippines. I don’t buy “junk food” unless they’re on sale. I believe it’s fine to have these treats in moderation. I’m not a big fan of chocolates/candies unless it’s Kit-kat (they’re my guilty pleasure). I used coupons on my Fred Meyer trip (mostly store coupons) ,didn’t use any on my Target trip.
On a more serious note: I would like to ask for prayers for my home country, the Philippines. They just experienced Super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) . It’s so heartbreaking with what happened in the last 2 days; hundreds died, lots of missing people, millions of homes damaged. We Filipinos are resilient and we’ll get back up again. Prayers for healing and God’s protection for the country. Deuteronomy 31:8.
