About a year ago, I published a devotional in a book called “Faith and Finances.” The book focused on what God teaches us about money- the basic being that money itself is not evil. However, Christians must learn to balance between squandering our money and hoarding our money. An added benefit of saving money is that one can give more, a valuable and good thing, provided we verify that our charity is going to beneficial causes.
So, how does one save money? One way is to spend the time to make use of the many resources online. Online resources include printable coupons, shopping for “points” or “cash back” which you can trade in. (Literally, I’ve gotten back over $250 from collected points!)
Another way to save money is to use physical coupons. Yes, I still get the Sunday paper…and I get it just for the coupons. Also, many stores are starting to put a ‘coupon basket’ by the front door in which customers drop off coupons they don’t want and search through looking for coupons they do want.
But one of my favorite ways to save money is to use coupon codes when I shop online. Did you know that when you buy from a store, a good portion of them have coupon codes? Coupon codes for a certain percentage off, free shipping, or other deals (such as 2 for $20 video games). Almost all of the major retailers have coupon codes online: Wal-Mart, Target, Macy’s, etc.
So, where to find these online coupon codes?
Frugal Dad is one of my favorites. First, it is reputable. It has been featured in ‘The New York Times,’ ‘The New Yorker,’ and ‘Kiplinger’ among many others. (I personally verified ‘The NY Times’ feature, making me certain I can trust the others.) Speaking of the site being reputable, it has archives going back to 2007! Trust me, the longer a site has been around, the better it is in general. It shows the site owner is dedicated to what they are doing and are very familiar- probably an expert- with the topic they are writing about.
It has coupon codes for a large variety of stores, including coupon codes from Walmart. Just a few of the other stores he features coupon codes for is Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Macy’s (among many, many others). My advice: if you’re looking for coupon codes, check out Frugal Dad, located at: http://frugaldad.com/
Despite the fact that a lot of people seem to be wearing scrubs these days, scrubs are most often- and rightly in my opinion- associated with the medical industry. And not just any medical personnel, but those working hands-on with patients, in hospitals (and clinics), and those who need to quickly be identified as medical personnel.
Another part of being in the field of medicine is often long hours and back-to-back shifts. Shouldn't you be comfortable? That's where Blue Sky Scrubs come in. They search for the finest options available in the cotton & poly/cotton world of fabrics, making them comfortable as well as practical. You can find Blue Sky Scrubs at the following web address: http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/
However, comfortable materials are only part of it. Shelby Marquardt, the creator of Blue Sky Scrubs, went a step further and made these scrubs fashionable. From hats to lab coats to scrub sets, there are a variety of styles- regular cut to low-rise urban cut, among others- available. Nursing uniform scrubs, scrubs for men, as well as shirts and lab coats are all options on the site. Unique (as well as traditional) colors and various patterns make it easy to find a set that fits your personality.
On a final note, Blue Sky Scrubs is accredited by the Better Business Bureau, making it easy to confidently and comfortably shop, knowing you are ordering from a reputable company.

~~~Prayer before Writing-
Oh creator of the universe, who has set the stars in the heavens and causes the sun to rise and set, shed the light of your wisdom into the darkness of my mind. Fill my thoughts with a loving knowledge of you, that I may bring you like to others. Just as you can make even babies speak your truth, instruct my tongue and guide my pen to convey the wonderful glory of the Gospel. Make my intellect sharp, my memory clear, and my words eloquent, so that I may faithfully interpret the mysteries what you have revealed.
To my readers & fellow writers,
1. I will pray that God's grace helps illuminate all of our interactions- both those of simple reading and more active conversations.
2. I will communicate with you respectfully and civilly. These are (rightly) issues which we feel passionate about. But even in disagreements, I will respect you fellow "seekers of truth."
3. I will not fall into negative behavior or words, such as insinuations, exaggerations, blames, or personal attacks. I respectfully ask you to do the same.
4. I will pray we will all find the truth and strive to fulfill the two greatest commandments: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:30-31)
