When Enough is Enough

I read this post today from Coupon Teacher and it got me thinking.  Her post is about having "enough".

I am guilty of this.  Lately in my quest to become more frugal, I have been frequenting the savings blogs.  Blogs that are full of special deals, coupons, sales, and more.  I get excited over the possibility of bringing home bags of stuff for next to nothing!  But then I have to tell myself, how much is enough!

Is it enough that my pantry is full?  Yes. I hope in the new year to use my frugal-ness to donate to others in need. It made me feel good this year when a friend needed a little extra, and I was able to give her a bag of stuff and she accepted.

What I am hoping for in the new year, with our goal of not to spend, and paying down our debt, is to find that what we have is enough.  A roof over our heads, food on the table, health, family, friends.

** Note, CouponTeacher is one of my favorite savings blogs! I will be doing a blog post or a link page in the near future of my favorites, but... add her site to your feed reader!!
