Saving Money When Bringing Home The Bacon

Posted by infinitygoods on March 18, 2008

I eat pork. What works for me is to stock up on pork and bacon around the time of Jewish holidays. One of my local grocery stores is within walking distance to 3 Jewish temples and their cup flows over with pork, pork sausage and bacon when any of the holidays roll around. Some Jews will eat pork during the year, but NOT during high holidays. So when the rest of the year, the store has just the right amount, during high holidays they simply can’t price it low enough to get rid of it. Just yesterday I went to that store and found 1 pound packages of organic bacon for 75 CENTS. You read right. They had so much of it that even on clearance they would end up with too much. It was NOT expired and two went in my refrigerator and the rest went in my freezer. I also found organic pork sausages for $1.75 a pound. Two packages were mixed in with my ground beef for meat loaf and the rest also went in my freezer.

I’m sure there’s a grocery store in your neighborhood near a Jewish temple and even if you don’t know when Jewish holidays are celebrated, most calendars will list them. Otherwise, keep an eye out for sales on Matzo, Kosher wine, candles, etc. and that will be the time of the high holidays.

What about you? How do you save money?

We Are Chosen To Tell About God’s Excellent Qualities: Chapt. 29 Purpose Driven Life

“You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you.” 1 Peter 2:9

Today we start on chapter 29 beginning our study on our fourth purpose: To Serve God.

First, Rick Warren discusses how we accept our assignment from God. He tells us we were created, saved, called and commanded to serve God. We can serve God directly or indirectly. When we serve others, we are also serving God. Guess who we serve if we are serving neither God, nor others.

God often likes to have the least likely person serve. Moses stuttered, yet he spoke to all the slaves of Egypt and even to Pharaoh. Thomas doubted, yet he was one of the apostles to spread Christianity. Who are you? Are you a Jonah, an Elijah, a Martha, a Paul or a Timothy? It doesn’t matter to God if you appear under qualified or even totally wrong for the job. To God, you are absolutely perfect.
