2011 Thanksgiving Gratitude Challenge--Nov.7th

I am thankful that I am able to continue on with our Costco membership this year.  I've been members now for 2 years.  I enjoy our monthly shopping trips.  It's less than 20 min. away from where I live. Even though there is only 2 of us nothing ever gets wasted.  I'm very strategic when I shop there so that I don't buy anything I won't use on a regular basis.  I'm always anxious to see what will be in their coupon booklet each month so I can see what we need to stock up on.  I didn't know I would fall in love with buying things in bulk at warehouse prices. It feels great to not have to constantly go out to the store when I run out of food or supplies.  Just looking at the constant prices going up on our necessities is depressing so I'm glad to not have to go in the regular stores all the time.  I hate that I can't get everything we need there so I do have to go other places to get those things.  Either way I'm thankful I can even buy food and supplies because so many out there are having a tougher time being able to.

What are you thankful for today?  Would you like to join in by linking up with us?  Click on the button to head on over to Garden of Learning to share with others about your blessings.
