Time 2 Give in Action: Doors of Possibility


?

?
Time 2 Give is the heartbeat of Time 2 $ave – our message has always been to be purposeful givers.  I realized, however that God’s desire and vision for our message was greater and reached far beyond a cart of groceries.

Each day we find tons of different deals online to post.  Today as Jamie and I were talking about what to post she mentioned that the $6 Comforter Set and the $2.69 glow in the dark skateboard that we posted  last week was still available online.  As we continued to chat, I kinda zoned  (sorry – didn’t mean to) as I was bombarded with thoughts of all the deals we had posted that I wish I would have looked at differently.  I just couldn’t shake thinking about it.  What if……..we started purchasing great deals like I mentioned above for the sole purpose of giving it away.
?
Normally, when we post amazing deals like a $6 comforter set, a $3 Lightning McQueen costume, or a $2.69 Glow in the dark skateboard I always ask myself do we need this.   Honestly when I saw these deals last week my thoughts were….” we don’t have a twin size bed, the Lightning McQueen Costume is too small for my kids and a skateboard is an accident waiting to happen (just sayin…)”.  I would and did pass right over each of those deals.
I want to change my thinking and look beyond myself and my families needs when I see a deal.  Now, there is balance in everything and I’m not suggesting we purchase every deal we see.  We have to use wisdom regarding our personal finances.

Let’s challenge each other to see deals from a different perspective.  I’ve included my receipt below along with links to both of the posts for reference if you are interested.

Tonight, I ordered the comforter set and skateboard in the pics above for less than $10.00.
****UPDATE THE SKATEBOARD WAS SHOWING THAT IT HAD SOLD OUT*****
?
Skateboard $2.69 (was $29.99) + Twin comforter set $6.00 (was $24.99)
Total with tax and FREE shipping = $9.54

I’m so excited about the doors of possibilities that just flung open.  Keep in mind, our financial situation has not changed.  My husband lost his job last month, he hasn’t found a new job and  we just have one car now.(his car was a company car)  However, even in the midst of this season of our lives I can still order a $2.69 skateboard to give away.  I was so giddy tonight I just had to buy both.

Here’s my receipt.
