90% off to Free this week!

by helenmmaddox@gmail.com on March 4, 2012

Here is a list of items that are 90% or more!  I love Freebies, easy to stockpile and donate too!  Grab double papers every week and cut coupons as the deals are posted (keep your circulars together, write the Sunday date on the top of each circular).  I used my favorite pricing website – www.couponmom.com to compile my list.   Make a effort to purchase items that are 90% off to Free over the course of a couple of months and see how your stockpile grows spending little to no money!

Storm Victims – Action Plan for Assistance

by helenmmaddox@gmail.com on March 3, 2012

Poole Elementary School

I live in Paulding County, Ga and we went through a round of storms last night that caused damage to schools (Poole Elementary – see pic above), homes, and airport.  As we watched the line of storms move across the Southeast last night on our local WSB-TV, I knew there would be many people whose lives would be changed instantly and possible loss of life.

After Hurricane Katrina hit, I put together a Action Plan for storm victims to use that have gone through a Natural Disaster.  The Disaster Survivors Step by Step Action Plan could be helpful to anyone that has suffered loss due to a natural disaster,  that has been injured, had property damage, lost personal belongings,  experienced loss of employment due to damage to business, and what agencies to contact that offer assistance.  Please share this information with your family and friends or forward to agencies that might be helped with this information.  My prayers are with storm victims and hope this plan will help you as you rebuild.  (Click Link below to access)
