The $30.99 question

Me (at Best Buy): Is that your best price?

Girl at Best Buy: Well, let me check some of our competitors pricing on this model.

–pause while she looks–

Girl at Best Buy: Ma’am it looks like I can match Sears price for you.  It’s priced there at $169.00 instead of $199.99.

Brian (my husband): Way to be like Dave Ramsey, Nat!


Moral of the story? Don’t be afraid to ask for a discount.  All they can say is no.


A new season of Financial Peace

New Financial Peace classes started last night and this coming Sunday as well. We had about 33 people at Mid Rivers last night and already people were leaving with hope written on their faces.

That’s my very favorite part of this class – the restored hope.

Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed. Before beginning our budgeting, let’s take a moment and commit our finances to the Lord.
