Budget Boot Camp Challenge #12~Donate

I can't believe we are finished.  I actually did it.  I kicked my budgets behind and I survived.  I learned some things I didn't know before.  I reactivated my desire to coupon and save money.  I realized that not only can I save money but I can also live greener and teach my kids great habits as well.  We are eating more healthy and here at home.  
We did eat out today but it was a special occasion.  We met our "daddy" for lunch.  I was thrilled that the restaurant we chose was having a buy a fortune cookie for $2 and get the chance to donate to St. Jude's Hospital (Children's Cancer) and possibly get your meal for free.  That fit perfectly with the challenge for this week to give back or donate.  Knowing that donating on a budget is absolutely doable makes me very happy.  So I gave the server my $2 and picked a fortune cookie and you will never guess what it said!  No I didn't get my meal for free it said....
Did my fortune read my post from yesterday??  Must have.  Anyway I was happy to donate and will continue to do so.  Knowing I am saving money in other ways makes it so much easier for me to donate and give back to my church and my community.
Check out Clair at Mummy Deals she is having an awesome giveaway with this challenge sponsored by Peter Pan Peanut Butter.  They sent me some PB for participating this week.  It is the yummiest I have had in a LONG time and it was low cal!!  I was thrilled about that too!
