There are so many ways in which you can use your busy to bless: Every little thing you do in your home can be used for your husband’s good, whether you work outside the home or not.

Blessings in a Budget: From Busy to Blessing @JessicaMWhite.com
Chances are you’re most likely the one who does the grocery and other shopping. Bless your husband with this, be a good steward of the money he {and perhaps you} earn working for your family.

I know there are times when there is just not enough money; that no matter how much you try to stretch that last dollar it just isn’t going to make it. Obviously those are things you need to discuss together and make decisions about, whether it’s simply creating a budget and sticking to it, addressing other issues, or honestly just not having enough money. But, if you have a budget and are frugal with your money, you can bless him, especially when things are tight.

Rather than being wasteful with food, buying frivolous things, or things that are just way more expensive than you need them to be; take this time to be wise with your funds. To know that hard work and time away from your family, is not being squandered.

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.”
Romans 13:8

Create a budget.

Here is a great website with LOTS of awesome information and printables to help you get a grasp on your finances. Once you’ve taken the initial time of thinking and planning in regards to finances, you’ll be surprised how much further your money goes.

Be a good steward.

When hunting and gathering for your family, whether at the grocery store, clothing store, or consignment shop and SAL’s Boutique, or even in your own backyard garden, make the best possible decisions for your family and finances. Don’t let the hard work of your husband {and YOU!} be squandered.

Stick.To.It.

The hardest part of any budget. Don’t give in on those little things thinking it’s no big deal: I stumble with this constantly. Trust me, you will feel so much better if you don’t give in to those splurges on a regular basis.
