Repurposing Thrift Store Finds

On February 21st I bought these binders at Eastside Community Aid for  $1.50.2-21-15eastside community aid$1.50

I used them to stabilize the bottoms of Shopping bags I made with the blue fabric I bought at Goodwill on Presidents day3yds blue fabric

I question the USDA’s claim that it takes $36.50/ person to buy a week’s groceries.

My monthly food budget is $70.00.

Regardless of statistics, I’m happy to help those who struggle to put food on the table.   I have so much fun buying groceries to donate to Hopelink’s Food bank.$120 groceries

In his gospel, Mark records Jesus saying “For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good” I believe he intends for me to help the needy whensoever I will.bagged groceries

(As you can see only two of these bags are homemade, but as time allows I’ll be making more)
