This may sound like a really weird to be thankful for, but it has saved me a lot of money, and allowed me to enjoy crafting and cooking things for my family that I would never have tried otherwise. While my grocery bill has increased, our eating out has decreased and our time together in the kitchen and around the table has increased. The Cubs are learning how to plan and prepare meals. I am getting patterns for things that I love to do like knit and crochet. I have come up with fun crafts for us to do.
So while it may be something that is not a traditional thankful topic, it has really enriched our family.
