After Jesus fed the 5,000 with the loaves and fishes, He instructed His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.” So if you’re one of those people who scrupulously saves every last penny, nickel, and dime, you’re actually following Christ’s example. It’s true that as the dollar value shrinks, spare change increases in insignificance, but reading this list of 10 church products that a few coins can buy might just reinflate your motivation to penny-pinch.

1. Del Parson's He Is Risen$1.00


You've seen Del Parson's iconic portrait of the Savior's Resurrection. Among other places, it has a home on the front page of the pamphlet missionaries use to teach the plan of salvation. Now, a 3x5-inch copy can be yours for a mere dollar to either keep for yourself or pass along to someone else.

2. The Living Christ: $0.30

The Living Christ

Joseph Smith taught that all things in our religion are appendages to "the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ." At the celebration of the new millennium, the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve reiterated their testimonies of the Savior in The Living Christ, an 8.5x11-inch copy of which runs for only 30 cents.

3. The Family: A Proclamation to the World: $1.00

This historic document, which has often been raised as a standard for Latter-day Saint families in recent years, was presented by Gordon B. Hinckley to President Bill Clinton at the White House shortly after its publication. A 4x5-inch copy costs one dollar.

4. Peace Of Heaven CD Album: $0.90

Consecrated Oil Vial

In his October 2009 priesthood session talk “Be Ready,” then-Elder Henry B. Eyring reminded brethren how important it is to always be prepared to give a priesthood blessing.
