I am a stay at home mom who is fed up with spending a large portion of income on grocery bills. It is my job, according to God, to be a good help mate for my husband. I am trying to live up to my job description. I am starting a journey into the grocery coupon world and invite you to come with me. I have never used coupons for grocery shopping and as of January 1st 2008 I am diving in. I will be using http://www.thegrocerygame/ , http://www.moneysavingmom.com and the http://www.couponmom.com/ website to guide me on how to save money. I am going to treat this adventure as a part time job and put in the hours necessary to make it work. I am excited and nervous to get started.

Gearing Up

I have been clipping coupons and hitting the websites and downloading everything I can get my hands on. I am starting to get nervous about changing my routine. I am worrying that I am going to end up spending more money instead of less. I am also worrying about balancing children and trips to the grocery store more often. Right now I shop at Sams Club every other week when my husband gets paid. When I start the coupon savings I will need to go to the store weekly and to Kroger instead of Sams Club. Its a bummer that Sams does'nt accept coupons.
