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.

CVS shoppping trip

I went to CVS today to try my hand at some coupon savings. I would also like to note that the grocery game has taken this week off due to holiday so I am winging it. Next week will be better, I think. Anyway I went to CVS and here is what I got:

2 packs of the Swiffer dry - 2 packs for $7
1 Colgate Total White toothpaste 6 oz - 2 for $5
4 Dawn Ultra dish soap 11oz each $.99 ea
1 Bounce lint brush $3.99

here is my coupons I had

$3 off of a $15 purchase
$1.50 off Colgate total white toothpast
2- $1 off 2 Dawn soaps any size
$1 off 2 Swiffer dry products

My bill before coupons was $17.45 without tax

My bill after coupons was $9.95 without tax


I also got $3 Extra Bucks (which is just like money) for my next purchase and a coupon for $2.50 off CVS brand purchase of $10 or more.

This week CVS has their brands buy one get one free so I could use that coupon this week while their brands are on sale.

Congrat's Kim!

Justin says that this is his new favorite blog. He's jealous of your savings, and will soon be playing the coupon game, I think.

See you tonight at Ellouise's?
