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.

Another good Kroger trip

I went to Kroger today with my list and coupons in hand. I did gooood! My total before coupons was $43.22. How much do you think I spent? Can't guess? I spent $25.81

Kroger is running a Nascar special, if you buy 10 products of certain brands they give you an additional $2 off at register I will mark these with double starts(**)

Some things were on sale but I did not have a coupon for. Here is the low-down:

3 Betty Crocker cake mix .77each

3 Duncan Hines brownie mix $1 each

2 V8 46oz sale 2/$5 had a .50/2 coupon final price= $2.00each

**4-2liter Coke products .75each

3-6pks Yoplait kids yogurt sale was 2/$4 I had .35 coupon final price= $1.30

3 Stayfree pads 16-24ct sale 2/$5 I had $2 offea coupons final price=.50each
