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.

2 packs of napkins that match the plates
1 plastic table cloth
2 Little People figurines one was a little girl the other had a little boy and a bunny. (yes .50)
3 packs of plastic eggs
4 plastic bowls
1 large plastic bucket
1 dozen pre-filled religious plastic eggs
