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.

Kroger at Night AWESOME!!

I did something different this week. I went grocery shopping at 9:30 p.m. this evening. What a great time to shop, there was no one in the store, I could get help easily and best of all there were no lines.
Before coupons my total was $59.29 and after coupons $44.27 a savings of $15.02.
I had to get some supplies for an Easter party. They cost about $12. If I had not had to get that I would have been right around $30 for the week. I was able to get the supplies on sale though.
I bought 3 bags of Kroger cubed cheese at $2.49 each
3 boxes of Capri-Sun at $2.50 a box. When you buy 3 boxes they give you a coupon for $1.50 off of next purchase. I will be using it next week.
Let me say again I bought everything on sale.
4 bottles of Kraft salad dressing on sale for 3/$5 I had 2- .75/2 coupons
5 bags of steamfresh veggies on sale for $1 a bag I had 2 coupons one was for $1/2 the other was $1/3 I got 5 bags of veggies for $3

I also bought a Diet Coke and Snickers which made my bill a little higher. I did not have any coupons and they were not on sale :(
