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.

Walgreens and Rebates

I have been staying away from Walgreens deals when I have to send in for the rebates and wait for my money. You can only send your rebate stuff in once a month, which means you have to save everything to send in at once. I am not good about keeping up with alot of papers and rebates, it all seems like a big hassle to me. Well this week there are alot of the rebate deals and most of them have overage. I am going to try my hand at it since I will be getting extra money back. The funny thing is I dont really use any of the stuff that is on the rebate list, but some of the overages go as high as $1.50. If they are willing to send me an extra $1.50 over and above what I will pay then I am going to get it. These things will be donated to friends or charity I'm sure.

I will post my outcome when it happens.
