I went to Food Lion on Tuesday to get the free $4.99 bakery product and the .99 lettuce only to be disappointed. The lettuce was dry, wilted and small and everything in the bakery was picked over and just not looking good. I decided to take my coupon and try again later. As I was walking out I noticed that they were offering free coffee and donuts to their customers. I got myself a free cup of coffee. I am usually not a coffee drinker but since my deals did'nt work I had an itch for some coffee. As I was making my cup my kids noticed that they had donuts too. So all in all I got a free coffee and the kids a donut, trip not wasted.
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.
