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.

Budget What Budget?

This picture totally describes my feelings about my spending this week.
I went to Sams Club today for my bi-weekly shopping. I feel like a big loser because I spent $173.00 today. I did buy alot of meat so that is a killer on a budget. I have not spent this much money at Sams Club in a long time.

My total OOP at Sams and Kroger this week is $220.00 I am still $30 under what I used to spend a Sams Club alone.

Great picture! And you're still $30 under your old average so really, what's so bad about that? CVS is spoiling you with all those ECBs!
