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.

Had to Have a Diet Coke Fix

I was dying for a Diet Coke fix today and couldnt wait until tomorrow to get it at Sams Club. I searched all the ads today to see who had it on sale and no one I mean no one had any deals on it. The cheapest I found was CVS for $2.99 a 12 pack.

I have come to the conclusion that I do not need $30 a week to do CVS. This week I have $37.97 and $5 of this was left over from last week. This afternoon off I went to CVS for my Diet Coke. I got 3-12 packs of cans I used a $5 ECB and a $3.99 ECB. I paid .03 out of pocket.
