I have been doing the grocery game since Dec/Jan time and now I am starting to feel the burden of debt being lifted. I can also notice a change in my husbands disposition as well. Debt stresses him out more than anything else. He would dread when I would grocery shop now he laughs and asks how much I spent. In the past couple of week my hubby has become the man of hospitality. He is volunteering to bring meatballs and sausage dishes to work functions. The functions are things like retirements and new babies. Today he made hot sausage with onions and mushrooms. He then recruited me to make fudge brownies. I love that we are able to give more and not worry about running out of money or moving money from accounts to cover stuff. I also love having the stuff stockpiled and I can just run to my shelves and pull it out.
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.
