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.

My Coupon System

I just realized that I have never taken a picture and posted my system for keeping coupons. I use a black index card box and I have seperators labeled for different items, such as: baby items, frozen foods, refridgerated foods, soups, canned goods, breakfast etc... In the back of my box I have my CVS Ecb's and a calculator. In the front, ahead of everything is where I stick the coupons I will use for my shopping trip. If I end up not using a coupon from my shopping trip, while I'm in the store I stick it back in the front and then file it when I have a chance. Here is a picture of my system. It's very easy and cheap plus it fits in my purse so I am never without my coupons.
