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.

New Spreadsheet

I found a program online that will allow me to open Excel and Powerpoint. Now I am able to use some of the spreadsheets that I have found online, thanks to Sherri. She is the true researcher. Anyway I found one that I like alot and here are some totals.

I have been grocery gaming since Jan. 1, 2008

My highest savings week was %74 and my lowest saving week was %44 (this week).

My Cumulative Value $1,149 (worth of groceries)

My Cumulative Spending $525.00 (what I've spent so far)

My Cumulative Savings $624.00 for a total savings of %54

My next step is to use the spreadsheet for my inventory. This will allow me to see all that I have at a glance. It will also show me what items need replenishing.
