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.

Walgreens Rebates

I have committed myself to buying things at Walgreens that are going to give me all of my money back plus overage. If they will pay me to buy it, I will.

This month I have bought three things. Here is a list of things bought:

1 Jane blush brush $4.99 I had $2.00 coupon
1 Aquafresh toothpaste $3.49 I had $1 coupon
1 Colgate 360 toothbrush $3.99 I had .75 coupon
These items would have cost $12.47. With my coupons I paid $8.72. What I should get back with the Walgreens rebate is $12.47 this means I should have a $3.75 profit!
I also bought 2 box of raisin bran from Walgreens today they had it on sale for 2/$5 I had $1 coupons.

Actually if you get your rebate back as a walgreen's gift card you get 10% more so 12.47 would be an extra 1.25. I started mine off with an investment of $10 and then got the gift card and did the same thing the next month and the next month. You can really add a lot with coupons and the extra 10%.
Also I would highly recommend http://www.hotcouponworld.com/forums/index.php
its free unlike some of the other sites and there is a forum for about every grocery and drug store out there. Someone is always posting scenerios for the best way to maximize your savings.
Good luck.
