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 Shopping this Week

I went to Kroger and did the diaper deal and that was it. I have not been back, yet. I do want to do one more of the great diaper deal.

I went to CVS yesterday to do another Diet Coke deal. Here is how it went:

5-12 packs of Diet Coke buy 4 @ $2.20 get one free
2 boxes of Smart Start Cereal on sale for 2/$5
1 pack hot dog buns
1 pack of hamburger buns

My coupons were
$3 off 2 boxes of smart start cereal
$3 off $15 purchase

My Total OOP after ecb's and coupons .26

I have something like $40 ECB for Sunblock next week. I am gearing up for the pool and I have been hording my ECB's because I know sunblock is coming. Next week I may be broke, we will see.
