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.

I Want Coupons for Veggies

I went to Kroger today and spent $41. I did get alot of stuff though.

8 pcks of Lenders bagels $1 each
1 Philly Cream Cheese (for the shortcuts that didnt work last time)
4-1/2 gallon of ice cream
sweet potatoes
romaine lettuce
9 bags of frozen Kroger veggies
1 pack each of hamburger and hot dog buns
6 ears of corn on the cob
3 Franks hot sauce (the only thing I had coupons for .50 each)
I had .80 of shortcuts applied as well.

I have been going to the same Kroger for awhile now and one of the cashiers has started talking and saying hi everytime she sees me. Today was no exception. Today, though, she started telling me about her boyfriends crazy ex-wife and how she was going to the library to look up his divorce papers. She also told me his name as if I would know him. I'm thinking, "Hey lady, I'm grocery shopping with kids I really want to leave now. Are we friends? Should you really be telling me all of this information?" She was really helpful though, scanning my potatoes, corn and lettuce.
