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.

Persistence and Patience Paid Off

Wow! I guess waiting does pay off. I have been wanting a bed frame from J.C. Penneys for about a month or two now. It was marked $149.00 and when I went to the store to get free shipping the lady said it had went up in price to $199.00. What had happened is J.C. Penney had a sale so they marked the bed up to $199 to give free shipping. This was not a good deal for me. After the sale the bed came back down to $149 but then was out of stock. I was bummed, but waited and waited and waited checking the website weekly.

Today I went on the site because I got an email for free shipping. Low and behold there was my bed in stock! I jumped up and down and then clicked to see if it was in stock. Again I jumped up and down and set to work getting free shipping. I was able to get my bed frame today delivered to the store for $156. including tax and free shipping. Yay!!
