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.

The Rug-What a Deal!

We needed a rug in our room to stop the bed from sliding around. After picking up the bed from JC Penney we headed to Lowes. I thought I had a coupon for %10 off my next purchase only to realize that it had expired a couple days before. We were looking back by the rugs and I was looking for something inexpensive but decent. We found this rug which is an 8ft x 10ft berber area rug. The price tag was $88.00. My head starting hurting just thinking about the price. They had three to choose from and I noticed this one had a small snag on it. Of course I got a sales associate over and can you guess what I did next? Yes, yes I asked for a discount. What is my motto? If you don't ask you don't have a chance of getting any discount. I showed the man the snag and he looked at me and thought a second and gave it to me for, are you ready for this? $60.00, yes he took $28.00 off the price. Then he said, "When you get it home just cut it here." showing me where to cut, "it will be fine after that." When we got to the front to pay, the man at the cash register also told me to cut it and showed me where to cut.

If you have done the math Lowes gave us a %33 discount. The snag is undetectable now and it is up under the headboard.
