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.

Changed it up a bit

I went to CVS last night with Sherri and Christi to do my shopping. We had a good time and hit 2 CVS stores instead of just one. My deals had to change a little because the CVS employees at two different stores did not know how to do the 4 x 6 photo books. They were also out of the towelettes so I was not able to use my CVS $2 skin care coupon. HMMM, I am thinking of calling CVS Corp and telling them about the 4 x 6 books and see if they will let me do another 6 x 8 photo book and get ECB's for it. Here is how my deals went.
First let me say I had a $7.99 ECB, a $5 ECB and $3 ECB going into my deals this week. I know its weak but hey.

1st deal:
1 photo book
1 Bayer
1 Gain
2 CVS pantyliners
$3 kodak photo book
$2.50 Bayer

Total OOP .03 I paid cash

2nd Deal
1 photo book
2 CVS tampax
3 Sally Hanes nail polishes

$3 photo book
$3/2 Sally Hanes polish (I had to get 3 because the polishes were on sale for .99 so the coupon was beeping because the total for two was $1.98 so I got 3 which brought my total for three to $2.97 and the cashier adjusted my coupon down. So I got three for free instead of two.

Total OOP $3.94

Total OOP for both transactions was $3.97 and I have $27.98 in ECB's for next week.

P.s. The photo books are great! I would do a few more if they would give me more ECB's
