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 Second Trip This Week
My second trip to Kroger went much better. I really only see two deals that I can not possibly live without this week. This second trip was for the Huggies 80 tubs of wipes. Let me first say that I bought 20 coupons for $1 on Ebay. This was my first time buying coupons. I don't like to do it but a good deal needed drastic measures. These coupons were for $1 off 64 ct or larger Huggies wipes. Some of you may recall that with the buy 10 participating items you get $5 off at the register. Well, this makes Huggies wipes $2 per tub and with my coupons it makes them $1 a tub. I got 800 wipes for $13.00, this includes my Ebay purchase. I think that is a good deal. Before coupons my total was $22.
