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.

Those Darn Parties
O.k. o.k. I have been to Kroger a couple of times this week and I plan at least one more trip, I think. The first trip to Kroger I spent $37.00! Outragous,! I know. My hubby had another party at work and decided to take hot dogs with BBQ sauce on them. It was fine except for one thing, the Ball Park all beef hot dogs are not part of the Mega Deal, UGH! So 4 packs of those and it blew my budget. I was able to do one Mega Deal so that made my hot dogs bearable. I also managed to recoup due to the other two trips. Read the next post.
