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.

Yesterday at Kroger
I went Krogering yesterday. My coupons that Kroger sent me in the mail about a month ago were expiring yesterday so I had to go. Ever since the gas hikes, plus the fact that there just is'nt any great deals lately I am having trouble getting over %50 like I used to. This week my savings was %43. Anyway here is my deal. I will just run down the items quickly and give you my total oop.
4-12pack of Diet Coke
2 free bags of Kroger chips because of buying Diet Coke
1 NY Texas toast
1 old fashion ice cream
2 Kroger cream cheese
1 deli chicken for dinner last night
4 Kroger frozen veggies
2lbs of grapes
2 bags pictsweet frozen veggies
1 head leaf lettuce
1 Herdez salsa
4 Sweet Baby Rays bbq sauce on sale $1 I will be going back for more probably.
2 boxes of Special K granola bars I will probably return for more of these as well I have many coupons.
2 bags of sunflower seeds
2 boxes of Post cereal (raisin brand and shredded wheat)
1 bag of spinach
Total coupons $9.35
Total OOP $54.15
Plus .80 came off of the bill just from my shortcuts
