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.

I went to Kroger about 10pm on Tuesday night this week. I found a recipe for smoke brisket cooked in the slow cooker and decided to try it. When I started adding ingredients to my slower cooker I realized that I did not have any Worchester sauce. I have been waiting for Worchester sauce to go on sale for ages now and have held on to my coupons. Off to Kroger I went. When I got there I realized I needed some other things like lettuce, corn, cucumber, taco seasoning etc... I got my things and went to check out. I had about $17 in stuff and with coupons it came to be just over $14. This was not a great trip but a necessary one. After I had paid, the kid handed me my receipt and a bunch of coupons. "Are these all mine?" I said, the kid said they were and I was very excited. I received a total of 5 coupons. I got one for a free Duncan Hines cake mix and another for $1.25 off of rotisserie chicken. Ladies and gentlemen Elvis has left the building!
