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.

As vacation approaches I am making a mental list of all the things I need to take with us. As I was thinking the other day it hit me, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I will not have a camera for vacation. My point and shoot camera was broken by little hands last week and I do not have my big, exciting, expensive camera yet. When I have a moment to sit and think I often think of this fact. I envision myself trying to get good shots with a disposable camera and it turns my stomach. I envision myself taking pictures with my old Nikon SLR film camera and this is o.k. but it makes me wonder, "Will I be able to buy film?" This picture will be me this year taking photos with the oldie but goody. Maybe I should get me a hat like that. I will run my sad sob story by my husband who will probably tell me to get over it and a disposable will be fine. No sympathy at my house.
