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.

Yes I am back from a wonderful vacation. We went to Myrtle beach and laid around most of the week. I am sure you missed me, well at least Sherri missed me. We talked on the phone yesterday for 82 minutes. Oh my, what can two women talk on the phone that long about, since we talk to each other everyday? Deals, kids and all kinds of misc. stuff of course.
I did get a deal while I was gone and wanted to share with you. Listen up homeschoolers. I say, LISTEN UP HOMESCHOOLERS! This is for you. At the beach they have an aquarium called Ripleys Aquarium and admission is $21 per adult and $10 per children. I thought there must be a discount to be had somewhere. I took out my HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) teacher card and my local home school group card and headed for customer service. I pleaded my case that we are homeschoolers and would like a discount. Now remember my motto, repeat it with me. "If you dont ask you have no chance of getting a discount." Remember me saying this? Anyway I asked and here is what they did for us. My husband and I got in for FREE and the two kids got in for $10. It would have cost of $62 without our teacher card instead it cost us a total of $10. Now that is a deal!
