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.

Sams Club deal today
Today I went to Sam's Club after being out of town for a week. I needed to pick up some bar towels for an art class I am teaching. I went back to the bin only to find one pack that was open and missing some towels and a bunch of towels laying in the bottom of the bin. Instantly I thought "DEAL FOR ME!" These towels cost $9.84 for 24 towels. I found an employee and asked if there were anymore towels in stock because I really needed them. I also told her if she didn't have anymore in stock I would take what was in the bottom of the bin if she gave me a discount. What is my motto? "If you don't ask you don't even have a chance at getting a discount." She saw a supervisor and got him involved. He looked and counted to make sure the pack was missing some. He said, "Yeah take them and you can have them for $8." This is not a great deal, but a deal is a deal.
