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.

Bye Bye Walgreens

In case you haven't noticed I have not been shopping at Walgreens. If you can remember way back to one of my posts about Walgreens, you will recall that I was shoppping Walgreens at least once a month and getting the stuff that was giving me all of my money back plus overage with the EasySaver rebates. I was building a nest egg on a Walgreens gift card for those times when we absolutely needed something and did not have the money to buy it.

It has been a few months since I have shopped Walgreens. Everytime I would go in there all of the products were out. I sent an email to corporate. They sent my email to the local store and the manager called and left me a detailed message about how they were trying to be better stocked and they were sorry. He apologized about seven times on the phone. I thought, "What the heck I will try them one more time." I went back to Walgreens the next week only to be disappointed again. I was so disappointed that I did not even send another email or complain. This is actually the first time I have written about it. Everytime I think about it I get bothered.

Now you know why you haven't seen any Walgreens posts.
