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.

Proud of my hubby

I am so proud of my hubby. Last night he stopped at Kroger before he came home from work and got some pie shells and some cough drops. He got the .77 Kroger brand cough drops. When he got to the counter to pay for them they rang up a lot higher. He got his receipt and headed straight for customer service. He enforced the scanner law. He showed them that the drops were marked at .77 so they gave him all of his money back and the item free.

The scanner law is this (at least in my state) When you are over charged for an item you get your money back and the first one free. If you have bought more than one of these items you get the difference on all the other ones you were over charged.
