I went to Sams yesterday and spent a ridiculous $216.00 Whew, I thought I might black out here just typing it. The only really good thing about going shopping yesterday was that I filled up at Kroger using my gas points. I had .30 off per gallon so I filled my car for $1.06 per gallon. The very best thing though was that I only needed a 1/4 tank of gas. I spent $6.
Another money savings for us is that I only fill my van every other week. When I go to Sam's Club is when I fill up.
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.
