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.

Shopping Tip

I came up with another shopping tip as I was in the store tonight. My tip is, get to know your Kroger manager. Most of them will be so helpful and friendly.

I have 5 coupons for free Einstein milk. I have had these coupons for a couple of months now and am unable to find the milk. Tonight I went to my Kroger manager and asked him if he could order them for me. I asked him a couple of months ago to order 6 cases of Johnsons Buddies for me. He has seen me so many times that now he says, "Hey how are you?" He has that hey I know you look when he sees me. He took one of my milk coupons back to his office and looked up the company that sells the milk. He came back to me a few minutes later as I was shopping and gave me a whole print out about the company. He even gave me a suggestion of where to find the milk (not a Kroger store). I LOVE MR. T. Thank you Mr. T.
