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.

Scotts toilet paper and Food Lion and CVS

We use Scotts toilet paper at our house. I know you all were dying to know that. We use the Scotts because our house is old and so is the pipes. We want to make sure that they stay unplugged as much as possible.

Food Lion had a great deal that ended this past Tuesday. They had the 6 pack of extra soft Mega rolls on sale B1G1 Free. They were priced at $5.59 each and I had 14 $1 coupons. I ran to Food Lion, sorry Kroger friends, but I ran to Food Lion. I got 12-6packs of toilet paper. Yes I cleaned the store out and I have a rain check for more.

I got 24 rolls of toilet paper. In other words 2-12 packs of Scotts for $7.72 including tax.

After running to Food Lion I walked to CVS to do a toilet paper deal. I did 2 CVS transactions.

1st transaction

1 Gillette Fusion Gamer razor that was $7.99
I had a $4 coupon and the razor was giving back $4 in ECB's.

I paid $4.00 OOP

2nd transaction

1-12 pack of Scotts toilet paper $6.99
I had $1.50 coupon
I used my $4 ECB.

I got the razor and toilet paper for $5.5o OOP
