WELCOME

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.

Downside of not having my binder in order


I went to Kroger the other day and look at what coupons I forgot to use. These were not in my binder but aimlessly wondering around my house being placed in different piles over time.

I totally spaced and forgot that I had these coupons. I will not do this again, I will put these coupons in my bra to make sure I don't forget about them.

I had a coupon for
1 FREE pack of Lenders bagels
1 FREE box of nature Valley granola bars
1-$1 off 2 packs of Lenders bagels

When I found these coupons yesterday it truly made me say UGH! At least they are not expired, that would have truly broke my heart.

KEEP YOUR COUPONS IN YOUR BINDER!

You are so silly! I am glad that you found the coupons...I hardly ever have mine a day after I get them!

Well at least you get Kroger coupons. I haven't gotten any, EVER. I can relate about the binder. I haven't cut and filed coupons since before christmas. I am sooo behind it is overwhelming.
