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.

Going Commando

I have went commando mode with my coupons. Is it even possible to go commando? Am I using the word correctly? I don't know.

It has been about 5 weeks since I clipped coupons. I'll hold on while you catch your breath and fan yourself. Yesterday I decided to go commando mode. I separated all my papers from the inserts and I put like inserts together. I went through each insert and put like coupon pages together that I wanted to keep. Then I clipped only the coupons I knew I would use. All of the rest of the insert and coupons I threw away. I'll say it again, I threw them away. I have gotten so relaxed on my coupons we have been living off of our stock pile. I do run to the store for the basics; bread, milk, eggs etc... but there are never coupons for those.

Today I am feeling so much better, my stack of coupons are gone and I have a small pile that I need to file.

Mission complete, almost :)
