Back in the game!

There is ONE BIG thing that has really been a thorn in my side since last spring, my grocery bill.  Last fall, I began playing the grocery game and couponing and was saving money like crazy!  My stockpile helped us get through two months of snow storms with only stopping to pick up milk and bread.  There came a point where sitting at the table with my big fat pregnant belly was uncomfortable.  I didn’t want to cut coupons.  I didn’t want to plan my shopping.  I didn’t even WANT to go shopping.  The only one that suffered was my wallet.  Full price sucks.
Sunday night, I cut out my coupons.  Monday, I reactivated my membership to the Grocery Game.  Tuesday, I came home with $208 worth of groceries at Kroger for only $140.  33% savings.  I’ll take that.
Today, I’m hitting up Food Lion to “steal” some cereal.  (Not a grocerygame.com tip… I don’t subscribe to that store. I just happened to see their weekly flyer)
Even after getting cash back to cover paying my “mommy helper” for the next two Mondays I STILL saved money!!  It’s like I just earned FREE babysitting!

Yes, you can win with coupons without using that site.  I’m lazy, and it’s convenient.  There is a four week free trial.  The fee is less than the cost of a Sunday paper every week.  If you sign up, please use my email address (memrband3 at gmail ) and help me earn a free week.  If it’s confusing, follow me on twitter and I’ll help you out!  It’s really easy once you do it.

    Welcome back to the game! I go through periods of not wanting to cut the coupons and go shopping, but then I remember how much money I save and get myself back out into the stores. Like today! I let my stock pile slowly start going down, must get to the store!
