The Grocery Game

I finally did it. I signed up for the grocery game, and I am going to stick to it for the whole 4 week free trial. I will document my savings and let you guys know how it goes. If you want to try it out, PLEASE use me as a referral! The email is [email protected]

You can check it out at

I will be posting after each grocery trip. My first one will be on Sunday, after I get the paper and can clip some coupons.

This should be fun!

Sorry I've been away.

You may have noticed there haven't been many posts from me lately. I was pretty sick. On Friday, the 23rd, I was in so much pain that Kyle ended up making me go to the Emergency Room around 4AM (now Saturday). They found a 3 cm gall stone, sent me home with pain meds, and told me to call to schedule surgery. Sunday I spiked a fever and my pain got worse so I went back to the ER. They admitted me. I had surgery to remove my gall bladder on Thursday. I've been in the hospital for the last week, they just discharged me yesterday.

I got a call while I was in the hospital from my job. They fired me for being "unable to perform my duties". I had been keeping in contact with them as much as possible considering I was unconscious most of the time, sending emails as soon as I knew anything new, but obviously that wasn't enough for them. That really made me lose it- I almost had to be sedated.

So I'm trying to figure stuff out, how we're going to deal with me losing my job and still pay rent, and all that fun stuff. I'm stressing out and freaking out, but trying not to stress myself out more so that I can heal.

I just wanted to update everyone about what was going on.

Edit: Sorry for any typos, I'm still on a ton of pain medication.
