2009 Year End Summary!!!!


Yeay…Here are the official numbers!  I am so glad that I have kept track of how much I was spending and saving all year just for the fact to see my SAVINGS!! I have saved $6500 this year with smart shopping and a Fistful of Coupons!

For my family of 6 I am averaging around $250 per month for all my familys food and toiletry needs. Before couponing I was easily spending between $400-$500 plus every month and with couponing I have cut that in half.

In 2010 I will still post my best shopping trips and will try to track my spending amounts as well. Stay tuned!

Oh P.S. My December Totals were Spent: $353.12   Saved: $192.34 {did a lot more shopping at Winco, Yokes, Walmart this month..not a whole lot of great sales at Albertsons. Plus had family in that last few weeks..}3 Comments

  1. I love reading your site and learning from you and other couponing blogs. I just started couponing this past fall and am excited to learn and do even better in 2010. My question is how do you track your savings? Tracking how much I spend is easy for me (we use Quicken) but I’m not sure how to track savings. Do you just track how much you used in coupons, or rebates, or catalinas? I know you are probably so busy but sometime in the future if you could blog about that or email me I would appreciate it so much! Thanks – Leslie

  2. hi Karrie!! When you add up your totals, do you include laundry soap, light bulbs, etc.. or just toiletries? also- how do you keep track of what you saved? your site is awesome! keep up the good work 🙂 ~Melissa
