How Do You Use The Coupon Savings Tracker?

Here are my video tutorials to help you understand how to get your Savings Tracker all set up. Trust me, this will help you figure it all out. :)

*Very Important: make sure that the first time you set up this Coupon Savings Tracker you do it thoroughly as if you try to add stores or change things later it can mess up all your data.

To get this free download and start using it, download this spreadsheet to your computer.  If you have Microsoft Excel – you will want to check which year you have and choose the appropriate year for your download.   Choose to SAVE it to your computer. If you do not have Microsoft Excel I have also created a simple spreadsheet for Open Office that you can use.  You can download the Open Office program for FREE here. The Open Office version of The Coupon Savings Tracker is a simpler spreadsheet but is still a great resource.

When you first open up the spreadsheet I would suggest you click on the “How To Start” tab and read the beginner instructions.  I would also highly suggest watching the video tutorial for your version as this shows you step by step how the spreadsheet works.

  1. Thank you for creating this spreadsheet. I think it is basic enough that I will actually use it more than a month. I will share about it on my blog.

  2. What do I do if I have Excel 2008. When I tried both the 2003-2007 and the 2010 it said something about macros being not supported.
    Any clue?

  3. I really like this spreadsheet. The only suggestion that I have is that you add another set of Saving Type/Savings columns. For instance, I just bought diapers at CVS. They were on sale for $9.49 (reg. $11.99), I used a $3.00 coupon, AND I received ECB’s for $1.00. So, I really had three areas of saving, not just two. Thanks!!

    • Thanks Amanda, I will see if my hubby can add another column the next time we do revisions. I really appreciate the feedback, there are so many ways to save it’s true.

      • I was gonna suggest the same thing that Amanda did, but still wanted to let you know how greatful I am to you for sharing this spreadsheet. Thanks a bunch!!! ;)

  4. Thanks so much for this! Is there a version for 2008? Both versions I tried to download said something about macros. Maybe its a problem between mac and pc? I have a mac. Thanks!

    • Hi Melissa (and this is also for Kristin too) about the 2008 excel – looks like you two do have a mac as Microsoft Excel 2008 was for Mac.

      Here is the information I found online:

      Unfortunately Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) are NOT supported in Office 2008. This was by Microsoft’s design.

      Why was it removed?
      Microsoft says Office 2008 was built to be a universal application designed to run on the new Apple Intel processors. The Macintosh VBA compiler was originally designed to run on PPC-based Macs and will not work without serious modifications on the Intel Macs. The modifications would have pushed back the release date of Office 2008.

      Options
      Keep both Office 2004 and Office 2008. They can be run at the same time. Just make sure Office 2008 SP 1 has been installed first.
      Stick with Office 2004, running it in Macintosh Rosetta on Intel-based Macs. However, files with the new “m” format (.docm, .xlsm, or pptm) won’t run and can’t be converted for Office 2004.
      Learn AppleScript. Entourage 2004 has been working without macros since its existence. According to Microsoft, “virtually everything you can do in VBA, you can also do in AppleScript”.

      Use a Windows machine.
      If you have an Intel Macintosh, you can use BootCamp and open it in Windows XP.
      Open it within a virtualization program like Parallels or VMWare’s Fusion. (Note: At this time, ITCS doesn’t support any of these virtual programs.)

      Sorry – looks like it will not work for you unless you try some of the options listed above.

  5. Thank you so much, this is amazing. I love it. Last year I used this and saved $6,476 from coupon shopping. It was so fun to see thanks to this spreadsheet and your wonderful website. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!

    • That is AMAZING Makenna! I am in awe at your savings!!! Congratulations for saving your family so much money. I hope you don’t mind but I am sharing this on facebook. :)

  6. Thank your husband for another wonderful spreadsheet this year. I love it and loved to see my savings.

  7. I downloaded your coupon tracker to help with my New Year’s resolution of spending less in general. I downloaded the Excel 2010 version in order to take advantage of the additional store and savings types options, but I’m using Excel 2007 to open it. Everything seems to work fine (I do have macros enabled) except that I don’t get a drop down list in the Store or Savings columns like you do in the video. It’s like it’s just a plain cell. Any thoughts?

  8. I have having trouble doing the update, anyone else? I have 2007 Excel, and downloaded for this version, I entered some data, but no spending is feeding into the stores savings or Savings Type, Ugg, wanted to use this so much for my 2013 challenge with my group of couponers, its looks great even if I dont see my % on each screen. Thoughts Please, Thanks Nancy

  9. When you shop some place like Freddie’s, do you subtract the none grocery items (toys, clothes ext) before you put your info in the chart. I was thinking of using 1 chart for groceries and 1 for other things. If the chart can be download a second time.
    What exactly do you list as groceries? Pet food, Tp, paper towels, soap etc are they totaled in the grocery bill?
    Thanks for a great site.

    • Usually yes I will subtract the non-grocery household items from my totals. And yes you can download this a second time for another type of chart. I personally include toiletries like toothpaste, toilet paper and shampoos ect into my grocery budget – but not Pet Food. I am weird about my pet food (probably because I rarely get it cheap..ha ha and I don’t want it messing with my savings totals…) But I think you can do whatever you feel is best. Its up to you. Thanks for your great question!

  10. Hi. I have been using the spreadsheet, but just changed the name of the file (I think that was my mistake) and now it won’t update. Has anyone else had this problem? (it is still the macro-enabled type). I wanted to make two different spreadsheets (one for going out to eat savings). Thanks
