I keep a running total of the amount that I save just with coupons that I use during the month on groceries, household items, beauty items, and personal care items. At the end of the month I compare that total with the total that I spent out-of-pocket on those items to see how much I saved JUST using coupons! This month’s total is…….. I spent $257.03 and SAVED $ 262.04 just with coupons!! That’s a 50.4 % savings on everything! I was $22.97 UNDER budget this month!
My grocery,household, beauty, and personal care items budget for the month is $280.
My total savings for the past 11 months has been $4055.83 JUST with coupons!
So for next month keep a running total of every coupon you use in a notebook or on a sheet of paper, you might just be surprised at the end of month with how much you’ve saved!
