Anyway, I have finally finished going through my two papers and clipping coupons I wanted and saving those I don't for my coupon exchange club. This is also the time that I try to re-organize my coupon binder. And I found out I need more baseball card sheet protectors!!! I thought I did last week but now I am officially out of room in those that I have! So I guess my shopping list this week just got a bit bigger.
After completing the clipping and the organizing, it is time to sit down and tally up how I did this last week in my savings calculator. And tonight, I have decided to share with you how I did and how I arrive at that number:
Week ending Saturday 9/10/2011
|Store Names||Total Cost, if no Coupons||Coupons||Actual Spent||Percentage Saved|
|Other (this week: Wal-Mart & Petco)||$175.17||$20.57||$154.60||11.74%|
Overall, I give myself a C this week. Although I was under my goal of 25% saved this week, I did score some big wins.
- New exercise outfit for $12 at Wal-Mart which if I had bought it at the beginning of Summer would have cost me $25+.
- $.50 off per gallon at the pump. Thank you Bi-Lo !!!! That made our price per gallon $2.99.
- B1G1 1/2 off Walgreen's brand scored us two cans of nuts for $5.00 and I put money on my Walgreen's prescription card for the next trip.
- Party favors and wrapping paper paid for by my coupon savings at Wal-Mart for Jea's Birthday next Sunday!
