I had made so many shopping trips this week that I'm just summing it up for you. I used up my coupons that I normally use before they expire and stocked up on all the great items that have been on sale. I did get a rain check for more granola bars.
Here is my weekly summary:
I spent $164.69
I saved $99.43
I went over budget this week but for my monthly budget I was only over $31.56; good news is I received $20 in rebates this week in the mail so really I was only over $11.56. Not too bad.
Total Shelf Cost: $900.69
Monthly Budget: $500.00
Amount Paid : $531.56
Variance: $(31.56) (I did receive $20 in rebates this week)
Total Savings in coupons and discounts: $369.13
Savings Rate: 40.98%
