So, this is how I did for January:
|Total Shelf Cost:||$ 1,199.97|
|Total Coupon Savings:||$ 207.94||Variance:||$ (738.49)|
|Total Savings:||$ 461.48||Tax Paid||$23.67|
|Amount Paid (after rebates):||$ 738.49||Rebates Owed:||$ -|
|Savings Rate:||38.46%||Amount Paid (exc. Rebates)||$ 738.49|
Wow, what a difference coupons and strategic shopping can make! I saved over $400 for the month alone! These amounts were including the times I gassed up the car, purchasing newspapers, and dining out. Really, it's not so bad at all! I'm pleased with these results and hope the numbers get bigger, which I think they will.
