Tracking Your Savings

While I have used coupons for quite a few years now, it has only been this year that I have seriously gotten into couponing and looking for the deals. I also started rebating this year. To help me decided if spending time on my coupons is really worth it I decided to track how much I have been saving with my coupons. I only started tracking my coupon savings on September 24, 2008. I also believe I missed some of my receipts so these totals may be a little low. However, since September 24, 2008 I have saved $750.00 in coupons. Not bad for less then 2 months. I definitely think that this whole couponing thing is worth my time.

When you submit rebates you also need to track them to make sure that you get your money back. It was just this May that I started rebating so my totals are from May through today.

Judging by these numbers I could possibly hit $1,000.00 back in rebates this year. That is just amazing to me. Most of these rebates are for freebie items I picked up at Walgreens and Rite Aid. I love their rebate programs.

So how much have you saved this year? Do you track your savings and rebates?

I have been couponing and using rebates fro about two months. I have been keeping track of my purchases through my blog posts.

I do not know how much I have saved but I know that I am getting more for my money by the looks of my pantry, freezer and linen closets.

I have way more food, and household items now that i ahve begun using coupons, however I have been stil spending the same amount each month.

I do hope that you'll stop by for a visit soon.
