Frugal Friday Report


On Friday of each week, I plan to summarize a list of my weekly spending, savings and % savings. Hopefully this will show how much my spending decreases due to my new thrifty shopping techniques. ;)

This week's spending is an improvement from last week (phew!) and more in line with my decreased spending trend.  It was making out to be a terrific week, then I made a last minute trip to Meijer to get my ingredients for my Freezer Friends chili.  I had to buy lots of canned goods (beans, tomatoes, etc) with hardly any coupons.  My lack of planning cost me!

Here is my report:

Here is a graph too (yes, I'm a graphing freak!):




My saving percentage stayed the same as last week at 53%, but at least I spent less than last week!  I am overall just a little concerned with my monthly grocery spending being over $400, but I still hope to see it drop lower and lower each week.  As I looked over previous month's grocery spending (before I started clipping coupons), it was averaging around $500, so $400 is definitely an improvement!
