Frugal Friday Report


On Friday of each week (I know, I'm a little early), I plan to summarize a list of my weekly spending, savings and % savings.  I am hoping to show how much I am saving each week by using coupons and sales to my advantage.  I actually missed posting my Frugal Friday report last week due to my leftover Thanksgiving guests still being here!  This week's shopping was pretty good overall.  Take a look:

Here's a chart too:



Notice that I changed up the colors a little in the spirit of Christmas and to represent:
GREEN (Savings) = GOOD and RED (Spending) = Bad  :)


This past week was my best week of all - I spent the least ($71.06) and my savings percentage was the highest (63%).  I noticed myself grabbing food from my stockpile instead of needing to run out to the store.  It also helped that I snagged some great deals at Meijer this week.  Maybe it also helped that spent too much time chasing Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.... :)   Have a great weekend!
