On Friday of each week, I plan to summarize a list of my weekly spending including how much I saved and savings percentage. I am hoping to show how much I am saving and improving each week by using my new savvy shopping skills...
I was able to stay under budget this week again (I spent $53.23), probably due to the slow sales week at the stores. Here's how my week looked:
|Week #||Start||End||Spending||Savings||Savings %|
|1||12/31||1/6||$ 62.37||$ 56.53||48%|
|2||1/7||1/13||$ 59.15||$ 131.69||69%|
|3||1/14||1/20||$ 52.91||$ 94.17||64%|
|4||1/21||1/27||$ 40.44||$ 37.69||48%|
|5||1/28||2/3||$ 97.22||$ 188.26||66%|
|6||2/4||2/10||$ 51.74||$ 81.17||61%|
|7||2/11||2/17||$ 89.21||$ 104.29||54%|
|8||2/18||2/24||$ 39.64||$ 91.00||70%|
|9||2/25||3/3||$ 56.41||$ 69.49||55%|
|10||3/4||3/10||$ 53.23||$ 96.32||64%|
Here is the chart:

I saved a total of $96.32, for a savings percentage of 64%. I am getting a little low on some groery basics though, so my next couple weeks might go above my $60 budget. My weekyl spending averages out at $60.23, so I am spot on!
My favorite deals this week include the free dial foaming soap, $0.44 cent packages of Archway cookies, $0.39 boxes of Post cereal (I used an additional $2/1 coupon), $1.99/lb Angus Ground Beef from Round (more on these deals at Macomb Money Savers) and the free Covergirl Makeup at Rite Aid this week (more on this at Coupon Crazy Chrys).
Also, don't forget about the Super Saturday Sale tomorrow (3/12) at Meijer! To see some of the great deals at match-ups, head on over to Macomb Money Savers!
