Frugal Friday Report


On Friday of each week, I plan to summarize a list of my weekly spending including how much I saved and my savings percentage.  I am hoping to show how much I am saving and improving each week by using my new savvy shopping skills...

I went a little over budget this week, due to the great Kraft 100 calorie snacks deal going on this past week (and now too - more on this here at Bargains to Bounty).  This coming week is going to be great though, because I get to use all those $2 and $3 Catalinas and get tons of free groceries!  Here's how this week looked:

18 4/29 5/5  $    64.97  $   62.30 49%

Here's my chart:

                                           (click on graph to enlarge)

I spent a total of $64.97 ($4.97 over budget) and saved a total of $62.30, which is only 49%.  My percentages seem to normally be closer to 60%, so I was a little disappointed.  Next week should be a good week though and hopefully my savings will look better.


Have a great Mother's Day weekend!
