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 had a decent week last week and was able to get in one pretty big shopping trip with a few stock-up items (more on this Meijer shopping trip here).  I did go a little over budget, so I will work at keeping my spending low this week.  Here's how my week looked:

Week # Start End Spending Savings Savings %

4 1/21 1/27  $    40.44  $   37.69 48%
5 1/28 2/3  $    97.22  $ 188.26 66%

11 3/11 3/17  $    63.54  $ 107.08 63%
12 3/18 3/24  $    28.97  $   17.02 37%
13 3/25 3/31  $    59.78  $   69.93 54%
14 4/1 4/7  $    86.97  $ 132.77 60%
15 4/8 4/14  $    30.60  $   52.85 63%
16 4/15 4/21  $    53.13  $   76.48 59%
17 4/22 4/28  $    49.01  $ 120.33 71%
18 4/29 5/5  $    64.97  $   62.30 49%
19 5/6 5/12  $    60.09  $ 171.01 74%
20 5/13 5/19  $    67.52  $ 105.57 61%

 Here is the graph:


















I spent a total of $67.52 and saved $105.57 for a savings percentage of 61%.  My average weekly spending is at $58.34, still a little under my $60 budget.  I believe my total went over because I had to buy cat food (a 17-lb bag) and didn't even get it on sale.  I really need to stock up next time it's on sale!  I was happy because I stocked up on barbecue sauce (6 bottles), kielbasa (6 packages), Crystal Light Drinks (9 boxes) and Super Pretzels (4 boxes).

I got some greats deals at the Meijer Super Sale today - more Crystal Light, Kraft Salad Dressing (money maker) and $3.99 40oz bag of frozen chicken breasts!  Yahoo!
