2019 4th Quarter Review..........Small Finances Year End Totals

The fourth quarter of 2019 is in the books now.
Let's see where some of my small pots of savings look like for the Year End.
These stats are all effective as of December 31st, 2019.

*  Rolled coins--$14.00.  Two rolls of dimes, a roll of nickels and three rolls of pennies.  Rolled coins have taken a big hit since Hubs stopped working for a living. lolz

*  Found Change--$48.03  Finding money is the best!  Nobody can argue with that, right? 8-))

*  Refunds & "Post Coupons"--$206.96 Mostly Weis(PMITA)Markets and Rite-Aid.

*  Cash Rebates--
   * Ibotta--$349.98
   * SavingStar--$86.25
   * Checkout51--$40.75
   * ShopAtHome--$9.63(I think I need $20 to cash out of this.)

Total.........$745.77 (not counting ShopAtHome) to put toward the grocery spending in December.

My OOP spending on groceries came to $4,660.39 for 2019.
Add in that $745.77 toward the grocery spending and the food spending drops to a Grand Total Spent of $3,914.62 for 2019.

Do you stash non-income money aside to put toward a goal?
Tell us about it and what strategies work for you in savings money!



  1. That found money is a thing for you!! I am now actively looking, will let you know how it goes!

  2. Excellent end to the year. SO great that you found almost $50 in found coins!

  3. I have never totaled my found money before, but I think you cheat so..... game on girlfriend.

  4. May 2020 be a marvelous year for you!
    I like rolled coins; there is a quiet satisfaction in creating them rather than trying to spend them so there is no change around.

  5. My bank still has a free coin-counting machine, so I keep chage in a jar, bedside, and transfer it to a larger container throughout the year. This typically becomes part of my vacation fund. -- Lori K
