MARCH MADNESS...NOT the Basketball Kind


Ok, here are my FOOD BUDGET spending totals for MARCH 2009.
I am listing subtotals for each store I purchased from in March.
Grab a cup of something, this could take awhile.

These Totals include Food, Toiletries/HBA, Pet Supplies, Cleaning Products & tax where applicable.
We are a family of 5. No kids under 13.

TOTAL Out of Pocket.............................$855.39
TOTAL Coupons & Store Sales Savings....$1940.45
TOTAL Value of Items Purchased.............$2795.84
TOTAL Savings % for MARCH......................69.415%

I've decided NOT to track CVS ECBs & Walgreen's RRs. They will be included when used on purchases under "Coupons". Rebates will also show up in the Monthly Totals when spent, but I'll keep track of what rebates are received monthly.

REBATES RECV'D. IN MARCH

Gravy Train.......2x $1 Qs
Suave.................Free Item Q
CVS/Hershey....$5 Gift Card
Rite-Aid............$40.98
Samy..................$7.99
Dr. Pepper.........Free Item Q
Duncan Hines....$2.25
Walgreen's........$56.07 Gift Card

TOTAL Value.....$118.88


$855.39 is fairly good for the month. Way over my Low Spend Goal for March of $250.00 but I've already justified that.
Damn you to hell Heinz, Hormel & Kraft! lolol

My best 3 Store Savings Totals were Rite-Aid at 78.78%, Walgreen's at 82.13% & CVS at an amazing 94.50%!

This closes out the March spending.
Onward to April and let's see if I can keep it under $500 for Out of Pocket this month & break 70% in Savings.

  1. Even if you did overspend, you still had a great overall percentage of savings!
