December Totals!

I had to go back and re-do my totals. I posted a blog earlier, but I had added my last two trips to NOVEMBER, not DECEMBER, so here's my 'real' totals.

Number of items:142
Totals before savings: $473.18
Store savings: $122.07
Coupons: $91.66
Percentage of savings: 45%
# of coupons: 68
Total OOP: $264.34
Total of savings: $208.84
Final Savings: 44%

We have a weekly budget of $75 a week for groceries (it used to be $150 when I first started 'hounding', then $100, now down to $75 a week. $75 times four is $300, so we actually were BELOW budget by almost $45. I hope I can keep this up.....January's goal will be 45-50%.
