January Totals, yes a few weeks late!

So, without further ado, here are my January totals....drumroll please:

# of items: 232
Total before savings: $692.39
Store Savings: $188.92
Coupons: $190.99
# of Q's: 117
OOP: $321.87 ($21.87 over budget...boo!)
Total Savings: $370.52
Final Savings: 54%!!!!

YAY! I believe I wanted to do either 40 or 50% in total savings, and I exceeded that goal! I'm going to shoot for 50% this month (February). The month is half over and my spreadsheet shows that right now I'm at 47%...boo! I gotta get up there in the percentage to hit my 50% goal!

You spend almost $700 (before savings) for just the two of you a month? We are a family of four and do not even spend that. Wow.

yes, that's BEFORE savings....after savings is what is out of pocket (OOP). So I only spent a little over $300, but there's tons of food and cleaning stuff in the house, that's why it's called stockpiling. Buy a ton of it while it's at rock bottom price and with a Q, and you spend next to nothing on it!
