Not Going to Hit My 55% Savings Goal

Well, today is March 31st, the last day of the month. I did a lot of hounding over the weekend to catch up to make my 55% goal, but it's NOT going to happen, unless a miracle happens. I've been tallying up my weekend hounding savings, but right now, I'm at only 46%! The beginning of the month killed me because I stocked up on a ton of fruit and meat, which on the receipts when it's at rock bottom, doesn't come up as a sales price. It's mostly at Shop Rite where I do my big grocery shopping. I'll go to A & P or Pathmark for REALLY good sales only. Ah well. Can't win em all right? I'll shoot for 55% again for next month.......

Isn't it amazing how competitive you get with hounding? I keep trying to save 2-3% over the previous month! DH thinks I'm nuts...

Yup, I try to do the same, but I didn't do so good in the beginning of the month, now it's killing me. All well, I still did pretty good the second half of the month :)
