January Finals...

In keeping up with keeping better track of what I spend/save, etc.  I thought I'd start a monthly post and share with you exactly what those numbers are.  So, here's a look at the month of January!

Retail price of all items purchased = *$634.47
Amount I saved w/coupons, rewards, ecb's,etc. = $391.51
Amount I spent out of pocket = $242.96 ($23.26 of that was for newspapers or coupons I ordered).
Amount of ECB's, Register Rewards, Rebates "earned" = $111.70
Average weekly spending = $60.74 (for a family of 5)

*This amount includes all spending for anything I purchased at the following stores:  Dillon's, Price Cutter, Walgreens, CVS, Staples, WalMart.
The only expense not included is prescriptions and eating out (which we don't do often) as that is another budget category in my home.
