Sorry I haven't had the "usual" posts up yet. I'm nearing the end of this pregnancy & it's really starting to take a toll on me....I promise I'll try to be more on top of it this coming week, assuming of course, baby doesn't come early!
Every year, I track my "savings" to see how well (or not) I did using coupons. Here are my "stats" for calendar year 2010:
Before coupons total = $9,838.42
After coupons total = $5,690.99
Total coupons savings = $3,968.79
Total # coupons redeemed = 1653
Total # items purchased = 2948
Average % savings = 46%
I earned a total of $505.37 in rebates.
I also saved 85c by using re-usable bags. This is something that I want to increase during 2011. Not only is it good for the environment, but it puts money back in my pocket!
I earned $428.70 in giftcards. This includes those won as a prize, a reward or received as a gift.
