Track Spending With Me Through 2010! Week of 4/17/2010

Interested in tracking your spending with me? Refer to my original post here and my post here.

I finally found children's Foster Grant sunglasses at Rite Aid. Yeah! I had a raincheck for them. : ) I did not get overage on the sunglasses, as I've noticed that cashiers don't like to give overage when you have a raincheck, but I did get them for free. The can opener was not on sale or anything. My husband has been asking for an extra one and since I was buying all the Foster Grants I figured it would eat up the $5 that I get to spend from the $5/20 coupon - ie. it was free.

Oops, I left the Pledge wipes out of the picture above.  He, he.

Rite Aid
Spent OOP: $21.56
Store Coupons: $79.50
Manuf Coupons: $66.27
Rebates: $20.99
Real Cost to My Family: $0.57
Total Value of Products: $167.33 (I just used the sale value of the items.)
Total Saved: $166.76
% Saved: 99.66%

I went to GE, but somehow I've misplaced my receipts. I'll have to update this post when I find them.

As I get caught up - might take me a while - I'll post my year-to-date totals.

Let's encourage each other! Let me know how you did this past week. You are welcome to track your spending with me, or I'd also love to hear about your latest, greatest shopping trip.

Don't have a blog or web page to link, just post in the comments section.
