April and May grocery totals

Posted June 1, 2010

Each month I share my grocery and drug store totals for the month so you can see how much money you can really save using the techniques and good deals I post each week. I was a little behind on my data entry for April but finished entering April and May receipts this weekend. Total spent also includes any expenses for procuring coupons (coupon clipping service, ebay, etc). Here are the totals:

April 2010

Subtotal of products purchased before sale and coupons: $929.21

Amount saved: $692.47

Amount spent: $247.90

Percent saved: 75%

 

May 2010

Subtotal of products purchased before sale and coupons: $1109.92

Amount saved: $819.65

Amount spent: $290.25

Percent saved: 74%

 

January -  May 2010 Totals

Subtotal of products purchased before sale and coupons: $5862.99

Amount saved: $4405.11

Amount spent: $1538.60

Percent saved: 75%

Average spent per month: $307.72
 

Anyone else tracking their monthly grocery expenses? How are you doing?

    Great job momof2! 60% savings is excellent! And you are even able to give to charity - very well done.

    I am not doing as good as you BUT I am regularly saving 60% which is a good number for my family and the amount of time I can invest in managing my coupons. I have not been traveling as much so I don't have as much time to file and toss....but there have been some great deals out there! My freezer is stocked and my pantry is full...plus I have been able to donate a good amount to charity as well.
