    Thanks for sharing your totals Happy Girl! You are doing great! I also track my savings but I also include sale prices so my numbers include sales and coupons. I post the savings on the blog at the beginning of each quarter so I guess I'll be sharing my 3rd Q savings in a couple weeks. Hmmm....I had better catch up on entering the receipts into the spreadsheet! lol

    Nice. Glad its not just me. Its pretty neat to see how it adds up. I agree though, that total saved figure is nice as well. :-)

    HappyGirl08 - I started doing the same thing in January when I got really serious about couponing. I was amazed at the amount you can save with just coupons. Then I got lazy. Wonder how much I can save between now and the end of the year?? With just coupons?
    I also LOVE to see the "total savings" amount at the end of my HT receipts! Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, sorry. Another question. Since this blog is quiet I will post it here. ha! I like to keep a journal of how much coupon savings per month I have. I don't count vic or mvp, just coupons. I started that last year in order to prove to my roommate that I was not spending more $$ on the newspaper than I was saving.

    For a household of 2, I find that I save on average of 70.00 a month in just coupons. I'd say the paper is paid for. ha! I wonder if anyone else does this.

    I went to target the other day, not for school supplies though. They have a deal going now on certain items, buy 2 get a 5.00 gift card. I like charmin bath tissue so I was able to get 2 of the large pkgs of mega rolls for 15.99 each. I had 2 .25 off coupons and so that in combo with the 5.00 GC isn't bad.

    I also had some other target coupons for marie callendars items, some ice cream and bread. I purchased those items as a second order and was able to use my 5.00 gift card. So, I think that total was something like 12.00 that I got for 2.80. Not too shabby!
