Last week I was able to save 64% using sales and coupons! These savings are for the week of 7/17 - 7/23.
How did you do?
Subtotal before sales and coupons: $235.13
Total saved: $150.75
Total paid: $84.38
% Saved: 64%
My weekly budget is $80/week so I was over budget by $4.48 last week. I'll try and make up for it this week.
I shopped at Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, CVS and Walgreens.
To figure out the percentage you saved:
1.) Add the Total Saved and the Total Paid to get the Subtotal Before Sales and Coupons.
2.) Take the Total Saved amount divided by the Subtotal Before Sales and Coupons amount.
3.) The number you get is the % Saved. So if the number is .64 on the calculator after you divide the amounts according the instructions above, you saved 64%.
