I went through all my receipts (i went shopping way too often!) and tallied up how much I actually spent with how much I saved, etc.
Here is the breakdown (this includes all groceries and household items, and I know this is a lot for a family of 3, with one of those being an infant, but that is what I am working on, getting the spending down by using coupons and other means):
What I would have spent if I actually bought everything at retail cost (granted, I wouldn't have bought many of these things if I weren't getting superb deals, but just to look at the numbers): $1174.98
What I saved using coupons, store sales, and rebates: $580.07
What I actually spent OOP:$609.53
Percentage of savings in March: 48.95%
Not bad, but I can definitely do better and still get everything we need for our family!
