Each Saturday, I plan to post a summary from my coupon/store sales. I like to save 50-100% off of original prices for groceries, household items, and toiletries. It requires strategy, planning, and patience.
Here is the summary from this year so far:
Original Price: $308.88
Store Sales Savings: $75.33
Coupon Savings: $85.74
Total Savings: $161.07
Final Price: $147.81
Savings percentage: 52%
Not a bad start to 2011. I hope to blog the first of the week about my coupon binder and my coupon strategy. I think of it as part of "my job" and I have figured out a quick and simple way to clip, organize and use coupons. Everybody has a different way to handle their coupons but I have found after YEARS of using them that the way that I currently handle them is what is best for me.
