A few of my friends were curious about the amount of money I save during a month. While I knew I was doing a good job saving money and getting good deals, I really had not kept track of my savings. So I sat down and created a spreadsheet that would reflect my OOP (out of pocket expense), the amount I saved at the store, the total amount of groceries/products I got and the percentage saved during that trip. Drum roll please.....
Total OOP $201.12, Saved $287.58, Total worth $488.70, 58.85% saved
This works out to be $50.28 each week for groceries (only $.28 over budget).
Total OOP $108.44, Saved $401.86, Total worth $510.30, 78.75% saved
This works out to be $27.11 each week for drug store related purchases.
So I ended up getting $999.00 worth of product for $309.56 ($77.39 combined weekly OOP). I hope to improve each month. We'll see how it works out.
Hope you had a great month!
