Friday Finals – Year End

This is the last grocery summary for 2008!  This year has flown by.  We have been out of town for most of the week but we did do some shopping before we left.   However, I don’t have any of the receipts with me.  They are sitting neatly on my counter at home…

Instead of my posting my weekly savings I wanted to change it up a little this week.  I would love to see your yearly savings.  Even if you don’t track your savings comment and let me know what you have started to save monthly.  If you are a CVS shopper find your most recent CVS receipt and post the yearly savings amount on your receipt!!

Here are ours:

Grocery Savings since July: $4,108 (when I started tracking)
CVS Yearly Savings $1,304.72 (we started CVSing in April)

In the beginning of 2008 we were paying $450-$500 for all of our groceries and household expenses.  We are now spending on average $250 a month.  Finding this extra money we already had was the biggest “raise” we have ever gotten.

Leave a comment with your savings!!  Want to start tracking?  I use this free download savings tracker and enter once a week.
