Step 5: Enter more receipts, view graphs, and more! Once you’ve entered some information it will show up here.
You’ll see your Month to Date and Year to Date Savings for each store and also your overall totals. You can also graphs if you are a more visual person.
If you are a social butterfly, you can also share that savings on Facebook and Twitter after you track it.
One of the joys of tracking over time is that if you have a bad week your prior trips help to even it all out. The goal here is save 50-60% off everything you buy, some trips will be much higher and some will be lower. Over time though you’ll really see your savings add up!
A Few Tips (based on questions):
- Track your store sales based on the full retail price of items. We want to only grab sales and buying items at the right time is part of the work.
- If you buy gas gift cards or other items that don’t normally add into your grocery budget, don’t add those in to your total spent. Just use this to track normal purchases. There isn’t a way to enter notes (plus after a year of data you don’t want to have to come back and look at notes).
- Track on the go with the Southern Savers mobile app!
