We all know you can save money by couponing, but when life gets busy it can be hard to stay on track. One of the best ways to stay motivated is to track your savings. When you see how much you’re saving, it helps you to see that it really is worth your time and energy.
Southern Savers has a great tool to help you quickly and easily track your savings.
You will need to log-in or create a FREE account to access the feature.
How To Use The Savings Tracker:
Step 2: After you log-in, you’ll be taken to the Dashboard. Click add more receipts. (You can also get here directly by clicking on Savings Tracker in the top menu bar that appears once you are logged in.
Step 3: Select a store from the drop-down menu and click go.
Step 4: Enter the information from your receipt and click save.
Step 5: Enter more receipts, view graphs, and more! Once you’ve entered some information it will show up here.
That’s it! You can enter all of your information in for year to date averages, savings, and more. When all of the numbers are laid out for you, it can be very encouraging.
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!
In 2014 I’m are adding an “other” store option to let you track stores not covered by Southern Savers. I should have that added within the next weeks.
