It’s week one for us for 2010 and things are already off to a fun start.  I stayed busy as we got back into workshops and you guys got back into couponing, so this week for the first time my husband went out to coupon!  I’m very proud of him.  He chose to start small and went straight off the list with only two deviations (very good for him).

Total before sales and coupons: $77 and change (sorry he through away the receipt)
Total spent: $41.22
Total Saved: $36

This was actually with him using no coupons.  He needs to start small…  At least he printed a list of sale items first.  His two deviations: Beer for him and flowers for me.  It made up for the lack of coupons!

Update: Sorry I keep forgetting to share Swagbucks.  I did pretty good this week remembering to use it sometimes is tricky but I managed to stick with a daily average of 4 Swagbucks a day this week.  We are now up to 49 Swagbucks from searching, enough for a $5 Amazon gift card!

If you have no idea what I’m talk about go here.
