52 week grocery, etc recap

December 27th, 2008 at 03:08 pm

I know the year isn't technically over yet, but my 52-week period of tracking grocery, dog food, & household supplies ended today, and I did a recap. Before coupons, our spending for the year would have been $10,173.39. We saved $3,199.51, or 31%, so the after-coupon spending was $6,973.88. Average per week is down to $134.11. As I mentioned in last week's recap, that's down from $177.95 the first month. I'm quite proud, even if I do say so myself! I've mentioned this before, but that's for two people and nine big dogs, so I think it's pretty good.

    That's a whole lot of coupon use. I was excited today because the local Kroger started offering double coupons up to 99 cents every day, so mine are going further than they used to!

    thriftorama, Kroger is one of my favs (although here it's a Dillons). They have some awesome sales, plus the extra doubles helps a lot.

    That is amazing! I think I might borrow your idea for 2009 and start tracking how much I am spending on groceries/household supplies.
