My savings rate is pitiful this month. I like to see it between 70-75% or more. I know I’ve purchased a lot of items without coupons for the holidays & kids. That trend seems to be continuing into December. Oh, well. I’m still under budget for the month. Also, Derrick bought a 1987 jeep wrangler (he didn’t have a personal vehicle), so I dropped our grocery budget to $280 from $300 to accommodate the additional insurance cost.
|Total Shelf Cost:||$ 568.94||Monthly Budget:||$ 280.00|
|Total Coupon Savings:||$ 276.55||Variance:||$ 52.42|
|Total Savings:||$ 341.36|
|Amount Paid (after rebates):||$ 227.58||Rebates Owed:||$ 10.98|
|Savings Rate:||60.00%||Amount Paid (exc. Rebates)||$ 238.56|
My weekly average was $59.64 (not too bad)
How did you do in November?
