So I actually should have shared this sometime last week but I'm a bit behind on this. I hadn't printed out my current budget sheet (which I keep in my checkbook) which means I hadn't taken last months out and gathered all my receipts together to share. And I feel like I'm missing a trip - this just doesn't seem right for some reason. I've gone through the history on the blog here though and looked through all of my receipts. As far as I can tell - this is right. Go us!
7/31 Kroger - 18.47, saved 32.74 (66%)
8/1 Marsh - 30.45, saved 13.03 (30%)
8/7 Walmart - 7.49, saved 6.00 (in coupons, clearance saved me 6.00 also) (?)
8/8 Marsh - 50.13, saved 14.80 (23%)
8/14 Walmart - 6.94, saved 6.04, (50%)
8/14 Marsh - 14.48, saved 1.89 (12%)
8/14 Walmart - 12.36, saved 1.01 (?)
8/15 Marsh - 62.25, saved 40.72 (40%)
8/22 Marsh - 84.14, saved 23.00 (22%)
Total spent for the month: 286.71
Total saved for the month: 145.49
Appx savings for the month: 34%
So - under budget (as far as I can tell) and pathetic savings - not a bad combo I guess! Here's hoping for a better month this time around.
