Not Extreme...but still good!
I was actually disappointed today when I tallied up what I spent versus what I saved. Had I paid full retail price this trip would have cost me $118.14. I paid $45.11 but earned a $1.76 UP so I brought my total down to $43.35.
And...I was disappointed because I only saved 63 percent. But then ~ I got a grip. Not so long ago I would have paid $118.14 for this and not thought a thing about it. Now I do think about it, spend a bit of time preparing and save $75.00.
My goal from the beginning was to save 50 to 75 percent off of my grocery bill...and I am consistently achieving that goal. I may not have a garage full of items but I am down to spending about $300.00 a month and am trying really hard to get that down to $250.00 in May. One step at a time!
