Many of you throughout this year have wondered, how does Shelly keep track of her monthly shopping totals? I know, because you asked me. Let me tell you the secret. I didn’t come up with it on my own! I don’t believe in reinventing the wheel, when others have done a great job.
I save my receipts (all over the dining room table and couch much to hubby’s chagrin). Around once a week, I enter them all into the savings tracker and Viola! I know what my savings percentage is, what rebates should be coming in the mail, and when I go over budget.
I only enter my grocery store and drug store receipts. I set my monthly budget at $150, but don’t give myself too hard of a time if I go over.
Are you ready to join me in tracking your savings this year?
Do you have a Thrifty idea? Did you save a ton of money this week? Do you have a Thrifty deal you want to share?
