I went way over budget again this month. This is for two reasons. One, I have less time to devote to couponing and therefore more money out of pocket. Also, we have been feeding an extra mouth for the past few months with our foster child. I did adjust the budget for him, but apparently not by enough. Well, enough excuses....here it is:
Shelf Cost: $959.59
Manufacturer Coupons: $278.48
Store Coupons/ RRs/ ECBs: $291.66
Mail-In Rebates: $26.98
Tax Paid: $18.18
All of this shows that had a savings of 62.23% for the month. I miss the months when that number was higher =( Oh well, it's the start of a new month!
