2009 Savings Summary! Please Check this out!

I am not posting this to Boast! I am simply sharing this with all of you, just to let you know that you really can save a lot of money by using coupons & matching them to weekly sales. Trust me, if I can do this (I am not the smartest-especially not in math-just ask my 5th Grade Son!LOL!) than you can do it too! It does not take a Rocket Scientist to use coupons & Save Money!

Why not make a Resolution for 2010 to learn how to use coupons & save money? Stick around at Tips From A Mom of 3 to learn how!

Now for the Numbers- Drum Roll, please........
In 2009 my Family spent a Grand Total of $3,704.59! That averages out to be about $309 a month, or $78 a week! That's not too bad considering that we have a Family of 5, and a Big Dog! This amount is mostly for groceries, Health/beauty care items, and coupons & printer ink to get the savings!
We saved $7,139.29 by using Coupons & Sales!!!! That averages out to be saving about $595 a month or $149 a week!
Wowza! Using coupons really does save a lot of money!
*Tip: I save each & every one of my receipts, and every week I record/keep track of my spending & savings. That is how I am able to have these numbers. If you are not tracking your spending/savings then I highly recommend doing so starting in 2010! It really shows how much money you are saving & it helps to make you realize that spending a little extra time "couponing" really does save you a lot of money!
I would love to hear about how much you have Spent or Saved in 2009! If you'd like to share please leave a comment below!


  1. Amazing job with the savings! That is just incredible - I am going to try to track my savings/spending in 2010 - hope I can show as good a savings as you have!!

  2. I like hearing that because I save all my receipts and copy my rebates that I send in, too. This year I'm depositing all rebate checks into a savings account and my coupon savings will go toward the next vacation.

  3. You couldn't have posted this at a better time. I was beginning to think I hadn't done so well. This was my first year. And, here's my totals: Spent: $3,526.67 Saved: $6,451.29. I can't begin to thank you enough for all that you do.

  4. I didn't keep track of my savings this year, but seeing your numbers makes me want to get back in the habit. Congrats on the saving and Happy New Year!

  5. Thank You for all the comments!!! This has made a Great Start to my New Year!
