Well, I have been diligently tracking my spending and savings in January to see how much I’m actually saving our family by finding deals, tracking down coupons, etc. Here is what I found:

  • 90% savings at CVS- Wow! I spent $37.77 and saved $350.81. Find out more how I play the CVS game to save here. Although I spent more this month that I planned, I still saved a ton and will attempt to spend less next month.
  • 62% savings at Fry’s (Kroger affiliated). My goal is to be at 75% savings here, but at the beginning of the month I didn’t get as close to that mark as I wanted. My later trips (view here) were close to 70%, so I’m getting closer to my goal.
  • 75% savings at Walgreens- right on target, now if I can get it closer to my CVS savings.

Next month, I’ll let you know how I did and hopefully I will also have a section on “Earning” through Swagbucks, paid surveys (i.e. SendEarnings), and blogging (through affiliates like LinkShare. If you are interested you can, Join LinkShare Today!)
