Thanks to my friend Kristin for the heads up on this one!!!
I made money on the First Aid Kits and razors… I probably should have bought something practical like food with the overage, but I REALLY liked the pencil pouch! So I got it for a make up bag for my upcoming trip home! 🙂
I also went back just now to use some expiring RRs to buy my hubby a padfolio for school/church. He’s had his eye on it for a few weeks and asked me earlier this week if I would work towards getting him enough RRs to buy it so we didn’t have to spend money out of pocket for it. He was so sweet and I love that he thought of using coupons for it! Well, I had $6 that are expiring in the next couple days and I’m really not excited about anything at Walgreens next week so we went and got that for him. 🙂 I am now RRless! 😦
:::So here are my totals:::
86% Savings this week!
83% Savings for the month of July!
Over all, I did pretty well this month. It’s the first month I’ve tracked my spending so closely and I’ll be honest with you, I was a little shocked to see that I’d spent so much! My goal is to get spending down to $100 a month on food and toiletries, including taxes!! Next month may be a little off because of vacation, but I’ll be sure to keep you up to date on how #’s are looking! 🙂
