I decided to add up my numbers to make sure that the extra effort of couponing was worth it. Here are my numbers for the week of 3/24-3/31. This includes all my grocery, health & beauty, and household needs shopping.
Total saved = $167.84
Cash spent = 50.98
CVS ECB's Earned = 25.00
I was also able to sell some of the items that I purchased. And I will be receiving some cash back in rebates. But I will not include these for simplicity sake. Anyway, there is no denying, it is worth the extra effort. Besides, it is really fun!
