How Much Can I Save in a Year? June Update!

 It's summertime!! Which means I've had more time to devote to planning out our grocery trips and utilizing coupons and deals better than I can during the busy months of school.  We also had quite a few opportunities where we "made" money this month by selling books to Half Price Books, returning some gifts that have needed to be returned for quite a while, our mortgage going down a bit, and selling textbooks on Amazon!

June Savings 

2011 Total Savings

Best of Savings

Free Items this month with coupons:

-Burger King sandwiches
-Tank top from Wal-Mart
-3 pack bar of soap
-Almost free...maternity top from Target (just $1 after coupon)

A Little Savings Tidbit

-Two words--Target coupons! So often you can double up on your savings at Target! They accept a manufacturer's coupons and a Target coupon for items, making the savings great! Also, they often have clothing coupons and other high-value coupons for items beyond food and toiletries.  Print these at the beginning of the month...they go fast! You can often use a coupon like this on a clearance item and get some great items for free or close to it!
