Weekly savings

So, I have been trying really hard to be a frugal mommy. We are going to try to lay out a budget soon for everything as soon as I get the house stocked. We will follow it to the letter and I hope to start getting out of credit card debt. We don't have much but I want to pay those boogers off and cut them up for good! Here is what I saved this week!

Total spent without coupons and savings: $339.45
Total Out of Pocket: $145.32
Total Savings: $194.13

I saved 57% by just using coupons. I also would not have spent this much but diapers had a great deal and I stocked and stocked on diapers so we are now set until the summer. I also had to buy some shaving cream and some other things that I did not have a coupon for. YAY! I am learning slowly but surely.

we used to live by a budget. we have a good spreadsheet (yes, we are engineers and nerds... we have spreadsheets for lots of stuff) if you would like me to send you a copy! we have kind of gotten away from it lately, but still try to stick to it most of the time. good luck!
