Savings Spreadsheet

I was curious how much money I was saving by using coupons. I had BJ cook up this amazing Excel file to track my savings. I have found that tracking my savings has encouraged me to want to save more. I even had him put in two columns that showed coupons that I used from the newspaper to see if using coupons would more than pay for my newspaper subscription. It has. By a lot. And it's only been 3 months.

I have put together a sample of my spreadsheet and how I use it. If you are good with Excel and can figure thigns out, you may want to just jump to the bottom of this post. If you still can't figure it out, come back and read this.



Click here :Coupon Savings Example

Line 2: Doubler Transaction

Simply put, I bought 5 cans at .60 a piece and I had a $1/5 coupon. Insert "=1/5" or ".2" in the coupon column, not $1. The savings in the columns is for each individual item. So, $1/5=$.20/can. This was a coupon I printed off the internet so that is where I put it. Since I doubled it, I put an "x" in the doubler column. Then shows final price, savings, and %.

Line 3:  2 Types of Coupons

Rite Aid had Dove Shampoo on sale for 2/$7 so I put this sale price in as a store coupon to begin. I then saw on the shelf that they were $4.99 regularly so I put that in as the regular price. I had a BOGO coupon, which would save me $3.50 on one (or $1.75 on two) and it was from the newspaper so I put it in the coupon insert column. I then had an Up Rewards Video coupon (off the internet) and that saved me more. Bada-bing, the spreadsheet works its magic.

Line 4:  Catalina

Pretty self explanatory. Received a $1 catalina from Albertson's and used it on a non-sale item.

Line 5: Store Coupon, Manufacture Coupon, and doubler

Entered regular price of pizza at that store (because that is what I would have paid there), priced matched it to another store for $4 and entered as store coupon, used $1 internet coupon and doubled.

Line 6 and 7: Kohl's coupons

This one was tricky. I had bought these 4 items and used 2 $10 off coupons but I couldn't just enter it in. So I got creative. Two items were normally $19.99 but were on clearance... and then took off the 1st $10 coupon to make my store coupon make them $2.99. Same for second. Then I combined the two together to get my final price of $4.22. It helped that I had my receipt handy so if the numbers didn't work out I could move them some more. Probably too complicated for most people to bother with.

Line 8: Negative Balance

Any number in (  ) is overage... Or money the store paid me to buy the item! :) Great way to keep track of free items!

I include coupons stuck to the front of the paper (like from Kohl's), restaurant, craft store, and coupons found in the Parade, etc as newspaper coupons. I wouldn't have them without the paper. (But this only includes Kohl's coupons so far ontop of coupon inserts!)

Stock Up Price on Chicken Noodle and Tomato Soup at Target

Target has Chicken Noodle and Tomato Soup priced at $.55 a can this week. Combine this with a $1/5 coupon and that makes it $.35/can.  This is a separate coupon from the Cream of Chicken soup.  Or, SS 10/2 had a $.40/2 coupon as well.

Stay Warm!

Sorting Through Sales

Just because it is on sale or on a promotion doesn't mean it is a great price. For example, take a look at a snippet from this week's Smith's ad:
I have told you about the chili, soup, and butter deal and how coupons make this deal even better. This means everything on the promotion is a good deal, right? Not necessarily. Take the cereal in the corner for example. Even with a Kellogg's coupon, this is not a very good deal. The store wants you to think, "Hmm... I'm here and I need cereal so I will buy the one that is on the buy ten promotion because that has to be a good deal." This particular cereal goes on sale frequently for around $2. Or, there may be a promotion for another type of cereal that is actually less expensive than the advertised promotion.

Alright, Stephanie. So how do I know which deals are good and which ones aren't? Honestly, the best advice I can give is to pay attention to the price of items you frequently buy. I keep a mental note of what a "good price" is. During the summer I bought a lot of chili without coupons and I knew it was $1.50+ per can. When I saw it on sale for $.99, I knew that was a better price and that I should stock up on a few more cans. Then, when I saw the coupons to go along with it, I knew I had better really stock up! For another example, I will not pay more than $1.00/box on cereal because I know I can always get it for that price. I may have to wait awhile, but there will always be a cereal promotion.

Retail and spending in general is all about what you are willing to pay. You have to decide what that amount is.

Stock Up Price on Butter

Fred Meyer (Smith's) Butter Deal:
Part of their "Buy 10, Save $5" Promotion. For awesome deals on chili and soup to combine with this, click here.

Challenge or Land O Lakes Butter $2.49

Use  $0.55/1 Challenge Butter Product
Or use $.55/1 Challenge butter 
Or use $.55/1 Challenge Butter
Or use $.55/1 Challenge Butter from previous marked package
Or use $0.75/1 Challenge Product 11/14/2010 SS (expires 12/31/11)
Final Price as low as $1.74

*There may be a coupon on the inside of the cardboard, too. I just opened a new package this week and discovered a .55 off coupon in the package. Sweet!

Knowing Where to Look for Coupons

These are just a list of my favorites. There are many coupon sites!! But make sure to check these out!

Coupons.com: Coupons are updated, taken away, or changed periodically throughout the month however they are "reset" on the first. Coupons are on first come, first serve basis. They can be printed twice. May see a link for these coupons from other websites with "bricks.coupons.com". This is from the same site yet you may not find them on coupons.com. To print these coupons twice, hit the back button on your browser (twice if a message pops up saying data needs to be resent.

coupons.com

Red Plum and Smart Source: A few more coupons not found in their newspaper inserts. (I check Smart Source more frequently than Red Plum.)

redplum.com
smartsource.com


Better Crocker or Pillsbury: Often has slightly higher coupon values than other sites. These are reset on the first business day of the month and are on a first come, first serve basis.  These sites have the same generator so if you reach your print limit on one, you reach your print limit on the other. Not sure there is an advantage to joining both, but I have.

http://www.bettycrocker.com/
http://www.pillsbury.com/

Kellogg's: Average value coupons off Kellogg's cereal and products. This is usually the only place other than inserts where you can find these coupons.

www.kelloggs.com

Procter and Gamble: often has free samples and coupons. Can only be used quarterly so look for things you will use. They update their site periodically so keep checking back. This website will also tell you when the next P&G insert will be coming out. They also have a Home Made Simple coupon mailer. I recommend getting this! Check to see if they are available. (I have already requested mine so I don't know if this link will work.)

http://pgeverydaysolutions.com/
Home Made Simple


*** Worried about giving away your email? I created an email address for the soul purpose of signing up for these promotions and coupons. If you use gmail, you do not have to give your real or full name. For things that need to be mailed, you will need to provide your address but I have never had problems with giving this out on these sites. Always check the privacy policies.***

Movie Coupons

Christmas is coming whether you like it or not. Check out the movie coupons from coupons.com and then check out this list of matches at Wal-Mart. Some titles include Alvin and the Chipmunks, Marley & Me, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Or, you may want to hang on to them until Black Friday. Stores such as Target and Shopko deeply discount their movies, especially "older" or "less popular" movie titles.

Thank you, Fabulously Frugal!

Albertson's 11/6-11/8

Cereal for a dollar? I think so!

Doubles again for those with Albertson's. Check out the links and watch for my list tomorrow! I will also add more as they come in! They will usually post Sunday evening what deals they found that were unadvertised.

Walgreen's and Rite Aid week of 11/6

Fabulously Frugal's Top 10 Walgreen's deals: includes Free Baking Powder, Blistex, Crest, and Carmex.
Krazy Coupon Ladies Walgreen's deals: (Way too long for me to sort through, but here you go)

*Remember Register Rewards are used like cash on your next purchase. So you will pay $.99 for the Crest Toothpaste but you will receive $1 towards your next purchase... which could be your Purelle hand sanitizer on your next transaction.

The only Rite Aid deals I thought were worth it from the Krazy Coupon Lady:

Colgate Toothpaste $3.50
Buy 1, Receive $3.50 +Up Reward
Use $0.50/1 Colgate Toothpaste, any 4 oz. or larger from SS 10/30
Pay $3.00, Receive $3.50 +Up Reward
Final Price: $0.50 Moneymaker

Stayfree Maxi Pads $3.00
Buy 1, Receive $2.00 +Up Reward
Use $1.00/1 Stayfree product from SS 11/06
Pay $2.00, Receive $2.00 +Up Reward
Final Price: Free

Lysol Healthy Touch Hand Soap Kit $9.99
Buy 1, Receive $5.00 +Up Reward
Use $3.00/1 Lysol No-Touch hand soap system starter kit from SS 11/06
And Use $1.50/1 Lysol Healthy Touch from Rite Aid flu book
Pay $5.49, Receive $5.00 +Up Reward
Final Price: $0.49

For these items you would pay $10.49 out of pocket and receive $10.50 to use on your next transaction. .Your next transaction could be immediately after your first. Check here for other Rite Aid deals.
So "in a way" you go all of the items above for free.

Catalinas

You know those coupons that mysteriously print out at the register after you have completed a transaction? These are called catalinas. These are perhaps the most confusing types of coupons to use. I am still not an expert at using them. I think I have only effectively used them once. (here) Some catalinas are for a specific product (ex: save $2 on 5 boxes of General Mills cereal) and some are good to spend as store cash (ex: save $7.00 on your next Albertson's purchase).

Because I am not an expert at these, I will refer you to someone who is!

Fabulously Frugal: Catalinas

Diaper Deals 11/3

Smith's and Fred Meyer are running a good deal on diapers... For those of you with kids, head over to Fabulously Frugal to find out exactly how to get this deal. If you don't have a Saving Star account (I know I don't), it may not be quite as good of a deal but here you are. She takes you step by step and shows you two transactions to get the deal. You will be left with $8 in catalinas.  You can also create your own scenario using her information.

Smart Clearance Shopping

My absolute favorite time to go shopping is right after a holiday. (I love home decor!) But browsing the clearance section is always a good place to start when saving money. Here is my "Stephanie-ology" on clearance shopping:

*Know where to look for clearance. Most stores have their clearance items in the back of the store. Other stores, such as Wal-Mart, have their clearance items spread out. Holiday discounts are usually located in the front as a major display or in the back of the store along an "obscure" wall. Or my favorite, Kohl's, has clearance spread through out the store towards the outside perimeter of the store. (Sadly, I have a clearance route I take anytime I go to Kohl's

*The longer you wait after a holiday or a price reduction, the deeper the discount. However, it will also be more picked over. For example, I want to start collecting earrings for the different holidays but I am unwilling to pay full price. The earrings I bought today were 50% today at Target. A few days from now they may be 75% off, but they may be gone as well. This was the last of this particular set so I picked them up.

*Look for holiday (or everyday) items that can be used with a coupon. My favorite are the Christmas patterned Ziplocks after Christmas. I also used my Kohl's coupons to buy 4 Halloween/Thanksgiving wall hangings for $4.64. (Kohl's already is putting their fall/Thanksgiving home decor on clearance!) Target and Shopko are good places to brows the clearance section to use coupons on top of reduced prices.

*Look for holiday items that can be used anytime of the year. Today I picked up Kleenex's and baking liners for less than a dollar a piece. I won't care that my muffins have a skull on them in the middle of February. :) (I also picked up some pet toys. My cat's won't care they are playing with a bat and freaky looking skull!)

Total: $11.24 compared to $22.58+

***Be careful when buying food items on clearance. Make sure to check expiration dates. When I don't buy Zaycon meat, I often look for the meat that is reduced due to a near expiration date and then freeze it.

Peanut Butter Deal on Amazon! HURRY!

Good morning! I have not even been awake for a half hour yet and I have already scored a good deal on peanut butter! Heard all the rumors about rising peanut prices?

For All You Harry Potter Fans

Amazon.com has Harry Potter 7.2 (as we call it) for pre-order at the low price of $14.99! This is down from $16.99. And if the price drops before it is released, Amazon has a pre-order guarantee! It even includes a Digital Copy.

But wait! There's more! Pre-order it and receive $4 to spend in the Amazon Instant Video Store. (Castle Season 4 anyone?) It's "like paying" $10.99!!

Save on Meat

I don't know if you have noticed, but meat prices have sky rocketed! Regular 80/20 hamburger up here is at least $3.28/lb in the stores. However, I just bought 97/3 hamburger for $2.98/lb. While you may think this is still expensive for hamburger, consider the difference in quality. I can brown a pound of Zaycon hamburger and not have to soak up any grease! And, did I mention it is the tastiest beef I have ever had? I also bought boneless, skinless chicken just a little while ago for $1.49/lb!

Zaycon sells their meat in bulk... which means you may need a meat buddy. I am pretty sure the chicken and hamburger come in 40lb cases and the bacon comes in a 30 lb case. (Their bacon is not the best, rock bottom price out there but it is SOOO GOOD! I am down to 6 pieces and can't wait until the next bacon event!) For those in college, newly weds, or thsoe with smaller families, ask around to see if anyone wants to go in on the deal with you. I have always been able to find someone to split it with.

Large case also means you need to dedicate some time to store it. Here is what I did last night. It is 20lbs of yummy beef browned and ready to go when I need it! (Well, 18lbs is shown. The other two are for meatloaf tonight!)

Coupon Reset

Did you know the first business day of the month is when most websites reset their coupons? Websites such as coupons.compillsbury.combettycrocker.com, and kelloggs.com usually have higher value coupons that are only available for a short period of time. Today is the day to put your printer to work!



Remember you can print each coupon twice. Can't find it after printing it once? Try looking on the last page of coupons. Often times the high demand coupons will reset to the back page. This page also tells you when you've reached your print limit of a specified coupon!
