How to KeepTrack of Your

ABC’s of Couponing “K” is for “Keeping Track of Savings”

Have you ever had problems keeping track of how much you save and spend with coupons?  I just got this spreadsheet from a reader and I thought I’d pass it on to you; here’s what she had to say:

Hi Deidre, I am new to couponing and was a little confused on how everyone kept deals, Wag coupons, RR’s, Manf coupons, rebates, savings, etc straight so I came up with a spreadsheet that breaks everything down in a simple and easy to understand excel spreadsheet, it even has a total of amount saved at the bottom. The 1st tab shows a list of deals I found, the 2nd shows how I entered in everything, and the last is a blank form to use. On mine I just keep adding more tabs at the bottom for each week I shop, that way I can go back and look thru if I have a ? or problem. I would love to send it to you so you might be able to post for other newbie’s. I might not be good at couponing (still learning) but I am good with spreadsheets. All I know is it really helped me understand how everyone came up with them.

Thanks Beth for this spreadsheet! Download the Sample Coupon Calculator here for free. It works in excel.

Also, Jessica emailed me yet another grocery-savings-tracker Saving Tracker for free, also works in excel.
Here’s the info Jessica passed onto me on how she uses her grocery savings tracker:

  1. Add the amount spent for all receipts
  2. Add the total amount saved (usually at the bottom of all receipts)
  3. Add Total Spent and Total Saved together to get the total Value
  4. Divide Total Saved by the Total Value, X (multiply) that by 100 = percentage saved each week!

Please leave a comment letting me know how you keep track of your savings.  If you are new to couponing, please read my coupon training guide!
