So my goal for March was to "get back in the game" and take advantage of more rebates and freebie deals. I still have a huge stockpile to donate, although my hunny has gone through and catalogues it all for me. (Can you believe what a sweetie he is?!)
The only bad part is that our numbers are skewed for March because we did the freezer deal at Hy-Vee AND we bought the world's largest mountain of dog food because it was 65% off at Hy-Vee ($5.88 for a 20 lb bag). You can see one of our trips in the pic above. Somebody passed me as I was loading it into my Jeep and he said "wow! just how many dogs do you have?!" I just chuckled...
Total Retail of Groceries\Merchandise: $1,224.08
Total Out-of-Pocket: $301.65
Rebates received: $70.00
Total Saved: 75.4%
I'm not super-happy that our OOP was so high, but 75% off is nothing to sneeze at. My goal for April is to get those donations cleared out of the house, get my taxes done and start paying off our mortgage. I want to be completely debt free so that we don't have to worry about anything!
How'd you do in March?
