Crunching Numbers – October

October numbers are in. How did we do?
If you remember, I started keeping track in March. Previously my grocery bill used to be $225-$275 each week. I used to take advantage of some coupons that I would cut from the one insert I had from that week.

Here are my current numbers since I started keeping track in March:

March:
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $567.83
Avg $128.24 per week

April:
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $380.57
Avg $95.14 per week

May:
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $425.02
Avg $106.25 per week

June:

Avg $80.84 per week

July
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $288.99

So to sum up our budget, for the last 8 months I have saved over $5100. That is over $640 each month. Click here to see how I got started using coupons and saving.

My grocery budget week goes from a Friday to Thursday as that is when we get paid. So this month’s groceries were determined from Friday 9/25 through Thursday 10/22. Next month are from 10/23 – 11/20.
