I keep a spread sheet of all of the money we spend on a monthly basis. This includes groceries. I do keep the foods and the personal care/sundry items separate. I need to set it up so that I can see my savings with each trip however. I will include a sheet just for that. Thanks for that idea! Keep us posted on how yours goes.

I'd be interested in knowing as I too am always searching for coupons to use; thank you and good luck to you !!

I am thinking I will start tracking better too. I kind of keep track since I have a budget but I have no idea really. I go buy what I need unless the money is out. I spend $240 a month of food and grocery items. I think most months I spend a little less then the extra I spend at case lot sales durring the year. I wonder if I spend more or less then I think I do. This is a great idea. I will track my budget closer and we can all find out together.

i spend more than that i guess because i have 4 children and one is only 1 so i still have to get diapers for her but our costs seem to be going down which is always good also to keep track there is a website you can go to and print up a traking paper for you to keep track of it every month if you want the sites name just let me know.

I have been keeping track of how much I spend at the grocery store every time I go now for several months. I know for a fact ever since I have been watching the sales and stocking up on them it has gone down. I am going to also start keeping track of how much money I save using coupons.
