Savings Earned

On this page I’ll add the savings I earned each month.

I started working on this project in April 2008 because the costs of food and gas were going up so much. We had two kids in college and one in a private High School.  I was searching for ways to earn and save more.  Since I didn’t have a regular job I felt this was a way to contribute to the household income without “going to work”.

In April I started with researching ways to save by shopping at Walgreens. There was a lot to learn about how the easy saver rebate book worked, and stacking coupons and the hardest of all was using the register rewards to save the most.

UPDATE

August 08 Keeping track of all my savings has become too much work so I’ll just be posting my greatest deals with photos and post on the blog.  At the moment I have been working mostly Walgreens deals so if you’re interested is saving at Walgreens follow my blog.
