Jennifer emailed in the following tip:
I had been wondering how much I actually saved using coupons — and if it was really worth all my time and energy, since sometimes I only saved a couple dollars at one particular store.
So recently, we started to actually track how much we saved in coupons at every store, and then we put that same amount into our savings account.
Now, each month (and each year) we can SEE exactly how much we saved with coupons… and see that my efforts really are worth it. This is a really simple concept and it makes saving a little more fun!
