Savings Tracking Tool Online Tutorial

Since it is the new year, many people are searching for a tool to track your savings. As I mentioned in my 2010 Shopping + Savings Results, I have used the Savings Tracking Tools for the past three years. That's how I knew I saved over $25,000 through focused couponing efforts.

I created an online tutorial to help you use the document. You can find the tutorial in the post with the Savings Tracking tool. Feel free to leave me a comment over there and I'll try to answer your questions!

Happy Saving {and tracking} in 2011!

    Thanks so much for this, Andrea! I’ve only been using the spreadsheet for a few days, but it’s so awesome to be able to track my savings so easily! It works perfectly in my Excel 2011 for Mac!

    Again, thanks so much for the awesome spreadsheet! :-)

    Hi Andrea-

    I was wondering- how do you account for the cats/rr in the spreadsheet? How do you account for spending $5.00 at cvs and getting $10 back in ECB? Or do you just wait and use it as a coupon in a future transaction?

      Rhonda, those are generally included in the savings totals. So, if you have a $10 RR you didn’t spend, you will eventually spend it. So, you could apply that savings in the next shopping trip.
