My husband and I live on a pretty tight fixed income, and so we have a difficult time saving. Whenever we go out to eat (once or twice a week) we take the money we normally would spend on the drink (coke/diet coke) and instead order water. We then put that money approx. $2.50 each ($5.00) in a jar at home. Each month we put that money into a savings account for something special. One time it might be home renovations, the next time it might be a trip, or we may designate it for Christmas shopping. Not only is it a quick and easy way to put a little money back, but it also helps me get in my required water!

I started putting $20.00 a payday into a savings account. I got up to 40, spent 20, and put 20 back in with a vow not to dip into it again.

Other than that, on my budget my goal is to buy as much as possible for my money. I have six kids at home right now and have switched this summer to putting cash in envelopes for my food and household shopping to help me stay in budget. It's pitifully low, only $100 a week. The envelope system is really working, though!

1683.02 + 40.00 = 1723.02

The best thing I can do for myself is achieve a proper weight and live a healthy lifestyle.

Current goals:
1. Measure food and track calories.
2. Exercise at least 20 minutes every day.
3. Think about my goals every day.
4. Check in on SP at least 3 days a week.

Hi:
I am new to this particular board. I do like savings and I think most people do. The other day I went shopping and saved money at Macy's and was happy about that. My total savings was $16.35. I also went to Payless Shoes and saved there, too. Buy one get one half off. I was pleased. That savings was $16.00. I guess one can say we did not save. We just did not have to spend it LOL.
It is great to know we can get sales. Many stores have the price check scanner. People do it all the time at Macy's and I do,too. It pays to ask someone or get the person at the register to scan your item. If the teachers are supposed to get a discount, then ask about it if you go to those kind of places.
Happy shopping. emoticon

Take it one day at a time
You can get motivated
Keep the good attitude
Your Spark friend,
Cyrella

Wow 123Fit4me, that's amazing! I wonder if my mother in law can get the same deal since she runs a daycare? That would be great for me since I now have 2 kids starting school this year (got a kindergartener and 5th grader now - they grow up so fast!)

Went to Big Lots yesterday and got some new things to spruce up the house. They're having 50% off some home decor items and 40% off their Jennifer Something (can't remember her last name) collection of home decor.
HUGE Living room rug, normally $300, got it for $180
HUGE cherry wood mirror, normally $130, got it for $65
Saved $185 and my living room looks so much more put together!

Yes, definitely great job! I went shopping when I was at my parents at a discount grocery store that gets bumps, bruised, overrun, etc items and spent a total of $45 and it was probably valued around double that. So...

1304.24 + 45= $1349.24

Yesterday, we saved $7.99 at Dennys for buy one get one free b-day lunch, then $10.78 with a free dinner for my husbands' b-day at a local BBQ. We go on our b-days and split the free meals. emoticon I took the day off Sparks but tried my best to still eat very reasonably.

We saved $200 by moving our stuff to a different storage unit; paid a neighbor teen $35 to help move the stuff. (Removed already from savings)

And being a member of a club saved me on gas. Its around 4.07 here and I paid 3.92 per gallon. 15 cents per gallon times 5.5 gallons (I didn't HAVE to get it, but couldn't pass it up) is: 83 cents

Wow Stephanie! I love it when stuff like that happens.

Great deals Summer. I also have some grocery savings to report. I was nervous b/c I went with no list, no plan, and no coupons. But there were a ton of meat markdowns b/c they were close to the sell-by dates, so I scored! $42.98

Hi there,
I've lost track of the team total here, so after I add this, can someone add the total cause there are a few things inbetween from other members.

Went to the grocery store on 6/08 and with $1.00 coupon and my discount card, I saved $16.21.

Team Total: ??

Who have you encouraged today?

Produce in general is always the hardest to find deals on.

Went wedding ring shopping with my friend today for her fiance’s wedding band. I technically found the ring, so I’m claiming the savings for us. Wait until you see this… $432!!! It was 60% off, then an additional 30%.
So….

I am JEALOUS!! I buy mainly produce and most of its organic, so its NEVER on sale. I'm happy I saved 9 something last time... I only spent 25 after that savings and a lot of it was 3 free items that I got!

Sun 6/8... went to the grand opening of Wegman's! Got a nifty coupon book with my card and also an extra one. So with the 3 free coupons (coke, butter, and basting oil) and club savings, I saved 9.37.

Team total: $46.26

Went to the Flea Market for my produce and the bent and dent groceries. Most everything is about half the price of the grocery stores, so I'm estimating I saved $36 because that's how much I spent.

Team Total
$36.89

We're all going to be busy this Summer, so I didn't want to inundate everyone with lots of things to track. Besides, Summer is all about having fun, cook-outs, and running around.

This thread is for anyone who is looking to save money this Summer. Whenever you buy something and get a great deal, post it. Then at the bottom, add your savings to the person before you to see how much money we can save this Summer as a team!

For example:
----------------
Sun, 6/7
Groceries, sales + coupons = $23.68

Team Total
$143.46 + $23.68 =
$167.14
----------------

We'll start tracking now and finish on Sept 1st.
Good Luck Everyone!
