Alright, May is over, and now it’s time to report on the results of the May Coupon Challenge that Michael and I began last month.
We did a little less shopping in the later half of the month. Like I mentioned, we were fully stocked mid-way through. However, we still manged to add a little bit more to our growing “stockpile” and replenish the food we’d eaten along the way. We’re still at capacity in our upstairs freezer and in our cabinets. Depending on what we buy this month, we’ll likely have to expand to the basement in the very near future.
So, how did we do?
We spent a total of $243.91 for $641.44 worth of groceries and toiletry items — that’s 62% savings through the month! In addition, we still have $1 in Register Rewards from Walgreens for our next purchase. If this month taught us anything, it’s that couponing is definitely worth it!
Although our official challenge is over, we’re definitely not stopping couponing any time soon. And while 62% is great savings, I have intentions to get better and better month over month.
