Month in Savings – January 2010

by Gina on January 29, 2010

This year, I decided I would track all of the income that is generated from our smart shopping, bank interest, cashback programs, bank offers, etc. I knew it would add up, but now I realize how much it helps us. The picture above is a snapshot of one of the sheets that I started using to track our monthly income from various miscellaneous things. This is the breakdown:

  • Swagbucks Redeemed as Amazon.com giftcards: $15
  • Cashback from Online Shopping Programs (see my right side-bar): $26.14
  • Discover Card cashback redeemed as a CVS giftcard: $50.00
  • Bank Interest: $23.77
  • American Express monthly Cashback: $11.96
  • Bank Offers (opened an ING checking account in Nov ’09): $121
  • Profits from coupons/store rewards: $24.74
  • Other Offers (transferring prescriptions, etc): $80.00
  • Value of Freebies Received: $3.99

Total: $356.60!

I also used a total of $396.08 in coupons during the month!

Savings off of our total spent in groceries, HBA, Clothing, & Household items was 64%!
