February Finals...

I have posted all of my receipts now into my uber-geeky spreadsheet system.  (We at the Little Pink House embrace the nerd within.)  I can say that this month was exceptional in several ways:
 
A.)  It is a short month
B.)  There were lots of simultaneous sales happening
C.)  There were lots of coupons for those sales
D.)  On top of my normal grocery budget, I still had some Christmas cash I could spend
E.)  I never spend this much.  So with all of that in mind, here is how we did:

Shelf Cost = $3,274.46
Coupons/Discounts Used = $2,748.55
Total OOP = $525.91
That's an 84% savings overall for my groceries, OTC meds, cleaning supplies, clothes, gifts, toiletries, and stationery.
On top of that, I still came out with $12 ECBs and am owed $38.98 in rebates!  Yea February!
