Karrie over at Happy Money Saver (and her insanely talented accountant husband) have created a new savings tracker for 2011!
Basically, all you have to do is enter in your receipt information after all your shopping trips and the spreadsheet calculates everything for you. Download the free savings tracker to your computer and get started!
I use something very similar (and used it all last year) and it is SO helpful. I know it might sound like just one more thing to remember, but it truly just takes a few seconds to enter in your receipt information. It is so amazing to see your savings and total amount spent in one easy to use spreadsheet. For more information on the savings tracker I use, read my post here.
Head on over here and check out Karrie’s savings tracker download. I definitely recommend using something to track your spending if one of your goals for 2011 is to bring down your grocery budget. There is always room for improvement in our budget and keeping our spending/savings organized really helps me figure out where we are at.
