    Default 2010 Coupon Challenge

    The coupon challenge seemed to go really well this past year. How about a rerun for 2010? I keep a running total of the savings I receive from using my coupons at the grocery store. In 2009, I saved $575.52. A slight increase from the $558.82 I saved in 2008. Each week, I put this money aside in a savings account. It was surprising how much I accumulated. And there are a lot of you that do way better than myself. Saving money at the grocery store is one thing we can have some control over. Anyone want to join for 2010?

    I'm in too, but this is my first 'challenge'....do you 'deduct' the 'cost' of the coupons you use, like the price of the paper you got them out of or when you bought them of eBay or such? Do things like ECBS and Rite Aid rebates go into the #s? Would love to join this, just wanna do it right! Do we post our savings in our signatures at the end of our posts, or post here with our results from time to time? Thanks!

    Alot of people include rebates ( it's money off ), BOGO's ( same as a free coupon ), double or triple coupons ( all money saved ) and some store or manager specials. All of it is regardless money saved. Not everyone does it the same.

    I'm in. Hopefully will be able to keep up with it. Probably post once a week as I usually go to a couple stores different days.

    khaski... everyone does it differently... there is no right or wrong. I just count the cents off I get at the grocery store. I do not deduct for the 'cost' of the coupons, but you can if you would like to. I only do my grocery coupons, but others add in their rebates and coupons they use when out shopping at the mall and other departments stores... Like I said, no right or wrong way, I just like to play the grocery game and see what I can save... Have fun!

    Oh, and I add the savings to my signature, but I also post here when I add it.

    I would like to try this, I need to save as much as I can to pay off debt. I only shop once a month or when we go to town, so I'll post then. I would love to save $1000!

    Well I'm in canada and we don't get much coupons, I might add all kinds of promotions and sales. Otherwise I might have a total of 20.00 at the end of the year.
