Savings Tracker

Jenny at SouthernSavers posted this spreadsheet as one she uses to track her weekly and annual savings. For those of you comfortable with computers, there isn't much to it other than adding more lines as you need them and continuing the formulas.

I've never really been interested in tracking percent saved over time, so I don't think this is for me. For those of you looking to track percentage and total dollars saved, this looks to be the easiest set up for you and the formulas are already done.

Good luck and let me know if you decide to use this so you can share your progress!

Walgreens - Today ONLY!

I just had a pretty good trip at Wags. Today is their receive a $5RR wyb $25 (before coupons)! Here's what I got:

3- 12 pk Diet Coke $10
1- Complete contact solution $7.99
1- Gillette Fusion razor $8.99

- $4 Fusion from 11/29 PG

$2 RR for Coke
$8 RR for Complete
$4 RR for Fusion
$5 RR bonus (mine expires on 12/20!)

Total: Paid $22.98 (in RR's, of course)
Receive: $19 in RR's

Not bad paying $4 for everything I got. You could also do the Huggies deal instead of the Coke if you have a little one in diapers.

Aliqua - Beautiful Christmas Album

You MUST listen to this live stream of Aliqua's Christmas album. I had never heard of them before until I downloaded one of Amazon's free songs and I must say I LOVE it. The link above will take you to Amazon's stream of their ENTIRE album, not just the snippets of each song.

If you like it, go here to purchase the whole album for download for only $6.99. The cd format is VERY expensive for some reason and Amazon is out of stock, but you can burn the mp3 album to a CD and listen on most any newer stereo.

They have a Facebook page too if you're interested.

TONS of Free Music at Amazon

I have downloaded about 30 songs over the last couple days FREE from Amazon. Check out this page for all the latest FREE songs available.

My only caution is that you may want to preview the song before you download it and read the reviews on songs that are listed as "Christmas" songs. There are definitely some under the Christmas category that are downright vulgar and ARE NOT in the spirit of Christmas.
