Free downloadable 2010 Savings Tracker

I found this great free downloadable savings tracker at The Coupon Project. Just click here to reach the post where you can see the links to the free download.

I started this on January 1st and was able to use it with Open Office since I do not have Excel on my computer at home. With a glance I can see that so far this year I have saved $303 using $136 of coupons. You can enter your monthly grocery budget and it will track that as well.

For the month of January, my budgeted amount for groceries is $625 or $125 a week. With two weeks left in the month, I have $215 left in my grocery budget to finish out the month. My goal is to lower my budget to $75 a week by the Fall. That would be a savings of $200 a month. What would you do with an extra $200 a month? Pay off bills, save for a vacation, or just save for a rainy day!
