Grocery Store Roll Call End of August Summary
For the month of August I had a very low savings rate of just 63.94%. I went to Aldi's once which it is cheaper but since you can't use coupons I don't count anything as savings. Additionally I did not go to any pharmacies nor throughout the whole month which is a first! Working overtime and being busy with summer activities minimized the trips I could take. I also stocked up on a few things buying a lot of them that I usually wouldn't like fruit cups because they were on some extended sales. So for the month of August I took $578.22 worth of groceries (including office supplies like highlighters, sticky pads etc.) for $208.48. How did your savings go this month?
