How much? Here's my latest receipt showing year-to-date totals:
|Yep. You read it right. $1396.60 savings.|
Maybe it's not so easy to read, but I spent $1.48 and saved $24.87. I got 2 shampoos, a toothpaste, and a bodywash (and some filler candy bars, because I miscalculated and needed to buy more). Oh, and I got $7 in ECB for the next time. That's how massive year-end savings are possible. Next week, with my $7 ECB coupon I'll buy something else that generates ECBs and I'll "roll" them from week to week, meaning that I get a fair amount and pay very little along the way.
The best part? I've only been doing this since the middle of March. So I expect to beat this total next year. Along the way, I need to recruit some people to do the same thing. I'll make the scenarios, if you commit to shopping. Build yourself a reasonable (3 month supply) stockpile, and then give the rest away. It's fun, and there's a desperate need for these items in food pantries (since food stamps usually cannot be used to buy them).
Ninja new year!
