Extreme Couponing Tip: Calculating and Tracking Savings



To calculate your savings from a trip:

        • Subtract your total out-of-pocket cost from the before savings cost (original price). This equals the $ amount saved.
  • Divide the amount saved by the original price. Move the decimal over two spaces = your savings percentage!



Calculating and recording your savings is an important part of keeping a budget and tracking your progress as a KCL. Tools like Savings Tracker on The Coupon Project website are a great way to keep all the information in one place, and it automatically does the math for you! Simply enter the information from your receipts under the appropriate month.

Never miss a coupon, deal or freebie again!
