You’ve been asking for it…and now it’s here! Please head to the Savings Tracker page to grab your preferred FREE version of the 2012 Savings Tracker!
What is the Savings Tracker?
Before I was a blogger, I worked as an administrative assistant, supporting executive staff at a community bank. I was frequently required to create and maintain rather complicated spreadsheets. As a result, I got pretty good at – and discovered a love for – Excel.
In my role as a coupon blogger, I wanted to create a tool that folks could easily use to track their spending and savings. It seems that couponing is often about the day-to-day transactions and it’s important to step back and see the big picture. The Savings Tracker allows you to do just that:
- Set your monthly grocery budget and stick to it
- Determine how much coupons are really saving you
- Determine how much store sales are really saving you
- Get your monthly and yearly spending results at-a-glance
Whether you’re new to couponing or an old pro, this would be a good chance to get ready for the new year! The 2012 version has been virtually unchanged from 2011. I had made a number of changes from 2010 to 2011, and found that the 2011 version has worked pretty well for most of you. I made some minor tweeks and updates for 2012. If you’ve been using the tracker for 2011, you’ll find the 2012 version won’t require any re-learning.
Disclaimers & Caveats
As always, this spreadsheet is for personal use only. If you are a blogger or someone who wishes to share this, please do – I would love that! All I ask is that you link to this post. Please don’t make the download available on your site. If you have any question about this, please contact me at angela @ thecouponproject dot com.
Finally, please understand that I simply do not have the resources to make one-off alterations. I sometimes get emails from folks wishing me to build a particular formula or make a tweek to suit their situation, and unfortunately, I’m not able to offer such support. That being said, please know that you are 100% welcome to make any and all alterations you wish on your own personal saved copy! Everyone’s brain works a bit different, so I’ve intentionally left the pages unprotected.
If you need more help, please DO check out the resources I’ve put together on the Savings Tracker page including a manual and a recorded webcast. I’ve worked hard to ensure your success with this!
A final THANK YOU to everyone who has used this and/or shared it with a friend and helped put my site “on the map” so to speak. Warmly appreciated.
Happy saving in 2012!
