Wylie Mom's First Weekly Recap

Here's my first weekly recap of how I did saving and or making money for the week. Week one was really short, so this will be for Jan 1 through Jan 10.

Grocery & Drug Savings - $124.05 (CVS, Walgreens and Albertsons)

Misc. Savings, detailed below - $5.70

-Wacky Pack coupon for son's 1/2 Birthday (balance was paid to GC from Christmas), sign up for the Sonic Birthday Club here, saved $1.00
-Free Redbox rental with Monday's free rental code, saved $1.00
-Starbucks "tell us how we did" receipt coupon (balance paid to GC earned from Pamper's Gifts to Grow points), saved $3.70

Gross eBay sales - $157.10

Weekly Impact: $286.85
Yearly Impact: $286.85

Just to give you an idea of how I look at that number, $286.85 "grossed up" for working outside the home would be $382.46, divided by 40 hours a week and I made $9.56 an hour. See more about my "grossing up" in this post. Not bad....but I have lots of room to improve! And of course you know I "work" more than 40 hours a week, haha! But, that will be my yard stick for comparing my numbers. Also remember, this was all done from the comfort of my own home or with my kids tagging job, huh???

I also (finally) listed 21 more items on eBay.....I need to get those numbers up, up, up!!!! So, lots of room to improve there. :)

How did you do last week?
