My Savings Ticker

I thought it would be a great idea to start a ticker for my savings for 2013! This way I can keep track of my savings throughout the year. This ticker will be present in all my coupon recaps at the end of the week- on the bottom of each post.

I have set a goal of $2,500 in savings for the year which I thought sounded like a bit of stretch- but I already have saved over $200 and it's only January 23rd! I am super excited to keep track of these savings and hope I inspire you to keep track of your savings this year as well!

I thought a lot about what I wanted to include in this ticker. I didn't know if I wanted to include just coupon savings or include sale prices as well. I have decided to calculate my TOTAL savings- sale prices, clearance and coupons because all of these things together contribute to my overall savings. Even though anyone can walk in and get the sale price or clearance deal I am often pairing a coupon with these savings which makes my savings more than just a dollar or two.

So check out that ticker to see how much I have saved and let me know how much you've saved too!

So far so good! =)
