savings recap for january!

I cant' believe January is gone already!
Time sure does fly!
I love love when I have time to sit down and see how much i've saved!!!
It was a great month of saving some moola! I bought enough toys to take care of my kids birthdays and Christmas for '09! I bought clothes for winter '09 for the kids-at 50% off of the clearance prize..and of course built up my stockpile of toothpaste, and shampoo:)

here's the breakdown:
cvs- $94.05 worth of products, i paid $22.03 for savings $72.47, 77% discount!
walgreens- $112.13 worth of products, I paid $17.81 for savings of $94.32, 84% discount!
target- $911.63 worth of products, I paid $279.17 for savings of $632.46, 69% discount!
old navy- $146 worth of clothes, I paid $73 for savings of $73, 50% discount
strausburg- $78 worth of clothes, I paid $7.46 savings of $70.54, 90% discount
dillards- $154.99 worth of clothes, I paid $48.24 savings of $106.04 or 69% discount

so final totals:
$1496.80 worth of products
$447.71 is what i paid out of pocket..(i usually dont' spend this much a month, i just pulled money from our savings account to help with the cost)
so I saved $1049.09, 70% discount!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God is so good to help me find these deals!
