Do you want to track your savings this year to see how much couponing helps you to cut expenses?! Well, here is the free annual WNY Deals and To-Dos Savings Tracker!

How to get started

Here’s how to get started using this free Savings Tracker for this year.

You can view the workbook by clicking here. This version will be a read-only copy. Therefore you will not be able to make any changes to it. So to track your expenses, you will need to download the file to your computer.

Next, click the “File” button in the upper left-hand corner, and a drop-down menu will appear.

Then choose “Download,” where you will see different format options that you can save the file as. I would suggest keeping it as a Microsoft Excel file, even if you don’t have this program. You can always then upload the .xlsx file to Google drive, and it will convert it there for you.

Now find the file on your computer (usually in the Downloads folder) and open it with Excel. If you do not have Excel, you can go to Google Drive and upload the file here. When it is finished, open the spreadsheet using Google Sheets.  Going forward, you will then record your purchases online instead of using the file on your computer.

The first tab is “Total Year,” which is a summary sheet of all the monthly tabs. Everything will be calculated automatically with formulas on this sheet, and I have shaded these cells in GRAY. Do not change anything in these gray formula cells, as it might affect calculations down the road.

Go to the next tab, “January.” This sheet is where you will start recording your January purchases.  It has some example entries, which you should delete from your downloaded copy to record your information.  Again formulas will be shaded in gray and will automatically be updated as you input data.

At the bottom of your file, you will see all of the other months listed as well, through December.

That’s it! Enjoy tracking your purchases and seeing how much money you save each month with this free savings tracker for the year!! If you have any questions regarding this file, please contact me at wnydealsandtodos{at}gmail{dot}com.

Note: This file was created by me for your personal use only.
