Where are we there yet?

So I have another update on the latest savings figures, but I also wanted to start providing a snap-shot into the TOTAL SAVINGS thus far since we are now 1/4 of the way into this year-long challenge.


Items purchased from a Goodwill since January 1st 2011: 308

Total cost of all items purchased @ Goodwill since January 1st 2011: $599.32

TOTAL retail cost paid for these same items:  $3535.39

TOTAL SAVINGS of these items as of April 11th, 2011:  $2936.07!

I plan on adding this TOTAL SAVINGS component in the summer and fall as well since this challenge is about many things, but one of them is how shopping @ the Goodwill can help you save your hard earned dollars over retail.
