I am trying to update my grocery challenge. But I just realized something.
In week 2, I bought a pack of pullups for 9.54-2 coupon. so I paid 7.54, then when I got home I realized that I paid more than I should have, so when I was there this week I returned the pack of pullups, they ended up giving me the full 9.54 plus tax and didnt factor in the coupon
So I took the 10.xx they gave me and used that for my week 3 target trip. But I've counted that money twice. How should I put it in, so that it is correct
I keep a spreadsheet that has a column for original price (i.e. non-sales price and before coupons), then an OOP column that shows what I actually paid, and finally a saving column that shows how much I saved for sales and coupons. (Oh and I have a rebates column that I keep too.) When I return something I subtract the non-sales price from my first column and whatever I get back from my second column. Now if I've used a coupon and they give me back the full amount then I still show I "saved" however much the coupon was because I essentially cashed it in (without meaning too).
Of course I'm an accountant and a nerd so I'm probably way too detailed.
