In addition, a spreadsheet can be helpful as you are trying to plan for bulk purchases. How much do I need to save from my budget each week to save up for that coconut oil? OK, I think I'm getting way too giddy over this. I really hope someone else is seeing the potential, here.
After you click the link, it will take you to GoogleDocs. You can download the file to your favorite spreadsheet program and save from there. To do this, go the top menu of this GoogleDocs file (not on your Web browser) and click "File," then "Download As." It will give you some options, select "Excel" or "OpenOffice," depending on the software that you have. See the screenshot below for an example.
Please note, that I did insert a few comments how I use a field or a formula. Be sure to read over my original post for tips on sorting your columns (always highlight the entire table first).
How do you like to keep up with your shopping budget?
P.S. I did create a pivot table (see the tab "Pivot Table 1") for tracking the purchases at each store. However, it does not appear to carry over the functionality to Open Office, when you download the file. Bummer! Will have to work on that.
