Don't save whole pages, just the unique portion of the pages: those totals. 
Then when the person returns, generate the page as usual, plugging in any 
stored values you have for him/her. You'll need a way to uniquely identify 
the user, so that id can be linked back to the right set of stored data.  
Sessions are perfect for this <>.  Or, if you had no 
concern about the implications of client-side storage, you could use JS to 
store the values directly in a cookie.
