Providing the spreadsheet would be helpful.  The sumifs function might give you what you need.

A pivot table is also a great tool for doing what you are asking.  Assuming the data looks like what I have provided as an example.  See spreadsheet.

Or if your date is mm/dd/yr, then you can use the grouping function in the pivot table like the attached example.  An advantage of the pivot table is if your source data is defined as a table (Ctrl/T keystroke) then it will expand or detract as the number of rows change if, for instance, the data was changed every month.
