"Buy" Price List

One of the keys to a successful shopping trip is knowing when you are getting a good deal. In order to do that, you need to know what the regular price of a product is. You're a step ahead if you can also keep track of the usual sale price for that item! (Don't worry...after couponing for a few weeks, you'll know!)

Below is a list of items we usually purchase and my "buy" prices for them. Now some of them might be the best sale price I know of (ie. 93% ground beef @ 1.99lb), or it might be the lowest price I can get after using a coupon. If I use a coupon, and it works out to be lower than my expected "buy" price, that's an added bonus! Regardless, if I can get it at that price--and I need it--it's in my cart. Your prices may vary slightly, depending on your needs, your location, and where you shop.
