Quick Tip: Price Comparison in Store

Being thrifty sometimes means simply paying attention to labels in store,  particularly in the produce section.

Today I had garlic on my list, but I only needed a small head as I still have some at home. I started to grab a small one, as they are usually priced per pound.
That is, until I noticed the signage :

2/$1 means no matter what size, it’s going to be the same price. I put back the small one and grabbed a bigger one.

Similarly, there was a pre-packaged 4-pack of kiwis for $2.50. The a la carte kiwis were 4/$2. I don’t always have time to do this, but out of curiosity I put 4 in a bag and weighed them. They came in JUST under 1lb. There’s a $.50 savings right there. It may not seem like a big deal, but when you pay attention to each item on your list this way, you can see big savings in the long run!
