If you have ever wondered if a sale at the grocery store is really a “sale” or just a ploy to get you in the store, this product is for you!!
This spreadsheet lists all the types of products in the grocery store from air fresheners down to Ziploc bags. The for each of those items there is an OK sale price, a BUY price (that is around the 50% mark) and then a Holy Smokes – you’d better not miss this – Stock Up price! This way you can outsmart the grocery stores! You can look at your out of pocket price and see if it’s the right TIME to use your coupons and stock up.
This ALSO gives you the power to shop any store you want! Sometimes we see “fancy” grocery stores that say there is a sale, but it is not really a good deal. THIS will help you make that decision for yourself!
Remember, you want to make sure you are buying enough of a product at the “Stock Up” price to last about 3 months. That is about how long it will take for that type of product to be that price again.
Let me know if I missed anything. I’m happy to add and update this file as needed!
