Unit Pricing, Unit Pricing, Unit Pricing . . .

I went grocery shopping tonight on my way home from work and once again was reminded of the value of using the unit pricing boxes on the shelf price tags.  I have talked about this before, but . . .

One item, I think it was a can of whipped cream for hot chocolates (doesn't really matter about the what-- it's the how much . . . ), presented me with a choice the sale item a smaller can or the larger item at regular price . . . thing is when I compared unit prices, the regular priced item was the "real" sale priced item!

Moral of the story-- you have got to use unit pricing to get the most bang for your buck!  Can't say it enough-- these supermarkets are very sneaky . . .

Here is my recap post on frugality in the supermarket, My Typical Grocery List and Strategy .
