Frugal Friday: Price Book
I've known for a long time that I should make a price book to help me with my grocery savings. I've read about how helpful they are on several blogs and also of course in my thrift store copy of The Complete Tightwad Gazette. Price books are a great way to help you keep track of what the prices are so you can buy things only when they are at their cheapest.
I do have the prices of a few items in my head, but I sure can't remember everything. I guess I never made a price book because I couldn't imagine myself standing in the aisles of my local grocery store scribbling in a book. What if the manager asked me to leave? I would be mortified!
Well, I finally had a light bulb moment. Why not just use my receipts? Greg gave me a blank book and I got out my latest receipts, my Tightwad Gazette, and made a price book. It's small enough to slip in my purse and I will no longer stand in front of a sale sign at the grocery store and wonder if it's really a good deal.
