Buyer Beware!

Homeschooling and Frugal has a great article posted here about how product prices aren't necessarily changing, but the amount of product you are paying for is. I always shop by the price per unit--this is one way to catch them in the act! In fact, by doing so, I realized this weekend that the Walmart brand of lemon juice concentrate is now more expensive than buying the name brand in bluk at my local Sam's Club. A few months ago it was just the opposite (by a large margin).

Thanks for the time!

I'll keep a look out for stuff like this.

Thanks for the reminder to watch out for this. It's amazing how often it is cheaper to buy 2 of a smaller quantity than one of the double quantity here in Mozambique.
