      <pre>Joanie,

      Check out www.OrganizedHome.com. They tell you how to set up a price book
      and even have (FREE) printable forms you can use for the price book and a
      whole ton of others. They also give some tips on OAMC, and a host of other
      things. I have found it to be a very valuable website.

      I thought I would ask, is it ok and welcome to post other websites here that
      we have found helpful in either organization or being frugal, or do we need
      to wait until that topic presents itself (as in this case)? If anyone
      wants, I have quite a few links to various topics such as: organizational
      (planner pages as well), homeschool, breastfeeding, childbirth and doulas,
      crochet, cloth diapering (including sewing your own) and some others. I'll
      be happy to share what I have found if anyone is interested.

      Naomi

      > I have a question... Do any of you keep a book or journal of prices in the
      grocery store. I am really bad with prices. I couldn't tell ya what a gallon
      of milk or a box of cereal costs..... I know most of you would know that
      right off the top of your heads. I do look at flyers for deals (I just
      assume they are deals cause I wouldn't have a clue) but I was wondering if
      you keep track of certain things like how much you should pay for chicken,
      steak, when it is a great deal to buy alot or just a so so deal to buy
      mayber a little extra not go nuts.... I was thinking of starting one so I
      can price compare in different stores also. Do any of you have such a thing
      maybe you could share how you set it up and keep it current. Thanks

      Default Price Book

      I'm putting together a price book and trying to learn how to use it and was wondering if some one could answer a couple of questions or tell me how to use this thing.
      Do I write down the regular prices or just sale prices?
      Do I write down all the prices from all the stores around me, or just the cheapest price I come across.
      In a grocery sales flyer, is it true that the first page are the sale items and the rest of the pages are there regular prices?

      Laurie, generally when you're putting together a p.b you start with the a column of the regular prices for the item. for ex:

      walmart sugar .99 5lb bag
      Shop-Save Sugar .89 5lb bag

      Then you know which stores sell it and for how much. That way, when you find a coupon or see an ad in a sale flyer, you know whether it's a deal or not.

      We've added a feature to the site, http://www.budget101.com/GroceryGuide.htm which helps keep you from having to keep a price book. First, you enter your zip code and choose the stores that you use, then you'll see a star rating system. The higher the rating, the better the deal. (Which doesn't tell you how much it normally is, but does tell whether the sale is a good deal or not). Next in the right hand column you can also choose coupons to print for many of the items to go in conjunction with the sales in your area.

      On top of that, when you're done choosing your list, you can print it out, complete with the coupons you chose. Also, you can find other coupons on other new page:

      http://www.budget101.com/coupons.htm

      Hopefully, with the addition of these 2 resources our members will be able to save even more money.

      They take about 15 seconds to load on dial-up (sorry) but they're worth the wait.

      HTH,

      ~Liss

      >>I'm putting together a price book and trying to learn how to use it and was wondering if some one could answer a couple of questions or tell me how to use this thing.<<

      My price book lists the date, regular price, the sale price (actual amounts 1.89/15oz) and the final column breaks it down to the per oz/gram/lb price (.13/oz).

      Originally I wrote down prices for everyone, even if it was higher just so I would know that I had checked the price. What I found is that one store might have the lowest regular price, but another store would regularly have the best sale price. If you list the dates you recorded the prices, you can see the sale patterns for that item (I now know that our store sells b/s chicken breasts at rock bottom prices of $1.69/lb every 6 weeks).

      I can't answer your question about the sales flyer. Sorry.

      RE: Budget101.com : Price Book


      I usually write down the regular and the sale price plus the date so I can keep track of when certain stores usually run those items on sale. The reason I write the sale price is so that if another place puts it on cheaper than I know how to tell it is a better deal and when. I usually try to adMatch when I can because there is only one other grocery store close to me and they double coupons up to .50, but their ads are horrible (they always seem to be out of everything they advertise and this is a very small town so I know that there aren?t that many people shopping there). So I use their ads and admatch at walmart, then I try to use my coupons on top of that whenever possible.



      HTH,

      Stacey

      Re: Budget101.com : Price Book


      I have a small notebook that I use and when I go through the store's sale circular I write down the date, store, item, size/quantity and the sale price. I don't write down the regular price because I'm always trying to look for a comparable sale price. This also allows you to track sale trends, some stores cycle through sale items about once every 3 months or so more often if it is a seasonal item such as strawberries etc. I have 4 different grocery stores with in about a 1 mile radius of my house and a Wal-Mart about 3 miles away (I don't shop there due to I do not want to support what I see as unethical practices no matter what the savings maybe). I shop the circulars (most of the sales are so much better than Wal-Mart prices anyway) so I look all through my local store's ads because ours have sale items through out the whole circular.
