    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?

    This is a great idea. I had thought about a price book but this post helped me see why i have to have one. Mission number 1 cutting down on groceries and maybe I wont have to shave some of the other stuff.

    Not because I have to but because it is another way of saving money.

    Well just a little update.. I didnt just start a price book but I started a coupon book, a price book as well as a household notebook. I am not a very organized individual and I now see just how much money Icould save vs.

    how much I waste on a daily basis on many things that could easily be either made at home a lot cheaper and if I need to buy it I can use coupons. I actually never cut coupons before so this is all new territory to me. I feel like if I can save any amount of money, it is worth the effort I have put in to it.

    I’ve been wanting to do a price book, but really, I’m a little lazy about this sort of thing…and because I have very poor vision, it’s hard to use spreadsheetsw and writing things out big enough for me to see woulod have me lugging around a hige binder every timeIshop But in a moment of inspiration, I discovered there’s a free app on iTunes to do just this. And since I’ll be doing my shopping tomorrow, what a perfect time to give it a try! It’s called “Best Price Book” if anyone is interested.

    I don’t have a price book. I’m not really sure how a price book works, I definitely need to look into it. But…

    I have the app on my phone called “out of milk”, its free and you can create a grocery list and include things like quantity and price. I use it to keep from going over budget. It’s a battery sucker though, I usually have to plug my phone in when I get back to the car.

    It’s worth it though.

    I dont have a price book but I do keep a mental note of what I want to pay per item e.g. if I find toilet rolls for 25p or less per roll I will bulk buy them. Kitchen roll 50p per roll.

    I’m downloading the out of milk app on my phone right now. I can’t wait to try it next week when I do my groceries.

    You’re not going to find it, it no longer exists, the company that used to provide the data discontinued the service and it was Removed.
