      That is close to what I did. I made a list of the items I purchase

      from each dept. Then I made a column for each store I shop at and

      then I put down what each costs at each store. I added a column for

      best price, unit price and cost of making it at home. I am still

      filling mine out but it makes it easier to make a list. I make a list

      of what I need and then compare the prices to decide what I am buying

      at each store. Go in with a list and put the blinders on.
