    Using A Price Book

    A price book can help you to find the shelf prices of items in your local stores you can match when you see sales or are out shopping and want the best price. This can keep you on track for budgeting your food expenses.

    Do you use a price book?

    Re: Using A Price Book

    I havent had one if a while.  Prices have changed so much so quick.  Is good for salvage store shopping so you know how much you are saving. Salvage stores here tend to cut the price in half.  There is an app that willk check prices in local stores so you can find out the lowest price. Bean and I have used it at the salvage store to see how much we have saved. Babs

     Prices are rising up so quickly, I CAN'T KEEP UP.

    I haven't used a price book but I know my target prices. Those have had to change and I too am struggling to keep up with the rapidly changing costs.

    I ask Bean to post about the app that is on her phone for price checks. Hopefully she will do that today, Babs

    Re: Using A Price Book

    YES I love this thing.. Mom ( Babs) and I have used this a ton out shopping..My Husband has even used it for Man Stuff... Like at Home depo for hardwear.

     It is called ShopSavvy I believe it was a free app but i got it SO long ago i dont really recall. It is easy to use..

    Easy to use.. My Kids love doing it for me.. Keeps them busy in the store. All you do is scan the Barcode on something and it pulls up prices for stores and online stores also like Amazon or Walmart online. Not everything is in there but you can also add things by taken a picture and adding the Info in about where you saw it and how much it was. VERY helpful seeing as Prices are changing all the time. ALSO give you a good idea about how much you have saved shopping at discount stores. If you have a smart phone this is a MUST have for bargin Shopping in my book.. BEAN

    Thanks for the info Babs and Bean, I will have to download that app for my phone. I haven't had a pricebook in years. I usually shop at the same stores each time so I have figured out which store to buy certain items in for the lowest cost. I think the shopping app will be a good idea to have.
