It amazes me how the size of a package can alter the price of a product so much! Always look at all the sizes and options.
Here’s a good example at Harris Teeter this week.
4 ct Snack packs are $1 or $0.25 per cup.
12 ct Snack Packs are $2.59 or $0.22 per cup.
It’s $0.03 less per cup to buy the 12 ct on sale than it is to buy 3 -4pks.
That could change if one or the other isn’t on sale. At regular price the 4 pk are $0.279 per cup and the 12 ct is $0.274 per cup. Very very small difference.
As a frugal-ista, I know that those pennies add up and with 4 kids so do pudding cups!
My point is- always look at all the size options before making a purchase. Sometimes bigger is better and sometimes lots of little ones are better. Pull out your phone and use the calculator to do a little math before putting things in the cart.
