Back to Basics: Buy Prices for Household Staples
Today, I am going to cover household staples. Household staples can mean alot of things, so I am going to cover a wide variety of items. Also, I will list my stock up prices vs. my buy prices for these.
The buy price is the absolute max I will pay for the product. (unless there is an absolute dire emergency, but when you have a stockpile like mine, that doesn’t happen often) The stock up price is my normal buy price – meaning this is what I would pay and I would buy more than 1. Of course, there are always opportunity to do better than these prices. Many of these items I can get for free as well.
Your prices may vary and this is just a guideline.
