Guerrilla Shopping Part 6: Smart Shopping

We all want to get our money’s worth when we buy something, especially now. Supermarkets bombard us with advertising telling us they have the lowest prices, and then there are the bulk warehouses who tell us they have the lowest prices.

Who do you believe? Yourself!

When you are making up your shopping list check the prices against your price book and the store's online prices. Then, and only then, will you be able to determine just where the cheapest prices are.

For example Costco here in Melbourne sells bulk lots of toilet paper (it seems to be what they are famous for). It's Kleenex, 180 sheets on a roll and when I was there it was 50c a roll. Aldi sell the equivalent toilet paper, 260 sheets to a roll for just 33 cents. I know where my dollars are going.

Aldi has pure maple syrup at $6.99 for 250ml ($28.00 a litre). Costco sells pure maple syrup for just $14.99 a litre. Again, I know where my dollars will be going.

I realize that not everyone has access to Costco and Aldi. But most Australians have access to at least two supermarkets. Take five minutes, do your research, check your prices and buy where you get the most bang for your buck.
