Shopping by Price Book Pays for Family Holiday


I recently read Debt Free, Cashed Up and Laughing and started my own list of particular specials, what dates they come on sale and for how much. Being coffee drinkers, we started purchasing our Nescafe in the 500g tin instead of little containers and based on $14.99 per can every 5 - 6 weeks, as opposed to $25 when not on special, we worked out we would be saving $80 over the year on coffee alone. Not only that, shampoo is another fantastic bargain when on special. Be prepared to buy and stock up when Pears and Wella get down to $1.99 per 400ml instead of $4.29 per 400ml. .49c per 100ml or $1.24 per 100ml (and very occasionally you can get it for .39c per 100ml but I've only seen this price once so far this year). And if you are paying 45c or more per toilet roll for a decent brand you need to do a price check too. Purex and Wondersoft are regular brands that you can pick up for .31 and .33 cents per roll instead of .50 to .55c per roll. You'll be surprised at how much you can save over the year. We are putting our extra money saved in to a holiday fund for us and our three children. Queensland, here we come!
