Basically every store gives you a discount for buying in bulk, nothing new here.

There may be some exceptions, although none come to mind ATM, but it's normal for larger packages of basically anything to have a lower cost per unit of weight or volume provided you compare regular price vs regular price or sale price vs sale price. As a probably familiar example, a club pack of lean ground beef, BLSL chicken breasts, etc. costs less per kg than smaller packages of the exact same things.

What's less common but far more illogical is when a store has the larger size for sale at regular price and the smaller size is on sale such that the unit price of the small size is actually cheaper. For example, the 500gm size is $4.99 and the 250gm size is on sale for $1.99.

Yup, it's nice when a grocery store puts the per unit pricing on the price tag. saves having to whip out the calculator app.bylo wrote: ↑ What's less common but far more illogical is when a store has the larger size for sale at regular price and the smaller size is on sale such that the unit price of the small size is actually cheaper.

It's important for shoppers to compare the unit price of similar items to see which is cheapest. You need good eyes because unit prices are shown at the bottom of the shelf label in tiny type that's difficult for mere mortals to read.

Anybody who's decently thrifty knows this... It's not some big secret. I highly doubt that anyone on RFD thinks Costco is the cheapest for each and every product they carry.PointsHubby wrote: ↑ Lots of folks there “drink the koolaid” believing bulk is cheaper
Not always so
It’s truly about know8ng prices and the true PER UNIT Costing
We buy a lot of stuff at Costco ... but can consistently get our brand name paper products (Bounty - Cotonelle - Scottie’s) elsewhere far cheaper
And sometimes this is true for other items as well
Costco has excellent prices on the mega jugs of laundry detergent
BUT ... knowing the true price per milliliter means sometimes a sale elsewhere is cheaper ... but the trade off is smaller jugs

For me it's Amazon.
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet

+1,. I can't see any good reason to buy shredded cheese. The word pulp comment seals that opinion.carmaster wrote: ↑ If you need only 320G you are going to spend $6, not going to spend $11 if you don't need the extra 500G. My real question is why do you buy No Name shredded cheese? Buy the 450G blocks for $3.99 and shred them yourself. That way you get more Cheese, better quality and more value.
