Is it really the better buy? 05/02/2012
I had to run into the store for an onion and I decided I'd also grab some premade pudding cups. Once when we were on a beach vacation, I stuck popsicle sticks in these little cups and froze them for my Littles to eat. I mean, you can't beat a 22 cent treat like that, right? Well, my little-Little thinks that these treats are the coolest thing since sliced bread and she's about wilted when she steps off that school bus in the afternoons, but I digress.
This is what I found when I went to grab some pudding cups at the Kroger.
So, that would be 12 pudding cups for 29 cents each.
And that's on sale! Or...
I could get the same size pudding cups for 25 cents each. (You are not required to buy 10 in the 10 for $10 sale.)
The moral of this story is even if it's "on sale" and in a bulk "discounted" package, it doesn't make it the better buy. For the same amount of product, I paid 49 cents less by purchasing the smaller packs. This kind of shenanigans can be found throughout the grocery store, so just watch for it, friends! Peace, B.
