Ounces to Cents...

Something I started doing when I go grocery shopping is finding out how much more of the product I get for the price and this can be done by just differentiating between the price and the ounces within the food. I've noticed that the savings may only be a few cents here and there but I'm one of those people who thinks a penny earned is a penny saved. Do you have any quirky saving tips for when you go shopping??

I do this also, and I have noticed that a lot of the time, buying something in a larger size is usually a better deal for your money. Of course, this only works if you will actually be able to use all of the item before it goes bad. Like buying a big container of cottage cheese, for us, is a waste of money a lot of the time, because we will never eat it all before it turns sour. I don't know that this is so much quirky, but I plan our weekly menus based on what items are on sale. For example, if I see that tortillas are on sale, we will probably plan to have tacos at some point during that week.
