  • The CFO Price Book: What do you want to see?

    One of the questions I’m regularly asked is if a sale price is low enough to be considered a stock up price, so I thought it would be good to share my target prices. I usually have two prices for items – one that’s low enough that I’ll buy as much as I can, and one that’s not quite as low but it’s low enough to pick up a few months’ worth.

    The last time I kept a written price book was five years ago, when I noticed prices starting to rise. Prices have risen even more since then, but I just keep my price book in my head.

    So I want to know: Which of my target prices do you want to see in a future post?

    Let me know in the comments!


    1. Paper products, cleaning products, feminine hygiene

    2. baby products!!, meat prices!!, battery prices, pretty much all toiletry and make-up items, cat litter, infant and kid medicines, advil, baking staples (powdered sugar, flour, sugar, oils, vinegars, baker’s chocolate), cereals, dairy products (various cheeses or types of cheese, sour cream, butter, whipping cream, yogurt)….

      I also don’t know what good prices are on things that aren’t the couponing staples….things like canned chilis, canned mushrooms, rice, spices (cumin, red pepper, curry, and the reg stuff), tortillas, pretty much everything!
