NON-BRAND vs. NAME BRAND:

Try buying Non-Brand Name items. Store labels or no-name brands are often cheaper then well marketed national brands. Most The time they are the exact same products. Read the ingredients list and compare the products to make sure they have they exact same. You normally find with pharmacy related products they are the exact same thing just different name and different prices.

PRICE PER UNIT:

When buying look at the price per unit. When comparing similar items among your brands. Look at more than just the price; you want to consider the amount to. You want to check the price per unit. Some stores show you in tiny print on their label on the shelf. Sometimes you may need to bring your own calculator or most phones now have calculators to find out for yourself.

To find out the price per unit for example on diapers Take the price amount of diapers in the box and divide it by the number of actual diapers in the box to.

Example

Diapers cost $20 and there is 40 Diapers in the box  so you will do 20/40 (20 divided by 40) = $ 0.50 So you are paying $0.50 per diaper

 

For non food related items like batteries and cell phone cases try places like ebay you will more likely find it for a fraction of the cost that you would in a store
