Understanding Pricing

 In English

Compare Prices

This month our friends at Cooking Matters have come up with a few tips to help shoppers understand pricing at the grocery store.  These quick tips can help you save money on the foods you love most!

Use the unit price to find the best buy. With the unit price (typically a price per pound or ounce), you can compare:

    • The same food in different form (like whole carrots and baby carrots)
      Foods in different size containers (like a half-gallon and whole gallon of milk)
    • Foods in a similar category or food group (like a pound of zucchini and a pound of asparagus)
    • Different brands of the same food (like name-brand or store-brand cereal)
    • Want to learn more? For more information on comparing unit prices, refer to this Cooking Matters video.
