What do you know about using a Buy Price List?

How do you know if the sale minus coupon price is the best price around?  A lot of bargain shoppers create a "Buy Price List" (mine is in my head - not on paper).

In a nutshell - this is a list of rock bottom prices you will pay for any given product.  When you find a sale that makes a product that price - then you know to stock up!

A couple prices for items on my "Buy Price List" are:

Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast $1.50/lb
Ground Beef (at least 80/20) $1/lb
Cereal $0.25/box
Milk $2/gallon
Cheese $1.25/lb
Bananas $0.30/lb
Apples $1/lb
Bread/Buns $0.25 a pkg

Toilet Paper $0.20/roll

Most toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deoderant, etc) $0.25 ea
Diapers (size 4-6) $0.10 per diaper
Baby Wipes $0.005 per wipe

Those are just a few things off the top of my head.  Because of the way I coupon (ya know - EXTREME) I try to get most of my needed items for free and stock up big time. The things above are rarely free.  When things are free or less than my "Buy" price - I will buy as many as I think I can use before the expiration date (or until I run out of coupons).

There's a great video talking about this here.

So what is on your "Buy Price" list?  Leave a comment below!
