Watch for unit pricing!

Sometimes the BIG jar is not the best deal! Many companies are getting tricky with their pricing, sizing, and packaging. Recently a peanut butter jar was changed. It didn't look any different because the concave bottom of the jar came up into the container and took a few ounces of product away. Well, when stocking the shelves it looked exactly the same unless you saw the tiny numbers had changed on the ounces. Even the stores didn't realize so the shelving labels were not changed. We all know buying bulk is always cheaper, but for some reason the industry doesn't seem to agree all of the time. Just watch for the unit pricing on your shelf labels and verify the bar code matches the one on the item you picked up. If you're a real math nerd, check them occasionally to see if they are true to their ink.
