Back to the Basics / Couponing 101

My Personal Price Points!

I have been working on compiling a HUGE list of all my personal Price Points.  So many of you have asked me for them who are new to finding deals and using coupons. Hopefully knowing what I will and won’t pay will help you figure out your own price points for certain items.

Before we go any further, a Price Point is the amount of money you are willing to pay for an item.  Any deal higher than that is too much to pay for that item.

Here are a just a few of my own Price Points off the top of my head.  Like I said, I’m working on a FULL list, but it is taking forever to do. 😉

  1. thank you that gives me some idea of where i can be with groceries.

  2. Thanks for that info!! Still fairly a newbie at this, just started in June. Can’t wait to see your full list!! Keep up the good work, it’s a huge help!

  3. Thanks so much! that really helps!

  4. That’s about where I agree too. My husband thinks I’m too cheap it’s great to have backup to say see, see! :)

  5. I would love to see your price points on canned food. I never know what is a good deal and what is normal.

  6. How do u pay so little for diapers?! The lowest I seem to be able to go is around $10 for a big box (66+)

  7. Where do you but cereal for that cheap?

  8. I cannot wait to see your full list! I have been looking all over for a good price guide since I started couponing this past May. I hope to see it soon! I’m gonna put it in my binder!

  9. I would love to see the full list, too! I am new to this and thought that $1.50 for a 32-34 loads bottle of detergent was good – but maybe there are better deals out there more often than not…


  10. I agree with your list, except for the strawberries and cereal. The Aldi in this area routinely does strawberries at $.99/lb, even $.89 on a good day. And I’m thrilled to find name brand cereal for $1/box! My all in price is about $1.50. Sometimes I can get it for the equivalent of $.50/box with gasoline rewards, but those are few and far between.

  11. Thank you very much. Im still new, but learning with every bit of information you share. I appreciate you!!!!

  12. Every area is going to be different. It is super rare to find strawberries in UT for .89 like Melanie says and there is no Aldi in UT(which is an awesome store). I just moved from UT to CO and the prices here are higher, but with coupons I am still going strong.

  13. Oh my gosh… you can buy cereal for $.75 sometimes?!! WOW! I should probably start couponing. Right now I buy the boxes of cereal that are $2.50 or less!

  14. Wow…that tells me that even though I think I am getting really good deals there are better ones out there! I need to quit my job so I have more time to figure all of this out…oh, wait…that would cost more!!! lol

  15. Thanks for the info :) I was wondering if you have any price points for Tide? I never seem to know what a good deal is for it. I have just always bought it when I needed it, not looking at the prices and waiting for sales.

  16. When you get a chance, will you please clarify your diaper price points into per diaper? I’m not sure how many diapers are in a Jumbo Pack since I mainly like to purchase my diapers in bulk. I only like to pay .11 – .15 per diaper, but am curious as to where your target price is please? Thank you so much for ALL you do! :)
