Comparing Prices

I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this or not, but Mr. and I were shopping last night and noticed that the smaller sizes were often less expensive than the larger ones. The store that we were in guarantees low prices, but the smaller box of cereal was less per ounce than the larger box. Weird. Typically, I would think that the opposite were true. We found this with laundry detergent, cereal, salad dressing, etc. Since we're trying to save money (isn't everyone these days?), this tip came in handy when we went to the next store (which doesn't post how much everything is per ounce). We recommend using the calculator on your phone to figure everything else (and write yourself a note to help compare prices from one store to the next).
