Knowing when to buy and when to pass on a sale is an important part of being a Krazy Couponer. Make sure you set personal price points and stock up when sales match up.
A price point is the highest price you are willing to pay for a certain product. Price points will differ by region and your needs. For example, your price point for a loaf of bread may be higher for gluten-free options, a favorite brand of laundry detergent, or organic items. Other factors will be areas that double coupons, cost of living, limited supply or high demand.
Check out the KCL Stock Up Price List that shows 3-month stock up prices (very good) or 6-month (amazing!) prices to serve as a guideline for your personal price points. In general, price points will be a bit higher than stock up prices, but it will give you a good idea of what to look for.
