Here is my situation in regards to shopping (this also holds true for any type of shopping not just food and household supplies.) I live in the middle of nowhere--literally. Closest major city is 3-4 hours away (Pittsburgh and Buffalo) two minor cities are within an hour drive. In my town we have 1 grocery store, a Dollar General, a Rite Aid, and two other locally owned pharmacies; we also have a locally owned butcher.
Within a 30 minute drive we have a Super WalMart and one more grocery store, another butcher, and another Dollar General. For a 60 minute drive you can add two more grocery stores another Walmart and a KMart. Y'all see where I'm going with this, not many options to work with.
So how do I make a price book work for me?
Below are some articles pertaining to price books that have got me to think that I may be able to adapt a conventional price book to my situation.
- Starting a price book--Price Book 101
- Developing a Price Book
- Grocery Price Book Spreadsheet
- Starting A Pricebook
- Make A Price Book: Power Tool For Supermarket Savings!"
- Grocery Price Book Spreadsheet--I have not downloaded this yet, if I do I will let y'all know how it is
Wish me luck :))
