Lili over at CreativeSavv, has frequently mention buying graham crackers over at Dollar Tree. I wondered if they were any good as well as a good bargain. I was there today, so I grabbed 2 boxes, noting the weight of the package and then wondering just how much is in a standard box of grahams anyway.
The Dollar Tree version @ $2 (2 boxes), for 19.2 oz=10 cents/oz. Another way to put this is the PR grahams would cost me $2.16 for the same weight at the DT ones, which I bought for $2 or the DT ones would cost me $1.44 for the same weight as the PR ones, which cost me $1.59.
Assume that I stick with the DT ones (gaining more crackers in the cupboard), and if I buy 1 box/month, I will save 15 cents/box over the PR grahams, so $1.80/year, allowing me a month and more of "free" grahams compared to paying $1.59/14.4 oz box of PR grahams.
Mind your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves. : )
