Summary: PYP Pricebook 2.0 includes price per oz. calculations, a blank price page, and a price page for premium shampoos.
The feedback for the new Pinching Your Pennies pricebook was fabulous! Your comments, posts on the forums, and PMs to me were excited and exciting. Thank you!
One thing I began to wonder as I looked at the price book was this: the price points are there for specific sizes of items, for instance, a 15 oz. can of Chili, so a person knows that if they find a 15 oz. can for 79 cents, that’s a pretty good deal. But what if a person find a 28 oz. can of chili at Costco for 1.64? How can they easily figure out how good of a price that is?
So, in the Pinching Your Pennies price book 2.0, I’ve added price per unit calculations. Now, instead of just telling you what a three, four, or five star price for a can of 15 oz. chili is, it also tells you how those three, four, and five star prices translate into pennies per oz. Then when you’re confronted with your life-altering Costco chili dilemma, you can do a little math on the Costco chili and find that 2.50/36 (the price divided by the oz.) comes to 5.1 cents per oz. You glance at the price book and realize that that’s a four-star price per oz. Not a bad deal! The price per oz. calculations will help people adapt the price book to their particular shopping styles.
The new price book also includes a blank sheet at the beginning, so that users can print it out and use it for items for which there are no sheets in the price book. It also includes a new price page for premium shampoos like Sunsilk, Pantene, and Pert.
