Where before I always believed that buying the large size could save me money, now I am careful in checking the volume versus the price. For instance, the pasta that weighs 1 kilo has a price of 88 pesos and the 400 grams costs 52 pesos. Obviously, the larger pack is discounted. But there was a time (another brand of pasta) that the 1 kilo was 90 and the 450-gram pack costs 35. Doing a mental computation, the smaller pack costs less than buying the large pack of equal volume. That’s also the case sometimes with cooking oil. That’s why we always check the volume vis-à-vis the price in comparing the large pack with the small pack.
