Do bar codes annoy you?

I live alone, so there are things like dishwasher tablets and washing machine capsules which I don't buy every month. I can't compare prices in various supermarkets, because I can't remember what I paid last time and the price isn't on the package.

    then you probably need to shop more often. Compare reciepts, ask around, use the internet, Learn about it instead of letting yourself get annoyed by little things like bar codes.

    You become a smart shopper thru experience.

    Buy a black marker, and write the price on those items when you buy them. But what will that do for you? The price is very possibly different a few months later at the store you bought it at.

      Yes, luv, but I can still figure out which store is the cheapest. However, it's not a bad idea, thanks!

    The price would never be printed on the package as the retailers set the prices but the box comes from the factory.

    Bar codes do more than just tell the price. They tell the computer system (for inventory) that the item was purchased and when enough are purchased, the store places an order for more of them.

    Yes, it also identifies the item by price, but there is more to the bar codes than that.

    No, if I was that absent minded I would write down the price of goods and check it at the supermarket.
