Stockup Price Points

I am in the process of putting together a list of stock-up prices for various common items. It is not possible to get every item for free, so it can be helpful to know what is a decent, good, great, or stock-up price, especially if you are just starting out.

Each week, I will feature a list of a different topic, and I will have the whole list available when it is complete! The first listed price is the MOST I will pay for an item (if we are down to the last 1 or 2), and the second price is my stock-up price point, often the lowest price I have seen on the item, and would constitute buying as many as you needed for a 3-6 month period.

Here is the first list, from the personal care category:
