How Read The Price Tags In The Big Box Stores

Price For An Eight Foot 1x6 Poplar Board At Lowe's

For me, the big box stores are Lowe's and Home Depot. "Big Blue" and "Big Orange."


The lighting is poor, and many of the price tags are located where you need to get down on the floor with a flashlight to read them. The stock is often in the wrong bin or mislabeled, with the wood prices as high as they are now. I don't want any surprises when I get to the checkout. I want to know how much it's going to cost me before I load my cart.


While shopping for poplar lumber one day and squinting at the price tag, it occurred to me that maybe I could take a photo of the price tag with my phone. It worked like a charm. I could easily read the tag on my phone, and now I have a copy of the price tag in case there is a problem at the register. In addition, I have a dated record of how much the item cost.
