Well I’m still sure your margin of error, even on an item you never buy, would be reasonable compared to someone like Romney. “What’s a dozen eggs go for, $20, $30?” (not a real quote)

But yeah, long done are the days when I could tell you the price of things within 10 cents, or compare across stores for anything except my most commonly purchased items (like milk, $/lb for apples, avocados, kale, loaf of bread, etc.) Otherwise for purchases I just compare the per-oz costs of different brands and choose the cheapest (e.g., crackers). Or for non-perishables, if I notice a sale sticker then I pick up a few up (e.g., canned beans). It’s not because I’m rich, it’s because I spend my time commitment more useful info to memory
