How to tell if you are getting a sale or not

How do you know if something is a good price on sale or not?  I use the bulk prices as my bottom dollar.  If I can get something cheaper than their per can, per pound, per loaf price then I consider it a good deal and I buy it.  This is my updated spreadsheet that I keep with me when going through the ads every week.  If its cheaper than these I buy it, if not I keep what I need on the Costco list.  I haven't added toilet paper or paper towels yet but those are generally cheaper at discount stores also.
