To respond to your claim your solution to the previous sample is somewhat 
simpler, here's another solution using a grid template :

/* first template */
#grid > tr {
    display: grid; grid-template:
    "aaabc"
    "aaabd";
}

/* second template */
#grid > tr {
    display: grid; grid-template:
    "aaab"
    "aaac"
    "aaad";
}

.oldPrice { grid-cell: "b"; }
.newPrice { grid-cell: "c"; }
...

BTW, your solution didn't use media queries, but it is broken since the 
price will end up right-aligned in narrow screen (see attachement). You'll 
still need some mechanism to switch from one layout to another.




For your new example, it's not so complex:

#grid { grid-columns: 250px 1fr 250px }; grid-flow; rows; }
#grid > * { grid-column: 2 }

When the user reorder divs, you can use "transform: translate" while the 
element is moved, and then set "grid-column" to the value of the column 
where the element has been dropped (1 for widget, 1 for main, 2 for info). 
If you want to change the vertical order inside a column, too, you will have 
to change the source order, as specifiecd in "7.5.1 Automatic Grid Item 
Placement Algorithm".

Oh, media queries... My example don't need it.

And my solution looks simpler, is not?

Can you draw your solution?

And I have another example.
