Now I realize the price of food is going up, but I got another shock when I popped into the grocery store today. I normally buy the no name margarine for baking. I buy the 3.18kg size and it lasts me a while. It normally costs between $5 to $6 a tub, today's price..........$10.49 This is crazy. I bought flour today just the small bag and that cost $4.49, I normally buy the 10kg size, but its so expensive now. Luckily we are not that big on rice, but I hear that has gone up in price. The ladies at the store were saying bread is also getting more and more expensive. I bought a couple of no name loaves today and had to pay $2.49 a loaf. Luckily I FOF so at least I am getting other things for free when I shop.
Here is a look at today's haul, only the four things on the left were the FREE items, the rest I paid for.
If I had bought those items they would have cost me $16.36. I spent $16.47 at the store, and I needed the bread, the lunch meat and the bacon. The flour was an extra, but something I need and I use.
