Have a look at this lot!
Yes, I've been doing the grocery shopping.
Can you believe the amount of time we spend on food .....
preparing it,..... cooking it, .... storing it ,
EATING it !
and it costs more and more every day.
When we were overseas a couple of years ago in the UK and USA and Canada we noticed how much cheaper food is in those places.
It must have something to do with volume of sales and also competition.
Our population is just too small to create enough profit without high prices. Not enough volume of sales.
Plus we really only have two major supermarket chains and they control the prices.
Then there's meat .
Aussies love their meat.
$8.80 for 5 lamb chops !
I wonder how that compares with the UK.
That's about 5.25 GBP and $8USA although I don't think they eat a lot of lamb in the USA
It will be interesting to compare prices when we shop for food at the local supermarket while we are staying in our French gites.
