Just did my weekly big shop today – came home with 10 bags and a HUGE hole in my pocket from how expensive it was!! I am astonished that even though i did not purchase any cleaning products or even nappies, i ended up spending well over $350! As i put the shopping away, i wondered where all the money had gone and why it cost so much. It is getting so expensive to feed a family (and i can imagine people with large families would really struggle). I want to cook and promote healthy eating in my household – it almost seems unfair that the price of healthy food is so expensive. And they wonder why obesity rates are getting higher? People cannot afford to buy fresh fruit and veggies, let alone the other daily necessities??? Feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole experience.
