Today while checking out my shopping bill (from a leading supermarket) what was a typical weekly shop, I was surprised
how much everythings gone up...like by about 40% up from last year...and it had me thinking.
I have been reasonably happy with this set up and I keep a eye on what am buying, even dabbled with online shopping
which has been convenient and delivered on time.
Thing is, what has happened to the prices of late....and why are the supermarkets taking advantage over the consumer ?
If your'e single, its going to be an expensive ride....very.
Baguettes that used to be 99p are now Â£1.68, this was the first thing i clocked, but there were various foods with a increase
of at least 40p hike on say 3 months ago...butter and most dairy foods by as much as 30%
Seen on breakfast tele this morning that the food prices are going to hike up with the extra costs abroad to provide products,so the wages freeze but prices increase,where does this end? how do we manage? does this not mean we are still in a recession? work is very hard to come by too, so does this mean we will starve or will times get better ?
Here in the UK the govt is hell bent on keeping to its economic strategy plan of avoiding inflation at any cost for fear of increasing interest
rates.....and result...most will suffer.
Interesting to read that Europe can no longer self supply its own food produce owing to the fact that the east can now afford to match
Perhaps it will start with petrol prices....now getting to a stage we can't go anywhere (or as far as we could) in our cars, change our
dietary ways, look at new methods of recyclement etc.
We have reached beyond the point of peak sustainable food supply... so interesting times ahead .
