Yeah well spar does an even better job , shitter produce for marks and Spencer prices, 

We do lidls/Aldi for main shop , I don't mind co-op as I don't like big supermarkets and it's next to my butcher 😂, I will use small individual shops like butchers , pet supplies etc where it's practical 

There's a coop 2 secs from my house that's becoming a spar; the estate is deprived enough as it is.

 

The other thing I don't think helps is how so few people now know how to use fresh ingredients or even ingredients that they aren't just warming up. You can go to the coop at 9pm each night and all the veg will be reduced, along with anything wholemeal, often the seafood and cuts of meat but they've never got a reduced shitty sandwich that they'll charge 2.50 for ... says to me people can't or won't cook

Best to just eat your stuff in the shop

The article shows a kilo of Lurpack  for £9.35.at one of the cheaper supermarkets. How do you shop around when you are already shopping at a cut price outlet, have no car and a bunch of hungry kids at home?

Who buys a kilo of butter at a time ?

Asda is charging £2.25 for the "normal" size carton we buy, but if you go next door to Lidls their own brand "Danpack" is £1.75, probably comes from the same supplier, and, to me, tastes the same.

Yes, of course prices are going up, but it's easy to shop around, we have an Asda, Tesco, B&M, Farmfoods, Iceland, Aldi, Lidl all within easy walking distance. We also have Sainsbury's, M&S, but f**k them !

Of course things are getting harder, but shopping around is easy, and it's all about supply and demand...... if we only shop at the places that are cheaper, then the more expensive places will have to drop their prices.

But I think your more interested in having an argument with me than having a discussion.

Cheers.

I know a certain bar which is opposite a Farmfoods. You just give your list to the smackhead in the bar, he goes "shopping" for you, and it's only half price ! 

Cheers.

On the contrary, you are the individual who suggested I was being sensationalist...bit bitchy.

There are two types of  working class oldies who are comfortably off.  One pulls up the drawer bridge and says, well If I can make money so can you and has no affiliation with the poor.

  There's another who says I was dead lucky, there's plenty of my mates who weren't, things are a LOT harder for young people then they once were. Stats show working class people are being squeezed like never before.

I think you fit in the former category.

Then you don't know me whatsoever, but you've allways seemed to have a grudge against me, your comments on my dogs breeding and who bred them, even though you were proven wrong every time seems to support my thoughts.

Whenever I post my opinions, which I'm always at pains to explain are only MY opinions, you seem to want to contradict me.

I used to get into arguments on here and other sites, but age and circumstances made me change my outlook. I'm 70 years old and have far more important things on my mind than arguing on an internet site, so, I'll not take anything you say to heart ! 👍

Cheers.

It could be due to people struggling but I'd imagine it's because they're things the door to doors have always lifted 

My misses is a baker and uses stork for baking; in the last year it has gone from £2.10 to £3.25. May not sound much but like alot of other stuff it has gone up over 50% when they're saying inflation is 10% ... how do you justify the additional cost to people's food shops? You can't imo, someone on the breadline who has £50 to do a shop is getting half what they did last year. 

We've also noticed through looking back through her books (we were on about this the other night) that things have just been creeping by a few pence here and there.

👍anybody with a brain can see foods gone up 

you spend 200 a week on shopping be more like 280 now
