    It's not hard to grow lol. We have about 6 bulbs in at the moment. We just pulled cloves off a store bought bulb and buried them in the garden.

    I do. Always food but wool products too. Got to support our primary producers- we need all the bloomin' help we can get.

    I will try to buy aus where I can but if something is double the price of the non aus brand we just couldn't afford to do that with everything. If the aus product is a similar price or a little dearer we will buy it everytime

    I will always try to buy Australian owned and made (I've even contacted one shampoo company as their packaging stopped saying Australian owned - they have since fixed that up!). There are exceptions, clothing (it used to be possible, but now it is just too hard), particular brands (ie pesto from Australia in supermarkets I find yucky) etc. It is getting harder to track some stuff down now though - ie when Woolies just decides it won't stock something anymore.

    We are very particular with our milk and I only buy Mungulli Creek or Misty Mountains (which is prob only available in NQ) as they are a local company and I don't mind paying more. $2.50 a litre is perfectly reasonable, I think the cost of milk has just become ridiculously cheap now - farmers won't be able to stay in business.

    I do as much as I can.
    I buy local fruit and veggies from markets close to my workplace, and lots of my little girls clothes from there as well (really fabulous clothes)! Eggs from a friend of a friend, local meat when I can. But have had a hard time convincing my teens clotheswise who are very brand conscious and can't find much for myself anyway and I end up buying lots of Country Road etc and I know it's pretty much all out of China

    A lot of our furniture I have had made, so I know it's Australian.

    For anyone - Where or what are you buying for yourself in the way of clothes if you are buying Australian owned and Australian made? Would love to know!

    Unless there is no other option, all of our food is Australian.
    Everything else (clothes, furniture etc.) I buy from anywhere.
