    I think you're right, for some reason i though they were meant to be cheaper ☺️

    We definitely spend more on groceries/ petrol than we did a year ago. And don't get me started on electricity prices!!!

    SupaIGAs can be quite cheap (so the large, Coles/Woolies sized ones), whereas the small ones (7-11/Niteowl sized) tend to be relatively more expensive.

    Both tend to have good specials though, so if you have the capacity to shop at more than one store, it might be worth doing the catalogue comparison each week.

    The price of bread depresses me, Coles has the regular "sale" of two loaves for $7, seriously?! It's bread!!

    It's ridiculous. We're in a regional area so it's not as easy as shopping around for the best deal - you either shop locally at exorbitant prices, or drive 100kms+ to get to Coles/woolies. Every month I look at how much is spent at the supermarket and it's just ridiculous. I keep thinking that a family of 3 can't be spending that much but we do (and I do also cook a lot from scratch which in theory is cheaper). It's getting harder to make ends meet

    I'm am ex Perth resident who resides in Victoria and I do find Perth ridiculously overpriced when I go back to see friends and family. I find in Melbourne I can afford to eat out a couple of times during the week but could not afford to do that in Perth!
