The above was calculated from a basic list and one of the higher ranking supermarkets compared to our shopping around in two or three other outlets.
These days, the weights of some items have changed (I’ve tried to pro rata where I could), we’ve gone back to ‘branded’ products in some instances, and others we just don’t buy anymore.
My new list shows the monetary difference as well as a percentage change so I hope you can follow it OK.
As I was doing it, I was surprised at how little some of our usual items have increased, though opting for Yorkshire Tea Bags may seem expensive compared to getting 160 for our money before, but we do get two decent cups of tea per bag, so theoretically our 120 bags are 240 cups. We shop around for Maggie’s food as it can vary from £7.98 to as little as £4.50, but I usually pay £5.50 now.
A 500g tub of Flora will last me quite a while as I don’t have spread on my bread now as a rule.
Our toothpaste is still for sensitive teeth, but what we bought 4 years ago is discontinued and we have found an alternative for less.
Wonder what it will look like post Brexit (if it ever happens)?
