I am Keeper of the Purse Strings, Queen of the Budget, and know a rip off when I see one.
Well, it wasn’t me, but Hubby.
You may remember in this post I was pleased that we’d been able to get some pulses (lentils, chick peas, split peas etc) for our stews, and even better, having bought 2 packs, we’d only been charged for one.
The cost of a 500g bag then was a mere £1.15.
The world has gone mad, and this particular supermarket is trying to placate its share holders by bumping up prices. This week, the same 500g bag was marked up as £7.
Hopefully this was just a pricing error and they don’t really expect people to pay that.
Or do they?
