I got a full small-trolly for £49 today with 10 days worth off food.
I was reading this. Why is the USA so expensive for food when the UK prices havent increased that much.
I don’t know really, but I’m in the USA and have been not eating as much because food has gotten so expensive. It’s just as well as I need to lose some weight.
i got 10 meals and some other essentials for £56 it’s better quality food though, the cheaper it is not as good.
I got 1kg of mature cheddar cheese - Morrisons
small bottle of olive oil
Plus the rest off my stuff. I got chicken thighs, sausages and mince (ground) meat 500g, Mushrooms. I got a small trolly full off food. for £49.
I guess it depends where you shop here in the US. I could probably get all that stuff for $60-$70 at Aldi’s, but it would be low quality.
Morrison is high quality. Even Aldi here in the UK has a good reputation but I have to walk to the supermarket and its too far for me to go to Aldi.
Nothing wrong with Aldi – and I bet it’s better quality in Europe than here. It just has a connotation as being “cheap” here. Again, nothing wrong with that. I used to shop there.
As far as your original question, I don’t know. Everything in the US has become more expensive. I was never good at economics, so I don’t have a good answer. Cost of living has gone up, so I assume grocery stores are just keeping up.
This is my bill today, is it different from Usa? Idk
I go for all the cheapest products anyway. If I can find my bill I will post it. I got alot more than that from Morrisons for £49.
I don’t know if it is or isn’t. But you are also comparing two different currencies with different values for one. I’m sure that makes some of the difference.
Pound and dollar are not that far apart and also Gas is cheaper in the US, but understandable more miles covered to deliver products. We have Europe near too.
we get our gas from Russia and they are a bunch of pricks right now
my biggest expense was 300g of pistachio nuts for £5
Thats expensive. Also I noticed butter has gone up (Larpack) from £3.50 to £4.50. I’m going to get generic version next time. Even the Aldi one tastes nice (Norpack) at £3.00 I think.
Gladly the incontinence products I use haven’t gone up in price.
if i wanted i could get some very cheap items as a member of a pantry but i’d rather buy the better quality stuff if i can afford it.
