I had been paid $60 for doing some housecleaning, so off I went shopping. I try to wait until I earn some money to do any shopping...I had also sold 2 pies, so these groceries were paid for!
This is what I got.
There was one more 24 pack of gingerale. One sale item didn't show up, but I will swallow the $2 difference. I had coupons, plus found sausage 50% off and 30% off. This will be a special treat. Butter was regular price at $4.39 and I had to buy a few sweets for daughter #1's grade 8 graduation party.
They were in the clearance pile.
All this ~ $84.40.
Now, my folks went to a larger center 2.5 hours away for a specialist appt and did some shopping.
See that 500 g Pepperoni stick for $6.29? My parents got a 3 kg one for $8.99. That is 6 times the size and only $3 more???? Can anyone feel my frustration? They looked everywhere for fruit, but didn't find much...they were told everything is 3 weeks behind. I love to shop local, but the prices sometimes make it impossible. All the money I spend is essentially borrowed money, so these things hurt.
I have bought POP in a case 2 times in 4 years. Each time for a special reason.
The laundry soap showed up so I bought $15 worth which will last me over a year....that felt great.
So there's some Canadian prices in BC.
