With the current financial climate, the instability of the major banks/financial institutions, the time has come to cinch the money belt a little tighter.
With the cost of fuel being so high, the resultant increases in costs have hit across the board with food prices increasing.
I do try to shop for bargains, but can easily be lured by the promise of bogof (buy one get one free) and love the supermarket's finest products.. and farm produce but no more.. time to look to cheaper brands and reduce the bill to a more manageable level.
However, and it is a big however, I really don't want to buy into the mass marketed meat where the animals haven't had much of a life but those are generally the cheaper options. So how do I balance my cash and conscience?
