The food costs are staggering - a friend of mine works in Tesco and she says that the cost of the same type of milk varies up to 50% extra! People don't complain because they don't notice as it's something most people buy regularly.
How can a loaf of bread be priced at £1.50?! We make our own here - Lidl's flour 60-odd pence a bag and you'll get 3 loaves out of it :p (tip - don't buy Tesco's own white bread flour. Nurse Veg is convinced it is part flour and part powdered gluten it is so weirdly elastic )
Everything from food to toiletries is going up - we've become a bit sad about the whole thing, actually, as this 'recession' nonsense seems to be encouraging some of our raw material suppliers to up their previous costs. Our prices are staying put despite their own increases but we're more than a mite annoyed as it appears that some large companies are trying to cash in on the 'credit crunch'
