I recorded my shopping bill from 10-12-2015 (Woolies) and
I went and bought exactly the same 30 products on 10-12-2016 and found:

Total bill up $34.65
6 items with less weight
biggest price increase Small goods, ham, bacon etc
2nd biggest fresh fruit, peaches, apples etc
3rd biggest increase household items, washing liquid, cleaning fluids etc
3 items with same prices
1 item lower price Fresh Salmon from Tassie

Try it for next year, it is fun to see which one tries to get the most $'s from you.

GST should be higher. and apply to everything.
Government would be rolling in cash ...until they find some crazy way of spending more. :character-oldtimer: :character-oldtimer: :character-oldtimer:
