With the falling value of the pound, the prices of many foods are rising. Is it time to look at our food bill and try to trim them a little? There are more prices rises in the pipeline and so even if we aren’t feeling the pinch now, we soon will be. As always, we should be looking for value for money.
One of the first things I check before shopping online is the delivery costs. I checked out Home Bargains this morning and their delivery costs seemed reasonable but large items cost 7.99 to deliver so consider that before you order. There is only one parcel charge per order but realise your order could be split into two parcels, that is true for other online suppliers too.
The economy is still recovering from the Brexit vote, but the pound is still down. There is still a glut of oil worldwide and so we can expect rising food prices just like in 2008 but at least this time petrol prices shouldn’t go up too much. It’s not only imported food that could rise in price but home produced food too as farmers face rising costs. The rising prices could be offset by the supermarket price war, but they won’t be cutting prices across the board.
