Food Costs in Australia: Use a Butcher or a Supermarket to buy your Meat?.

Many people do their grocery shopping at a Supermarket, and don’t shop around at the other smaller specialist shops, such as a local Butcher.

Not all areas have a butcher that caters for a reasonable price, but I have found one near most areas that I have lived.

Shopping around is not for everyone, some people value time more than money, and are happy to pay the higher prices that the main supermarkets are also happy to charge.

However, if cost is important, then it can pay to shop around.

I spent $53.69 today, and it would have been $112.47 using the Coles prices, which, are very, very close to Woolworths prices.

The following prices are ACTUAL today, 5th August 2016.
