How much food costs nowadays?

No, really... it does!
But does it matter more in Malta than at home?

NO ADVERTISING - financial services adverts belong in our classifieds section. Get-rich-quick schemes belong in the trash.

How much food costs nowadays?

Postby drumultaberei » Mon 3 May 2010 14:27 GMT

Hello,

I know it is difficult to establish how much a family spends on food monthly so I came up with a list of basic foods, which were not already covered by other posts and I would like to ask everybody to contribute with a range of prices:

- red pepper
- cauliflower
- eggplant
- potatoes
- tomatoes
- onion
- carrots
- zucchini
- cucumbers
- beans
- peas
- pasta
- apples
- pears
- grapes
- peaches
- bananas

of course you canadd any forgotten produces

Wow... I didn't know there were so many sorts of beans. I lie, I know there are a lot of types, but let's say Black Eyed.
I know that vegetables and fruits go by season, that's why I mentioned a range, just to make an ideea how much a family of two might spend monthly on food.

Thanks Kay, you broke the ice. :D

If you sign up on one of the big supermarkets websites, you can see all the prices for groceries, fresh produce, wine, beer, meat - the lot basically.

For those who have subscribed to the recommended suppliers forum, a list of the websites is on the following - the 3rd supermarket on the list gives loads of prices - the 2nd one has less prices, but you don't need to register to access the prices
