Grocery Prices

With the price of groceries requiring a small mortgage these days, we at Critic decided it’d be a good idea to compare prices of the big three supermarkets and see where you can get the best bang for your buck.

Countdown= $89.80

New World= $84.53

Pak N Save= $77.63 

Few top tips for your weekly shop.

Shop seasonal—look out for what vegetables are really cheap at the markets and base your meals around that. 

Take a list to the supermarket and be sure to stick to it!

Don't go to the supermarket hungry! You'll only find yourself buying easy treats. 

Frozen vegetables are a nutritious and cheap alternatives to fresh veges that are out of season or too expensive. Fresh spinach can be very expensive, but you can find frozen spinach in the chiller for much cheaper.
