    I love honey and I am going to try and substitute it for sugar or sugar substitutes as it seems more natural and healthy somehow. also it was such a good buy at and I am going to give some to the folks.

    Yes. just under $19.00. With the sales I saved over 60 bucks overall. The chickens were only $.49 cents a lb, which is really good here actually.

    In Vancouver, your bill would have been a minimum $50 higher, even with coupons. We pay a lot more for food (and everything else) here than you.

    I costed it out for what it would have all been at the local Safeway or Giant in the DC area. That's what my figures were based upon. You did good if you got all of that for 90 bucks... better to be buying things to cook with than blowing money on ready foods. Our shopping lists don't look too different except I buy tons of fresh fruits and veggies and need bigger amounts because of my family.

    Good God! they are about 39 cents a lb here. Sometimes on sale as low as maybe 25 to 29 cents a lb. How much are they normally? There is no way in hell I would pay a buck and half for a banana!

    They are normally about the same as the US. The cyclone wiped out most of the crop and the protectionist Aussies won't import them so we have to suck it up until the plantations are re-planted and the next crop.

    Well that sucks! I wonder if a 'black market' for bananas will develop..maybe with 'banana runners' off the coasts and a 'banana' bred mafia!(no pun intended)

    Four, five-pound chickens here would be at least $35-$40. Or more. I shop for bargains, but we mostly eat organic, and prices still aren't that competitive.
