You could buy a loaf of bread for that price or less!

After last month budget I have to make major drastic changes on my spending.

I have discovered another cream crackers that cost 38p.  YES,  yes you heard me right.

And it taste just as good.

 lt's called 'Snacky Cracky' Cream Crackers 300g cost only 38p you can buy it from

 Lidle  Super market.  It taste like the real McCoy!   I want you to do a quick survey

close your eyes and get some one to give you a Jacob's Cream Cracker and Snacky Cracky

Cream Cracker in no particular order   It caught me out.

 

It's like that advert on TV  'I like this one but I also like this one'  But look at the price.

I trying to save every shilling and cents but it is impossible because the cost of living has gone up.

You could always buy Asda Smartprice crackers. Nobody is forcing you to buy Jacob's crackers Karen.

And what about the cost of Jacobs crackers?  By the sounds of it this could be a dealbreaker for her!

You think that's bad?  Bath Olivers are £2.19!

That's because only 12% of prescriptions are paid for, Karen.  We're paying for all those people who get them for free.

Yes that really drives me nuts  - why not lower the charge but make more people pay - even if it's at a reduced rate?

Compared to the actual cost of the drug being dispensed, the prescription charge is likely to be, in most cases, a small fraction of this.

I look at the prescription charge as a contribution towards the cost of the drug.  In other words, I am paying a little for something that costs a lot more.

On the other hand, paying over a pound for Jacobs cream crackers.....that just makes me fume.

cream crackers are a staple no person should be without.  It makes my angry that they hike the costs up.  Its the same with some biscuits.  why they dont hike up costs on fruit and veg, stuff that we can do without

Pudge - Most of our shops sell primarily daffodils  and leeks - but you can generally find Jacob's Cream Crackers with a bit of effort.
