So sorry Traci -it hasnt worked out for you.
Have you got your permanent visa yet? Ever thought of giving somewhere else in oz a try or is the pull of the Trent too strong for you both.
I am sure I will get into the swing of things soon! Thank you
Michelle, Phil, Nathan, and Libby. PR175 arrived Oct 2009
Yep,Coles just squeeze every cent out of us,even sneakily lowering the weight of chocolate ever so slightly,and ever so gradually,because they assume we are all thicko's and wont notice.They also do this with other products like bread,biscuits,cheese etc,but of course the price never goes down,in fact the reverse is true.Never seen any real great bargains there,only crap like buy 4 get one half price,or was $15.99 but now only $15.81,hurry and save!Like i am going to be doing cartwheels down the road whistling with my mega savings(Yeah,all right) I wouldn't go home though,just because my least favourite shop has yet again got me riled,better to go look for other shops,of which there are plenty,and also eating out is good value here.Nah,it's better here for me at the moment.Best of luck for the future,Sue.
I'm not sure of your visa status but assuming you are free to move around might I suggest having a look at Perth and or Brisbane before you go? Even if only for a holiday. Some other famillies have left Adelaide after finding it wasn't for them and moved to these other areas and found what they were looking for there.
Either way though, I think it takes courage to make the kind of decision you have and I wish you the best of luck
I am gutted that the rise in food prices 12 months ago was put down to the price of fuel over $1.50 a litre, yet the prices remain hig and fuel has dropped for a considerable length of time.
You have to shop around, and you have to look at the specials if you want to save money, and you can save a lot on a weekly shop
Seriously, good luck with the move..............
speaking on a shopping level, i recon you get what you pay for.............the quality of goods here is better in general than back in the motherland, but maybe im lucky with my greengrocer, butcher etc.
I miss the bargains, of course i do, but i grow some fruit and veg, and what i find is a great grocer and butcher make the world of difference.
Send back some decent sausage rolls, and the occassional asda cornish pasty.................yum!!
Your shopping might be cheaper back here but get ready for all the tax hikes and the vat increase as we are in deep sh1t over here with all the borrowing this goverment is doing. I would gladly live in a tent in Oz for the rest of my life than be here in the UK as things are taking a serious turn for the worst. We have billions of debt to get rid of and we the joe public are going to have to pay it off. Oh by the way the bankers (rhymes with *ankers) have still had there bonus payments! Sorry for the waffle but i'm just sick of being the minority in this country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry to hear this Traci .
But some of those items are expensive for here.Fray Bentos tinned pies ??
Posh ice cream.
Looks like best bacon.
Beef Jerky - see that as a treat.
Comparing back to the UK does not help either I'm afraid,it can really confuse you.
I notice the "living in the culture less void of South Australia" comment in your location.
Have I been asleep for too long or something?Lots of culture here ,you just have to make an effort to go and find it.
