My pennies worth (ahem)...
I'm sure if you looked hard you can find some good deals around in Oz!?
We're not moving because of cheap food/clothes, but for an adventure / change in life / the sun! :)
Problem is a lot of the 'deals are on food stuff like crisps, choc, fast food and they wonder why our nation is getting fatter!??
When people are on limited budgets because they have no job or low income then the shops have to accomodate accordingly, that said although 'cheap' some still need it to be cheaper! All relative I think.
Weather forecast - rain & snow :(
