Shop Watcher – Food Prices March 2013

carrotsWE ARE conducting a very simple Food Prices exercise during 2013. Each month we will be following the prices of four staple value-range foods at the local Co-op Store on Hull Road, Hedon and following the price increases (if any) during the year.

In this continuing year of austerity, shopping carefully has become essential – particularly for those families on a tight budget.

We will be following the prices of milk, butter, bread and carrots.

Item Price March 2013 Change from last month Change since Jan 2013
Milk – Co-op 1 pint  £0.50    
Margarine – I can’t believe it’s not butter (500g)  £1.32    +0.32
Bread – Co-op Wholemeal (800g)  £0.89    
Carrots – Co-op (500g)  £0.50  -0.50  *-0.50
Totals  £3.21
 -0.50  -0.18

Carrots this month for a 500g bag cost £0.50 and did not appear to be on offer. *Note, we included the price of carrots in January as £1, although in actual fact we bought them on that occasion for the temporary offer price of £0.50.

We will chart the rising and falling price of Co-op carrots during the course of this year.
