Grocery Choice: Canned

Not happy Jan.

The Grocery Choice project seems to be canned. Not happening.

This is something definitely as a young family with large grocery bills, only looking to expand than contract to be able to see and compare grocery pricing online - would be invaluable.

Well it seems it is valuable. Valuable to large supermarket chains - who take at least $500 of our familys' expenditure a month.

"Following a heated meeting in Canberra on Friday morning which was attended by Coles, Woolworths, Franklins, Aldi and Metcash executives, the minister for competition policy and consumer affairs, Craig Emerson, made the decision to scrap the grocery price monitoring website, just six days before its scheduled launch next Wednesday. Dr Emerson denied he had been bullied into the decision, which he said was his alone."

Disappointed. Annoyed. Let down.

Oh that would have been brilliant. Hopefully they'll change their minds.

I thought of you the other day. I saw a recipe for lasagna using stale bread as the pasta.... we should google it, and then you should make it! You can be the guinea pig. :P
