This family is parked up right now with a car full of groceries for any family in need right now, they have taken some of the proceeds made so far from the recipe book they are selling 'Feed a Family of 6 for Under $20' and have bought 12 family lots of groceries for anyone in need. They've been there they know what it's like.

Too bad that when they approached Countdown to do this with them, Countdown took their idea and now calls it "Feed four for under $15"

Yet another reason why I hate Countdown!

And hey - if a family NEEDS some help with groceries, and they're not the kind to spend all their money on the pokies or booze, then if you can, help them out!  I've lived on ketchup sandwiches before (couldn't now, it would kill me) or two minute noodles for a week because of money issues - and I wish someone had been there to help out - so if I can, I try to be the one to lend a hand.

Speaking of such, if my garden is half as productive as I'm hoping, then I'll have plenty of excess for friends, family and likely the local Buddhist monastery up the road   I'd rather grow too much than too little to share.

Ours was a ghost town for a while, looks like people are going back but still doesn't look as busy as it used to.  I'm happy though, Countdown shoppers are inconsiderate morons like PnS shoppers so it was a pain to get around NW for a while with them standing around blocking the aisles.  Countdown was doing a Grab Me $15 for a $30 voucher the other day too which seemed desperate to get customers back to me.

The last time the general public tried the boycott thing they f**ked it up too, it was the "don't buy petrol" after the petrol companies couldn't hide the fact they were fixing the pricing, but it needed to be targeted at one particular station not just willy nilly

I'm more than happy to get my veg from the farmers markets, or my garden
I get my beef and lamb from farms just down the road
I get my milk from a nearby farm
I make a few butters and cheeses...

Sorry - why do we need Countdown anyway?

Actually I shouted my two older kids a V each for an Easter treat because the over sized ones were two for $5

Ok - I'll concede chocolate - I can get the sugar free stuff there

But those energy drinks would land me in hospital within half an hour...     So I think I'll survive without them...
