"Rand weakens, price increase imminent", this is a message I just received from a supplier. Discount offered until price increase
Wage increase single digit, how on earth do you survive with prices going up by the day.
You put petrol the price is over R 13, the price for bread and milk everyday 2 litre R ranges from R12 to R20 depending if I get 2 packets or a 2 litre bottle, bread R10.
I get the sh!ts with my wife because the food/grocer/cleaning bill has gone from R900 when I met her to almost R5000 if we had to buy the same stuff. We have managed to cut it down to around R3000 because we take the specials and shop at various places and just do without certain things.
It is scary to think how some people survive on the salaries they do.
