After the runaway success of hot-beverage-of-choice-drinkability-race, I have a new idea for you.
The DiS Regional Pricing Challenge!
Inspired by the retail price thread, we post a small (but perfectly formed) shopping list of cupboard staples and each DiSer has to buy them and post the prices. Let’s see who’s paying through the nose and who’s onto a winner.
The stuff we buy could then be donated to your local foodbank if you don’t need it.
I think it’s a terrific idea, friend! I’d suggest that it probably should be donated to a foodbank and that we should consult with people who aren’t idiots to ensure the items on the list will be useful and needed to said foodbanks.
After that shambles of the “go round london and buy these 9 things” task, my mum and I always wonder just how easy it would be to get all those things in our nearest town, and how long/much it would take. Dunno why they make it so hard on (heh) on themselves.
bags of sugar
Toiletries / sanitary products
Most foodbanks have shedloads of baked beans, soup and pasta, so not those
EDIT: I’ve also just found this list, which is from our “Reverse Advent Calendar” idea - buy an item every day in November and donate to the Foodbank at the beginning of December. But for the purposes of this thread, just use items from this list for the REGIONAL VARIATION SHOPPING CHALLENGE!
