I just thought y'all might be interested in seeing what we here in Oz see on a daily basis...
And Simply Australian is based in Rainier Washington!
Now remember... the clearance sale prices are 50% !
The one that got me, was the cornflour (cornstarch) on SALE for $2.50 - and the RRP was $4.49!
~~~Update / Edit / Making myself clear-er. (as if!) ~~~
I guess I was so busy getting this post posted last night, that I didn't make myself too clear.
Like I do that anyway, eh? I usually carry on like a headless chicken, but I think I was a little more "headless" than usual... More like a two-headed, headless chicken.
Here in Oz, we don't necessarily pay those prices.... those are the prices for imported goods, and what we're actually charged here, is far less.
Well, maybe not far less... but we can get it cheaper than that.
It's kind of like my beloved Crisco. IF I could find a cheaper, acceptable, alternative here, I would buy it in a heartbeat... but there isn't, so all I can do is dream.
My point was supposed to be... to pay that kind of price for cornflour/cornstarch just seems outrageous, because let's face it... cornstarch by any other name, is still cornstarch, isn't it?
But some of the other items at Simply Australian are reasonably priced... and they sure save me heaps of money when buying gifts for my son's family... To buy a t-shirt or boomerang for my grandsons... well, it's far cheaper to use Simply Australian, than it is to buy it here... and then take out a second mortgage just for the postage!
AND they get to sample the delights of Tim Tams and authentic Arnott's Chocolate Ripple Biscuits (cookies).
Because they're worth it !
Of course they are... they take after their Grummie!
More Sunday Funnies...!
