My Big Shopping Experiment: Can I avoid supermarkets and chain stores?

with 3 comments

basket1A while ago I blogged about our reliance on supermarkets, and how we should be buying locally and supporting our local economies.

I am a local shopper, where I can be.  But like many others, I nip into the odd supermarket for essentials when pressed for time.  Yes…it really is convenient. 

However, shopping locally does more than just supporting your local economy and high street.  I won’t repeat my original blog post here – but click here if you want to read what I think on the matter.

Time therefore, for me to practice what I preach, and so for the next week I am going to see if I am able to purchase all that I need from local shops and market stalls and totally avoid supermarkets and chain-stores.

I will then record how much I spend here on this very blog and see if it is possible to live frugally without relying on buying from supermarkets.
