This last year as Iv learned to coupon and save money I look back and wonder how I ever got by without them. I always think it cost so much for food,gas,kids stuff,clothes.But truthfully where we live Here in New Brunswick we dont have it that hard. Some people such as the people in Nunavut are starving themselves just so their children can eat. The cost of living there is so crazy one would wonder why these people stay,why dont they try to get the heck out of there.We need to think of a way to help these people. The pictures below Are from a facebook group Called Feeding my Family. They are the people of Nunavut sharing their story and hardships with the rest of canada, Something needs to be done And fast.
Here in Nb The most we would pay for juice like this would be $1.99 .Buying 5 of these in Nunavut would cost over
I CANT EVEN IMAGINE HOW THESE PEOPLE CAN AFFORD TO EAT!!!!! ALOT OF THEM CANT AND ARE FORCED TO GO WITHOUT.
We have the same Juice here in Nb. The highest it would cost here would be $2.19. A lot of sales go on also when you can get it for $1.00. These people need to have major price drops. Something has to be done.
These same Janes chicken here in Nb at the most non sale price would be $10.99. I only buy them when they are on sale. This should be against the law to have such high food prices.
I got 9 Bags of these for using coupons yesterday. They were on for $2.00 and I had a $2.00 Coupon. These people are paying over $7.00 for one bag. This is so unfair. And there is no couponing allowed in Nunavut.
Tim Hortons should be ashamed of himself.
I had this province on my mind today for some reason and decided to go check in on the group Feeding My Family. There has been some progress made over the last few years in some ways. Looks like some families are finding cheaper prices on food while others are still paying way over top dollar. Some products they are buying too much for are even rotted or have blue mold on them. Here are from Pictures taken from the group to show you what I mean.
$104.01 for one Turkey!!!!! But they dont want them hunting seals!!!

There are times that we northerner’s don’t use coupons. Here is a fine example why.
This pic I took last night after shopping. These coupons expired on the 31st of December 2013.
Look for these at Northmart..just bought it tonight….
Peppers (bag of 3): 4.98$
Green apples ( 3lbs): 4.45$
Red Delicious apples (3lbs): 3.89$
Those were my cheap picks of the week Enjoy
I get upset if I have to spend more than .50 on a box of pasta. I couldnt imagine paying $13.39 for a 900g box!
It wasnt until this mother got home and started coking this chicken that she realized it had blue spots on it
Beef Outside round oven roast: 2.5lb. $40.39 in Clyde River’s northern store
I didnt notice this at first but followers did. 60 some dollars in Tabacco products but they call claim to be straving. This is the one thing I think seems fishy but I guess some people there do have money to spend but not all have the money to waste.
