Mrs Lloyd's receipt from 1988.We all know things are getting more expensive, but it can be hard to see by exactly how much.
But the stark increases in the cost of a trip to the supermarket have been revealed after a pensioner found a 30-year-old receipt from her first ever trip to the local Sainsbury’s in Wolverhampton.
Diana Lloyd, 73, heard her local store was moving and found the old receipt in the bottom of a dusty wardrobe.
"I have no idea really why I kept the receipt, I just always knew I had. And when I heard they were moving I thought I'd have a look for it,” Mrs Lloyd, from Wolverhampton, said.
“It’s like a snapshot in time. It's really fascinating . . . . I can’t believe the cheese was only 50p.”
The 1988 bill for 42 items came to just £17.16. Items included 10 fish fingers for just 89p, some Damson jam for 46p, a loaf of bread for 44p and a 1kg bag of potatoes for 35p.
Only one item - a jar of Nescafe coffee – was priced at over £1 and was sold to Mrs Lloyd for £1.49 on January 19, 1988.
Surprisingly, while most items had doubled in price and some had risen four-fold; one thing had actually become cheaper.
Whiskas chicken cat food cost 36p a tin in 1998 but 67p the last time it was sold in Sainsbury's.
However, overall the cost of the shopping would be easily more than twice as much now – rising from £17.16 in 1988 to around £50 now. There is one more thing to consider though, in 1988 the basic state pension was £39.50 a week, while today it's almost triple that at £113.10 - so buying the same items now uses up a lot less of your money.
If you have a current Sainsbury's receipt and any of your items are the same as those opposite you can see how prices have changed in three decades ! By the way this is shown just as an example and could easily have been any of the other supermarket.

Having respect for all living things and the avoidance of violence towards others. (Tell all the bad guys and politicians - too many to name).
'Cause and effect' - What you do in life will come back to bite you. (so very true).
The fussiness and stupidity of minor officials; petty bureaucracy, box ticking. (fab word applicable to so many jobs-worths and wannabe's these days!)
It has been reported that these days, Police recruits only receive two weeks formal training before being put out on the streets, where further training is 'on the job'. Most recruits know next to nothing at this stage. Poor us and poor them. too. (source BBC 'Thinking Allowed' on R4 - episode Law & Order).
This device is indispensable for any car. Have had one in the boot for a few years and it has got me out of trouble about four times. Also helped a very grateful friendly neighbour once. Silverline portable charger for about £32.00 from Amazon. Brilliant on those cold wet mornings when the car won't start!
