When Daniel was born we only used Pampers and paid about R120 per pack of nappies (jumbo pack). I remember thinking at the time jeez, that is a lot of money for nappies.
When the girls arrived we put them on Cuddlers during the day and Pampers at night as we had 3 kids in nappies and it was just way too expensive.
This means that I don’t often buy Pampers, but I have been watching the price go up and up and up. And they are clever. They will push the price up by about R20.00 per pack for a week and then have “a special” the following week at the same price as before.
So, the next time they just put the price back up to the higher price as consumers have been desensitized to the price.
It really pisses me off that THE SAME thing that was R120 almost 3 years ago is now R212 at Pick and Pay. What’s up with that??
