Aussie Woolworths shopper slammed for spending $724 amid cost of living crisis – but not everyone has a problem with it
A Woolworths customer has been slammed for ‘flaunting’ her extravagant supermarket groceries.
Em Lucinfrom Melbourne, recently spent $724 at his local Woolies after moving to a new home.
THE clothing brand owner shared his towering receipt and went through most of the items, with the majority of the price going up due to the purchase of pantry staples, kitchen essentials, and utensils.
Em also researched several branded items like Masterfoods sauces and milk cartons from Paul’s.
She also revealed that she ‘forgot’ to scan her Woolworths Rewards card and the main reason she had to start from scratch was because she was previously living at home and couldn’t bring anything into her new home.

Other items she purchased include a wide variety of snacks, confectionary purchases, three types of cooking oil, cleaning supplies, and more.
“We just moved and if you’re moving too, just know that shit is expensive,” she said.
Em was immediately criticized for bragging that she had spent “more than most Australians earned in a week”.
“Imagine having such disposable income that you can spend $730 like it’s nothing, that’s so much!” a woman wrote. “I’m living paycheck to paycheck right now.”
“You just spent my weekly salary. . . shopping at Aldi!’ says another.
“We’re in a different tax bracket,” one man noted.
Others criticized her for not looking for the best price and “wasting” money on brand purchases.
“Groceries are certainly expensive, but a big part of your problem here is buying anything branded,” one low-cost shopper wrote.
“60% of this could have been purchased from op stores, Kmart, The Reject Shop or on sale,” another said.
“You could have saved at least $100 if you had preferred store brand over brand,” one man wrote.
While others defended Em’s shop.
“Why is everyone always judging the amount spent? Why do people always judge? we asked. “Like sis knew she could afford it, otherwise she wouldn’t have done it.”
“When I moved it was right after COVID and it cost us $1,200!” a woman shared.
“Starting from scratch is so expensive but it’s so worth it!” says another.
