A BUCK’S WORTH: Angela Frieswyk, a Tauranga nutritionist, is concerned that supermarkets selling white bread for $1 will encourage people to eat too much of it.
An offer of cheap, white bread has been welcomed by a budget advisory service, but a Bay nutritionist says it is an unhealthy food option.
According to the Reserve Bank, we’re paying an annual $671 million in credit card interest, roughly $200 for every adult New Zealander.
A Bay couple lost their home after putting $54,000 on credit cards for renovations.
The anecdote has been revealed by a budget adviser as more Bay people seek help to manage their money.
