The cost of living is continuing to hit us where it hurts, this time at our beloved Bunnings sausage sizzle.
From Saturday July 23, the cost of an iconic Saturday snag will rise by $1 for the first time in 15 years.
Realising the #Bunnings sausage sizzle is the best Australian social barometer in existence— Juana Del Rey (@neenish_tart) July 13, 2022
It means we'll be shelling out $3.50 for our beloved sausage instead of $2.50.
Onions will still be a free add-on, and drinks will stay at $1.50.

Bunnings have increased the prices of their snags. Unless you find a cheaper one, in which case they'll beat it by 10%.— adam rozenbachs (@arozenbachs) July 13, 2022
The hardware giants themselves have set the new prices.
Bunnings Chief Executive Michael Schneider says the price had to rise to help community groups dealing with rising costs, which has caused a decline in the funds they're able to raise.
But the extra $1 will still go to the community group for their fundraising efforts, so we can't argue with that.
