Throwback Thursday – Remembering what we could buy with R100

LETS look back in time at what R100 could buy in April 1991.

This isn’t meant to be discouraging, but rather to remind us to appreciate what we have while we’ve got it. Remember to make the most of what you have in the moment.

Eating out…


A whole freezer full of meat…




Oh my hat! Cheese was so cheap then…


Anyone for bacon…?

You could even paint your whole house…


Remember this famous quote by Teddy Roosevelt

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

We hope you enjoyed this glimpse back in time, and take it as a reminder to enjoy life now. Have hope and keep fighting! You have more than you think you have.
