A TikToker has claimed that people ‘can’t live any more’ after sharing a view of his $100 shop.

And spoiler alert - it's really not a lot.

Now, I know it can be pretty unrealistic to think that seeing a bargain could take us up to Heaven, but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.

Everyone loves a deal, right?

As we’ve all been struggling recently with money and tightening those belts as snacks seem to be inching in prices every other day, it’s great to see where we can cut down.

But when does cutting down the price equate to halving your overall shop?

TikToker Carenstino decided to show his followers exactly how hard the crisis has got by showing what $100 worth of groceries works out as for him.

He captioned the clip: “I’m literally shaking from shock… something needs to change.”

After shopping for ‘very basic’ items, he says: “This is getting out of hand. It’s to a point where people can’t live.”

Carenstino panned over to his his $100 grocery shop, which looked like a very tiny pile.

“You’re telling me this is $100? This isn’t even barely anything to feed me for a couple of days," he adds.

He shows exactly what he got for all that money.

A small pack of chicken, a dozen eggs, rice, juices, body wash, deodorant, English muffins, stationery and canned energy drinks.

“$100 for this? Excuse me?” he says in utter disbelief.

If you think about what 100 dollars can bring to you, there’s no way you’d think it would be so little.

Obviously, depending on where you shop it can vary but for less than an armful of items? That’s feels illegal.

TikTok users were equally as shocked as him, commenting how much they spend on average.

One person wrote: “I used to make family dinner 6 years ago for $40. The same exact dinner cost $90 now.”

Another added: “Grocery prices have become absurdly high.”

And one user even claimed: “We’ve literally hit the point where it’s now cheaper to eat out.”

Others also recommended shopping at Aldi or Trader Joe’s to save some cash.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index previously showed that grocery prices were 5.8 percent more expensive in May than they were a year ago, but we’re still not where we should be at 3.8 in October.

How long will it be until we see the return of the huge and cheap food hauls?
