Shopping Around the World

25 Jun

My friend Fozzie and I have scheduled a group posting today of Shopping Around the World.   We thought it would be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.Here are our prices for the following from our area – Georgia USA:

 

  • Price of cable services for one month – what do you get for that price?  Right now we pay right around $40.00 a month for cable services.  This includes channels such as local, SyFy, Food Network, multiple Cartoon channels – yay me! – Investigative Discovery, Encore movie channels.  In all, I think there is 250 channels.  And we have On Demand where we can go back and watch shows.  I ❤ this!  
  • A 12 ounce box (360 grams) of Cornflakes.  $3.29 – why are cereal prices so high? 
  • A 15 ounce package (432 grams) of Oreos or other cream filled cookies.  $3.99 but sometimes we can get them on sale for 2 packages for $5.00
  • A 7 ounce bag (225 grams) of Lay’s potato chips.  Lay’s are expensive 😦  And trust me, I do ❤ me some Lays. 7 ounce bags run around $2.00 or more a bag.  
  • 1 pound of real butter.  $4.00 :0  
  • A 6 ounce can of peanuts.  Mom buys the Kroger brand for $2.19 a can

Thanks so much to my friends Reilly and Denny for suggesting these items this month.

If you have some items that you want to get on the list, email me at baconthompson@gmail.com

Hope you had fun!!

    Our list is up too: http://wallaceandsamuel.wordpress.com/2014/06/25/shopping-around-the-world-2/
    Our prices aren’t too far off from yours and our cable provision is very similar – we forgot to add that we also have “on demand” here.
    Thanks for another PAWSOME shopping list, we’re looking forward to July’s list!

        Mom says On Demand is very useful especially for those times she forgets to PVR a favourite show.

    That is a good price for cable. We were paying over $160 for cable and internet bundle and we didn’t have any premium channels. I don’t have cable anymore. lol

     
    • PigLove

      06/25/2014 at 8:39 am

      Snorts – they keep calling wanting mom to ‘bundle’ the prices for everything saying it will be cheaper. Not so much she keeps telling them. We pay $40 for cable; $15 for internet and $40 for telephone at home. Anyone want to beat all of that for $95 – taxes included? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Hi Bacon it is, I, Madi coming by to say hi..OMCs you live in Georgia…we are nearly neighbors…I’m just up the road in North Carolina. Mom loves her Cheerios but about a year ago started buying Harris Teeter brand they are about 1/2 the price and Mom thinks they are a tad crunchier than the real Cheerios
    Hugs madi your bfff

      06/25/2014 at 9:54 am

      Hey my new friend!! Hogs and snout kisses. Thanks for hitting me up – we are *almost* neighbors!! Squeals of delight. I am a Cheerio fan from birth – snorts – what’s not to love right? We haven’t had to buy them for sometime. We actually got a bunch of free coupons because a certain piggy wrote them and sent them a video of how much he enjoys them – looks around innocently – snorts. But I’ll have to remind mommy about Harris Teeter – we forget about them! Thanks so much for reminding us. Great to hear from you – XOXO – Bacon

    I’ve been looking around at all the blogs and cereal does seem to be way more expensive in the US.

     
    • PigLove

      06/25/2014 at 11:24 am

      Yes it does my friend. We have to do something about that. I eat Cheerios every morning for breakfast with my piggy chow. XOXO – Bacon

    Price of cable services for one month – what do you get for that price? They just raised mine.
    Bundle price is $160 includes expanded basic and HBO/Showtime. $85.65 cable, $33.54 internet,
    $19.99 phone and extra fees and charges. LOL. And nothing to watch. ROFL.
    A 12 ounce box (360 grams) of Cornflakes. Don’t buy this either-think about $4 name brand
    & $2.99 store brand
    A 15 ounce package (432 grams) of Oreos or other cream filled cookies. $3.99 or on sale 2 for $5
    A 7 ounce bag (225 grams) of Lay’s potato chips. $3.99 sometimes 2 for $5
    1 pound of real butter. $3.99 on sale $2.50
    A 6 ounce can of peanuts. Don’t buy-no idea. Most likely around $5

      Awesome! Mommy was complaining about cable prices. She won’t do that again :0 snorts. We get extended channels, encore channel, On Demand – no movie channels like HBO or anything like that. Our internet is $15 and phone is $40 – they are together and cable is separate. XOXO – Bacon
