Shopping Around the World

30 Jul

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:

  •  Toilet PaperAt the Hotel Thompson, we prefer Charmin Ultra soft.  That’s one thing we don’t skimp on… something about dad’s delicate hindquarters – snorts.  They come 9 rolls to a package and it costs $6.50 package.
  • Regular package of ground beef – We buy the store brand of ground chuck that usually sells for $2.99 a pound.  This is for a small package that we use for burgers and chili.  The package costs around $4.50-$5.00 for what we get.
  • Store bought pizza.  Daddy ❤ pizza.  He can eat it ALL OF THE TIME.  For store bought pizza, we get Tortinos pizzas.  Mom stocks up on them when they are on sale for $1.00 each.  They are just enough for one person.
  • Package of hot dogsWe buy Hebrew National hot dogs here at the Hotel Thompson for obvious reasons – snort snort.  They run $3.50 a pack on sale.  Off sale – $4.99 pack.
  • Package of bacon – Daddy said we had to include this one – rolls piggy eyes.  When mom/dad cook it here, they get Smithfield thick cut which runs $4.99 a pack!  That’s highway robbery – well so says daddy – snorts.


If you have some items that you want to get on the list, email me at

Hope you had fun!!

    pretty comparable to here. Ali loves to unroll the toilet paper and make a mess all over the rug with it. 😛

      Snorts. That’s one of the reasons why our bathroom door stays shut. Those cats here at the Hotel Thompson are forever playing with the TP. Of course, a certain piggy does too but I blame the purr things – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Our prices here in South Africa are pretty similar. The only thing we don’t really have are your regular sales and mark downs.

    Thanks for another fun shopping experience Bacon!!

      I agree our prices seem a little bit better here. The price of bacon is out of this world! It’s so very high for almost any kind. I’m kind of glad about that – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    We are noticing a trend reading everyone’s posts today – we all LOVE our Charmin Ultra Soft – maybe we all have sore butts from sitting to long while we long and need a little softness 🙂 🙂

      Snorts. Charmin is good stuff. Mommy got a 12 roll pack FREE but it was a store name this past weekend. Daddy has complained about it Snorts – he says his butt is too delicate for that sandpaper – silly daddy! XOXO – Bacon

    My dearest friend Bacon, I just want you to know that in our shopping spree, the per-unit cost of bacon was second only to toilet paper. I think that speaks volume about just exactly how precious you are. 🙂 Here’s a link to our shopping post: Cannot wait to visit all the other shoppers in this month’s Shopping Around the World adventure!

      Snorts. Thank you so very much beautiful for participating this month. It’s always neat to see these prices. And thank you my sweet friend for calling me precious – aaww – hogs and snout kisses. XOXO – Bacon

    Our mark downs are a big fat cheat over here. They always put the prices up and mark them down to the original price. Grrrr it makes us mad. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Hi Bacon, we are new visitors to your blog and I like the subject. Mom doesn’t use charmin….something about plugging up the toilet. Pizza for $1…never on sale for so little here. On sale for $3.99. I enjoyed the prices.

      aaww thank you my new friends! These little pizzas are Tortino’s. They are not bad. Daddy likes them. They seem to be enough for one person – are great to fix several of them while having a party to watch football. They also come in different flavors. Mom usually stocks up on them for quicky dinner ideas. XOXO – Bacon

      Ours is good and it’s what dad prefers but gulp it’s P.I.G. Snorts and squeals – too funny. Daddy says he really likes his bacon. He does try not to eat it in front of me. And that’s a good thing – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

This is so much fun, Bacon and now we have to compare our prices with you all. *whispers* I won’t tell Grandpa about your Smithfield, it would make his mouth water 😀 Pawkisses for a Lovely Day 🙂
