Shopping Around the World – Mark Your Calendars

04 Aug

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World in July.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices around the world!

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April.  This has become a huge hit and we all want to know if we are paying more or less than everyone else – snorts.  We are going to do it again this month on Wednesday, August 27.

Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.  It should be interesting to see the differences between.  Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.  This month we are focusing on items that we *have* to have in our lives.

Items to price this month:

  • Water.  Let’s shoot for a price on a 24 pack of water.  This is something that we use every day and can’t live without.  Some people drink it straight from the faucet while others of us buy bottles.  What is the price of a 24 pack of water in your area and what brand?
  • Bath Soap.  Something ‘most’ of us use when we shower – or I hope so anyway snorts. What brand do you get, how many boxes together and how much.  I say how many boxes because I know sometimes they are sold in packages of 1 or 2 – sometimes more.
  • Deodorant.  This is something that has blown mom’s mind lately – the price of deodorant – WOW!  Again, this is something that most of us use every day or should.  Tell us what brand you get and how much.
  • Laundry Detergent.  Another product that is important in our lives while washing our clothes.  What kind do you buy, the price and size.
  • Random Item.  This is something that we are going to start incorporating every month.  This is your choice.  List a random item from your area, what it is and the price.  ALL YOUR CHOICE.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars Wednesday, August 27, 2014!

Thank you very much for your ideas for the monthly listing. If you have any more suggestions to be added to my on-going list, please send them to me at

    I missed this last month, but I have an awesome picture from Target from this weekend and their sale prices on toilet paper (I was bored): $9.99 for 8 fl. oz.

    No wonder those Charmin bears have trouble cleaning up after themselves.

      Sure thing my friends. When you do your post and you are typing it out in a post, you will type out my blog to say where it is coming from.
      (1) the day of my posting, go to my blog and bring up the shopping blog.
      (2) highlight my address for that blog. (you know where you type to go to a site on the top right click and copy)
      (3) go to your blog, create new post and mention my post somewhere in your blog.
      (4) Where you mentioned my name, highlight my name and click on the paper clip. The paper clip thingy will say insert/edit link.
      (5) When that comes up type in my address – paste my url address.
      (6) Click on the add link button. My name will then be highlighted.
      When you preview the post, you should be able to click on my name and that will take you to my blog. Got it? Play with it and see what you can do. XOXO – Bacon

    Ooh, what a good selection! Laundry Detergent is important, yes, but very expensive here so the hoomans only get it when it is on offer and stock up well, heh!
