Shopping Around the World

24 Sep

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.This month we are focusing on items for the vegetarians – fruits and vegetables.  Special thanks to Corkscot for the suggestion this month.

.

Items priced this month – Prices in Georgia USA:

  • Apples – Mommy goes to Sam’s Warehouse to get a huge bag of Granny Smith (my favorites) for $4.99 a bag.  There’s about 15 HUGE apples in this bag.  Which is good because I get a 1/2 of sliced apple before bedtime every night 🙂  It’s my bedtime snack.
  • Strawberries – If we are lucky, our store puts 16 ounces packages of huge strawberries on sale for $2.50 a package.  During the peak season, we go the strawberry patch.  We can get a HUGE basket that we pick… and of course I sample… for $8.00
  • Carrots –  Mommy buys me the 16 ounce bag that are cut/peeled baby carrots.  I live off of these!  She gets them for $0.99 a bag – sometimes on sale she can get them two bags for $1.00 🙂
  • Green Beans – Fresh are so yummy!  We get them here in season for $0.99 a pound.
  • Lettuce – We have been buying lettuce for a while now for $0.99 a head.  Sometimes they are HUGE and well worth it and other times they are small and only makes a couple of meals for us.  That’s right I said ‘us’.  I get a salad for dinner every night with mom.
  • Random Fruit of your choice.  Seedless grapes.  Smacking my piggy lips now.  I ❤ it when mom pops them in the freezer and then gives them to me as a treat.  Piggy heaven!
  • Random Vegetable of your choice.  Corn on the Cob – can you say delicious!?  On sale, we can get three ears for $1.00.  This is a great deal.  She shucks them, wraps them in aluminum foil, sprays them with butter and throws them on the grill, in the oven or in the crock pot. My mouth is watering just thinking about how juicy they are!

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

Hope you had fun!!

    This one is a tricky one for us as fresh produce varies with the season and imports so sometimes they are cheap when there is a glut and expensive when shipped from abroad. Always interesting. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    you know we were reading that those little peeled baby carrots are actually washed in bleach to stop them from going slimy in the bag – since then we only buy big carrots that we peel ourselves.

    seedless grapes are the best!!! I’ve heard that through the grapevine hehehehe I agree for the lettuce, sometimes they are too big that you can’t put it in the bad and sometimes they are not more than a handfull… butt for the same price. maybe it’s the same as with the fabric softener, where you can buy a small bottle as “fabric softener concentrate”?

    Berry prices always make me sad. I remember having wild strawberries and blackberries in the woods around us when I was younger, probably the one thing I miss about living in such a rural area.
