Shopping Around the World

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!!
