Shopping around the world

Well here we go again..Bacon and I and the dreaded shopping list….we all love the thrust and parry of shopping not…but one thing we DO love is the fun or surprise of sharing the prices from around the world..not the so called prices that we hear about on the tv or read about..but prices..YOU the shopper  who actually buys the goodies in your part of the part of the world pays…

So the list was:

Toilet paper

Regular packet of mince (ground meat)

Store bought Pizza Kind and price

Packet of Hotdogs Kind and price

And…gulp ..Bacon price and kind



So for TP I love this one…soft and cute with little lab pups on it 🙂

I know I kind of feel bad using it but …what can I say…Pkt of 6 rolls about $4.84 Aus

Regular Mince..

Regular Mince on average about $8.99  Aus per kilo it is more expensive for heart smart mine (which is leaner)

Store bought I confess I cannot eve remember the last time I bought a store bought pizza..and rarely even have pizza from a restaurant…so this one looked the best of a bad lot..and I know it must be god because it’s made my the same Dr who makes my glazes and gelatines 🙂

This one was $8.05 Aus for a 375gram this is one of my fave brands…and yes they are delish and they are as good as vegetarian because I am pretty sure they have no meat in them bwahaahha 🙂

These average out at $13.78  Aus a kilo …

And now for the uhmmm mmm ahhh Bacon this is my fave brand and also a local to town company..

This 125 gram packet is $5.60 Aus or $ 44.80 per kilo…


Now the conversions…well due to my eyes being  non compliant I will pop the conversions here but have not gone through each item..and if I have forgotten a country please forgive me…

One Aussie Dollar = SA RAND 9.962

= NZ DOLLAR 1.102






= EURO 0.6998



So that is the list for this month..i forgot the reminders again and promise to get a bit better sorted for next month..any ideas for the list for August just let Bacon and I  know and we can pop them in our world wide trolleys 🙂

  1. They actually make KIDS toilet paper? What’s with that? We don’t buy most of that stuff so it’s a bit difficult to work out, that’s why we didn’t do the shopping thing.

    Also, some of that stuff has a 10% GST added in, which other countries add on later.


    • Guys I love this TP..they have the puppy prints most likely for kids entertainment ..which is why I probably like it 🙂 it is hard too as like the pizzas and some other stuff I don’t buy them either 🙂 it s interesting when we see products that countries have that are the same as us…always fascinates me 🙂 xx

  9. There goes our dream to emigrate, Fuzziemum… It’s all furry expensive for our purse…but it was fun and that’s worth so much more 😀 Fozziemum, we don’t use our Dutch gilders anymore in the Netherlands. They changed it into Euro about 14 years ago and we’re all still unhappy that they have taken it away from us. That was the start of the inflation were we’re in now. Happy Pawkisses for a Lovely Day 🙂


    • Oh Little Binky..Easy also says the Euro began the rot…it is fun and I like that we all see each others products 🙂 have a beautiful day sweet one loves Fozziemum xxxx
