“Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul – chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we’re the greatest hunters on earth!” Anne Tyler
Following on from my recent I is for Iceland post – and inspired by a wonderful blog My Sardinian Life / La Mia Vita Sarda – where Jennifer blogged this week about the Cost of Living in Sardinia and included receipts from her recent shopping trip to the supermarket. I thought this was a great idea, so I decided to join her and dug out a couple of receipts from recent shopping trips for you to have a look at.
We seem to have done a couple of big shops lately – household stuff always seems to all run out at the same time doesn’t it? – so we can show you a good range of basic items – with translations – so that you can get a good idea of how much things cost out here.
and here’s one from Lidl too:
Let me know if there’s another item not on here that you are interested in – and I’ll do my best to let you know how much it costs!
And we shall be sticking to our two preferred stores – Continente and Lidl – a survey this week in the Portugal News What Expats want has revealed that “Continente was the preferred brand among foreigners, with 23.69 percent opting to shop at Portugal’s largest supermarket brand, followed by 17.58 percent opting for Pingo Doce.
Apolónia (12.21 percent) have taken third place from Lidl (who slip to fifth with 7.57 percent). Iceland, with a single store in Portugal, has come from nowhere to occupy fourth spot (9.28 percent)”
That just means that Lidl’s will be even quieter! 🙂
