Happy Tuesday, dear readers! I need your help! I’m working on an ongoing piece about what we all pay for the things we have to buy, and I’m trying to get as wide a range of responses as I can. Would you be so kind as to tell me what you pay for the things after the cut, wherever you are in the world?
Don’t worry about doing any conversions, that’s the kind of math I’m good at, so I’ll happily take care of turning your currency/weights and measures converted over for our U.S. audience. I’ll try to switch the U.S. numbers over to other standards as well.
Fill me in in the comments, or if you’d prefer to be more discreet about where you are, drop me a PM. If you can take pictures of the actual price tags, that’s totally optional but would be nine kinds of fantastic. Drop me a PM if you have photos, and I’ll send you an email addy you can send them to.
1 gallon whole milk (not organic, soy, almond, etc. Just boring old cow’s milk in a jug)

1 loaf of sliced, white sandwich bread
1 dozen eggs (not free range or organic)
1 lb. bananas
1 lb of ground beef (ground chuck, if it’s available)
1 lb bag of dry beans (pinto if you can find them, for continuity)
1 lb bag of white rice
I’ve already put this question out to our writers and editors, but I want a bigger sample size. Because I love the shit out of data. Writers, if you haven’t sent in a list yet, there’s still time!
