What can you buy with one gig in your country? (Around The Globe Discussion)


#1

Interesting topic, that I would like to hear different stories from sellers/buyers around the world. Where do you come from?What can be done with $5 in your country?

In Macedonia, you can go to a pub and drink 2-3 beers. You can have a “nice” dinner at a restaurant that is not too pricey. You can buy a few groceries for the day. But it’s not enough money, definitely to spend the day with.

Note: I live in the capitol city, so it’s a bit pricier than the other cities. Usually in the smaller cities you can do a lot more for $5.

UK - $4 = £3.20 ish, a large cappucinno in Starbucks, so not very much at all really.


#3

i come from Nigeria and i could buy a shirt with one gig


#4

Some cheap sandals, or a boxed lunch, or a huge bottle of coconut water, or four bus rides.

(Random maybe, but these are things I have actually bought)

Edit: I’m from Jamaica


#5

I could take the bus to the nearest town and back. I could get 5 quick coffees or a couple mini cakes in the town (village really) I live at. At where I’m from (I live in a different country now) I could go and happy a meal…
At McDonald’s :smiley: or go to the capital from my town.

I’m from Bangladesh. I can go out, have my launch at restaurant, take a bus and return home with a 1 liter Coca-Cola :innocent:


#7

The square root of Sweet FA outside of some cheaper drinks (non-alcoholic) and cheap food. Outside of that, idk, maybe some junk from a Chinese discount outlet store?

Greece has stupidly high taxes for stupid reasons, so those need to be added onto the pittance…


#9

Greece… I was in Thessaloniki two weeks ago, it’s really expensive. I feel you. : )


#10

Where are you from? You haven’t mentioned.


#11

Thanks for reply. I am from Bangladesh. And where are you from?


#12

4 lts of Coke.
A cheap bottle of rum or vodka.
A medium pizza with two or three toppings.
30 eggs.


#13

Pretty much the same as in my country. Except, we can buy less eggs as one egg costs about 0.30 or 0.40. :slight_smile:


#14

Greece is in an economical shit storm right now, hence things are more expensive.


#15

For the $4 from one gig: two small bottles of water. Or a couple of small hamburgers at McDonalds. A bottle of katsup and of mustard in the grocery store, or a half gallon of non organic milk. 12 non organic eggs.
1.5 gallons of gasoline (petrol).

I buy organic milk and eggs to avoid the chemicals and pharmaceuticals in those products and they cost twice as much as regular non organic ones.


#16

:us: ~ Shop at a Dollar Tree or something! They sell everything $1 makeup, nail polish, snacks, pet supplies, household stuff, decorations, birthday cards, and other cool shit. The cards & mylar balloons are pretty nice!


#17

out of curiosity @misscrystal , why organic? we are all going to die eventually.


#18

@miroslavglavic I have a sensitive system. I can’t choke down most eggs for instance.


#19

Yeah… I used to live in Columbus Ohio… also BigLots was cheap.


#20

regular bananas last about 15 days.
organic bananas - I tried them, they started going bad 24 hours, and by 3 days, they were mostly bad.


#21

This question was directed to Misscrystal but a lot of people prefer to buy organic here in the US since a lot of food items contain synthetic growth hormones and antibiotics which is not the standard in most European countries.

It’s just gross!
