How much everything cost in your country.

9 replies • Last post

Such a thread i decided to create Tongue
Interesting to see, how much regular things you buy cost in your country. Also kindly post average earning per month for people in your country. I show example and start.
Milk 1L = 0.8-1$
Cheese 1KG=6-8$
Pig meat 1KG(how on english i do not know) - good meat(for stakes)- 15-20$
Chickent meat 1KG - 6-8$
Cigarettes Pall mall - 1$ per pack(20 cigs), winston 1.4$ per 20 cigs pack. Most expensive - 2usd.
Vodka 0.5L starting from 5$
Whiskey, jack daniels 1L - 34$, Jim beam - 35$, chipest one - 12$ for 0.5L
Beer. Depending on value. 0.5 cans - 1.2$. 2L bottle cost 2-3$.
Average earning in capital is about 600-800$ per month(in Minsk living 20% of citizens). Other cities is much lower, my mom earning 220$ per month.
Would be nice to see and compare to others!

I live in the USA, but stuff here really varies in price by region. In Michigan where I live, prices look like this:

Milk 1L = $0.78
Cheese 1kg= $11.21
Pork=
Chicken= $8.28/kg
Cigarettes are about $5-7/pack
A pint of Vodka can be had for about $5 if you are going for bottom shelf hairspray stuff
A liter of Jack Daniels is $25 here, but you can score bottom shelf stuff for $8-10
Beer ranges. A 30 pack of Pabst crap can be had for about $15 with tax and deposit included

Post tax salaries on average in the Detroit area are $3136.38 per month. There are a lot of people who earn less though.

I got my numbers from Numbeo, which you can check out in full here.

Great idea belaff. I am actually surprised at the prices you quoted, some of them are higher than I would have thought.

Here are my prices in Australian dollars. Bear in mind AUD $1 is currently worth USD $0.83 but they have been around equal for the past 2 years or so, so I'm not going to bother converting. I used a couple of online supermarket sites to check. BTW pig meat is called Pork. Assuming you meant that and not bacon.

Milk 3L = $3. Supermarkets sell this cheap to get you to shop there, but they all put it right down the back so you have to walk past all the other stuff to get it.
Cheese 1KG = $8 - $13
Pork 1KG = $26
Chickent meat 1KG - $8+, depends on what you get i.e. Breast, thigh, wing, drumsticks etc
Cigarettes - $20 - $25 per pack. This is why we have one of the lowest smoking rates in the world.
Vodka - $30 for 0.7L
Whiskey, jack daniels 0.7L - $48, Jim beam 1L $47
Beer. Depends - cheap horrible stuff like XXXX (pronounced four-X) costs $38 for a case of 30 cans, each can is 375ml I think. But you would be better off drinking your own urine! A good beer costs $4 or more per bottle, less by the case of course.

According to this info, the average yearly salary is $72,800 per year, but the median is much lower at $57,400. Median is the middle value, with half of people above it and half below and isn't distorted like the average by people who are super rich. So the median monthly income is $4783.

So at first glance you can buy more stuff with the amount you earn here, but that ignores the cost of rent or mortgages which are really high.

eg.
2 bedroom apartment in Pyrmont, nice area close to the centre of Sydney: $650-$900 per week rent.
Run-down 3 bedroom semi in the inner city that needs fixing up - $1m+ to buy (people are stupidly obsessed with property here)

LOOL
I wanted to write taht its almost the same here but then read Ed;s and cannot believe my eyes.

milk 0.7€ so 1$? ffs. converting these amounts lol
cheese 6-9$/kg
pork cca .7$
chicken 4-5$
cigarettes 2,80-3,50€ so i think 4-5$
vodka starts from 4$
whisky 20-30$
beer almost never less than 1$/can but ISIC (google if you dont know) can be applied in few bars here to ger 0,5l fresh beer for 0.3$ lol
earning almost like you say belaff, average could be under 1000$ but almost everyone who I told that started laughing, the common salary in a fabric is 370-420€ = 500-600$?

and I am also very surprised but rather by Ed's numbers (cigarettes ?!?! i consider moving there, probably will stop then lol )

4000$ is salary of our president I think (no irony, and counting also all his bonuses and other dunnoforwhat incomes in that number)

It is becoming socially unacceptable to smoke here. Cigarettes have massive tax applied to them and the tax goes up every few years as the number of smokers goes down. It is illegal to smoke indoors in any public place, bar, or restaurant etc. All cigarettes must be sold in plain packages that all look identical, so there is no branding, and they all have disgusting pictures of people that are almost dead or rotting eyeballs, brain tumours and stuff on them. Do a google image search for "pictures on australian cigarette packages" if you dare! Wink

That is aboslutely great and unbelievable manners from the government for me, as here - the pack costs 5$ its low for you but actually the production cost could be maybe 0,1$ ? in fact, and the remaining is 95% also the tax, but not that high as there at australia - and the pictures need no comment, that is great! i lost words now lol

Honestly I am thinking about, how would it be to move to australia in later future, but - this one made me almost sure about it lol

I love how you call bad whiskey "rock gut". I have never heard that before so I had to look it up. I wasn't even sure if it was a badly named brand or something.

Looks like prices for the most food are almost the same...While earnings are totally different Sad
But i guess there is other stuff which cost much more higher in Usa and Australia i guess, like medicine and other stuff.
Thanks for replies guys, waiting to see even more!
