Shopping around the world – 5

Looking for workers

 Hi (furry)furriends,


Close your eyes and Listen...

Close your eyes…

and be very quiet…

No noises anymore...

do you hear something….?

Nothing to see..

Me neither…

Time for shopping

Well, the workers have finally left..

untill tomorrow…

so we finally can do some

Shopping for my furriends

Bacon and Fozziemum

Direction to the shop


this must be the good direction to the shop…

YEP..and these are the Prices of the Netherlands:

APPLES: 1.5 kg, that’s about 8 Granny Smiths for Euro 3,49. We also like Pink Lady’s, but since they’re so expensive, Euro 2,99 for four apples, we only buy them when they are on sale 🙂

StrawberriesThese are very expensive in the Netherlands. 500 grams cost now Euro 3,49 and when they’re on sale you have two for the same price. You can buy them a little cheaper here too, but then they are really small..almost like currants, but then a little bigger…. 😉 So no strawberries in Granny’s bag, when they’re not on sale 😀

Carrots: a bunch of carrots cost Euro 0,99, so we eat a lot of carrots….and still need glasses 😀

Green Beans: 500 grams cost Euro 0,99. When they’re on sale, they cost half price.

Lettuce: we eat lettuce daily. Granny tried to plant it in her kitchen garden, but since the froggies live there too and the snails also eating of it..all….she has to buy it again. A head cost Euro 0,69. We eat it daily and all kind of sorts. Ruccola is one of her favorites, that cost Euro 1,29 for 75 grams.

Random fruit of your choice: raspberries. We love raspberries…but they are so expensive 😦 Euro 2,69 for 150 grams…and never on sale 😦

Sometimes she buys them on the market for Euro 1,50, but then they are so mouldy that you can throw them away when you are home.

Random Vegetable of your choice: Oh, this is so difficult to chose. We’re eating vegetarian and chose the vegetables at the moment when Granny gets the YES feeling of a vegetable at that moment. She likes almost everything, but one of her favorites is pepper.  So we eat a lot of pepper during the week…. raw and stir-frying.

I'm finished shopping, have to eat now..

That was a lot of shopping,

All that shopping makes my belly  rumble..

so I have to fill it now…

so does Granny 😉

See you all later to compare the prices…

    Glad it got quiet so you could go shopping. Your prices are high. Jan just bought some raspberries on sale recently and had to throw them out because they turned moldy really fast. So she understands your mom’s pain on having to do so.

      The workers are still busy and we heared that it will be noisy till the end of this year…sigh… Granny says she has to inspect the fruit better next time, so they can’t fool her anymore 😀 Thank you for shopping with me today, JFF. Pawkisses for an Easy Sunday 🙂 ❤

    Quiet, I think that’s a forest sprite in the garden…oh, it’s beauty Binky!
    Head of Lettuce and local green beans (LB) cost close to $2.00 US that this week in coastal TX. Apples range from $1.99 to $2.98 depending on type. I love Gala, but Honey Crisp from the NW states are cheaper right now. But must have some sort of apple each day.
    PAw waves!

      *big smile* I knew when I saw you come by that you’d make my weekend, Philmouse 🙂
      *serious look* I think that’s expensive, Philmouse, but the apples are quite the same. Granny needs an apple a day too, she says she needs the B-vitamines to keep her calm. Thanks for shopping with me today. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend and one Extra for RC Cat and Molly..each 😉 ❤

    Have a great day ahead. With love,

    Have fun tucking into your veggies! Shame about the strawberries but maybe they’ll be on sale soon and you can treat yourselves.

      The strawberries won’t get any cheaper now, Draliman, only more expensive, because it’s not the season anymore…but we can always plant it ourselves and buy the Sun, just to make sure that we have some next year 😉 Thanks for shopping with us today. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂

    It’s cheaper than in Switzerland ! But it’s hard to compare when we don’t know the average individual income in the country for exemple, or the amount of the taxes… Purrs

      Yes, it is, Zorro and Pixie, there are many other aspects involved, but it is fun to do this shopping anyway 🙂 Thanks for shopping with us today. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 ❤

    What are you doing in the bush when you could help do grocery shopping or bath the piggy. Hope you save some money in shopping.

      I have to know for sure that the workmen are out of sight, Seeker, before I went to the grocery. I bought that piggy on my way back 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Thursday 🙂 ❤

    Yep raspberries here too are stupidly expensive as are blueberries..and also go mouldy really quickly! I am growing blueberries and last year I got three bwahaaah so let’s see what summer the piggie having a bath 🙂 ad thanks for shopping with us again Little Binky..glad the workmen have gone too! hugs and loves Fozziemum xx

      Good morning, Fozziemum…well, it’s morning here 😉 The workers started working at 7 AM and today they just made the loudest noise ever….but when they’re gone, you can here a penny drop 😀 Granny says that’s a good idea to grow your own blueberries and raspberries and she is looking for a kind that grows without sun. You know we don’t have so much sun in this country, at least not enough for blueberrie blues. I hope you have a lot more blueberries this year, Fozziemum, at least double… Pawkisses for a Happy Thursday 🙂 ❤

        Oh poo to the workers Little Binky and good’s night here now 🙂 …the blueberries were tricky they need a lot of acidic pine needles and some other goodies 🙂 but already it has some flowers!! very is a shame about not enough sun..maybe Granny could make a mini hothouse with some clear plastic and pickets..i also hope I have a least double..then I might get a taste of them hahahaha 🙂 loves Fozziemum xx ❤ ❤

    Hard to compare prices when our rand is such a weak currency…


You can leave some purrs if you want...😸
