The Monday Farmers Market | Sardinia, Italy

The Daily Groceries | Sardinia, Italy

At the beginning of June, I wrote a post about the cost of living in Sardinia, Italy where I have listed the cost of internet, electricity, gas, water, eating out and cell phone bills.

This morning I did a little shopping and by little, I mean very little, just the necessities to get though the next few days plus a few cleaning products.

A grand total of €37,08 or $45.95 Canadian dollars.

The most expensive items on my list:

4 Yogurt €2,98 and freshly made hamburgers – €2,46.

The cheapest items:

Canned chickpeas and canned lentils – €0,55.

I think it’s rather expensive but that comes with island life.
