I am posting a receipt I got today at the local Rewe supermarket (click for bigger). Not because there is anything wrong with it, but because when we were looking to move to Germany we were curious about how much the cost of living would be. If there is anybody out there with a similar curiosity, then this might be of use. Also, it might be interesting if you are reading this in five years time to know how prices have changed.
The items are:
|1x pack of filter coffee 500g||
|1x bag of large potatoes 2.5kg||
|1.5 litre carton of organic low-fat milk||
|1x pack of grated emmental cheese 200g||
|1x loaf of wholegrain toast bread 500g||
|1x bag of organic 45% fat mozzarella 125g||
|1x bag of organic bread flour 1kg||
|1x carton of 3.8% fat organic natural yoghurt 500g||
|1x bottle of olive oil 750 ml||
|1x carton of six organic free-range eggs||
|350g of cherry tomatoes on the vine||
I also got a 2 € refund for returning 8 plastic drinks bottles.
Right then, now I am off to make a pizza for dinner!
