At some point, you’re going to get tired of living the way you do… so I want to start a new “series” of blog posts. So people can see how I live, how cheap it is to live here, and because these are easy posts while I work on BeAForeigner.com. 😊

I usually order groceries once or twice a week to be delivered. This week I wanted hamburgers and it’s that time of the month so lots of junk food 😣. I don’t normally buy this stuff!

The delicious hamburger I made…#proud 🥳

Here’s my list with prices (in Mexican pesos):

  • Pickles $45.50
  • Grapefruit (5) $10.00
  • Blackberry Yogurt Popsicles $33.00
  • Chocolate chip ice cream $55.00
  • Yogurt 6 pack $37.50
  • Spinach $9.00
  • Water 5L (3) $51.00
  • Red grapes $23.50
  • Frosted Flakes $34.00
  • Dozen of eggs $25.50
  • Milk $20.50

I’ll get another delivery this week because I can’t eat hamburgers all week.
