Grocery Bill

This is my 6th blog post on my grocery bill. 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. 😊

This week I don’t know what I’m having but I have plenty of meat in the freezer to choose from.

A picture of yours truly. I need to grab a scale for my new diet and exercise plan. 🧐 This is my handmade bathing suit for my trips about $18.

No meat as I have some in the freezer. Just getting my vegetables, proteins, and carbs in along with my fruits and vegetables for my new diet.

Total was $1,236.60 pesos BUT I received $386.32 in discounts so total was $870.28. That’s about $45 USD with the exchange rate of about 19 pesos (the exchange rate fluctuates a lot here) = $1 dollar. That includes the service fee, the tip, and any discounts I received.

Without a plan, Elyse Y. Robinson moved to México City after her mother passed away from blood cancer on November 11, 2016. She never heard of México City nor even visited México before. She just knew she had to escape America to mourn. She had quit her whole life to help her family anyway. She had nothing more to lose. She is going into her fourth year in México and she is there to stay!
