Tuesday is a good day to go grocery shopping as all the large grocery stores have their specials on that day. I headed to the Santa Fe grocery store on Serdan and around 20 th street, this used to be a VH until they went bye bye.
Yesterdays specials, (that I bought), I didn't look around much as only wanted veggies that I could carry as I didn't need enough stuff to warrant my "big grocery shopping taxi".
I ended up with enough stuff though that I wished I had taken a cab, why do I always think I can comfortably carry more than I can? High expectations I expect and a lack of comprehension about my present physical capabilities.
Anyway the prices on the stuff that I bought were as follows, prices in pesos for kilos.. If you are interested enough you can do the conversions. Today according to the site I watch 1 CAD is = 1.01 USD and 1 CAD = 12.14 MXN, 1 USD = 12.07 MXN. A kilo is equal to 2.2 pounds weight more or less.
radishes @ 1 pesos per bunch ( .08 cents a bunch CAD)
lettuce @ 8.90 pesos a head ( .73 cents per head CAD)
cabbage @ 8.45 pesos per kilo ( .70 cents per kilo CAD)
white onions @ 4.95 pesos per kilo ( .41 cents per kilo CAD)
salad tomatoes (sort of roma) @ 5.95 pesos a kilo ( .49 cents per kilo CAD)
potatos @ 7,85 pesos a kilo ( .65 cents per kilo CAD)
According to their calculation on my bill I saved a total of 42.50 pesos by shopping on Tuesday. Total of the bill by the way was 85.00 pesos ( $7.00 CAD); but that also included a 370 gram box of butter, which was 32.90 pesos. The bill was actually a few centavos less; but the difference to even it off was given as a "redondeo", that is when the clerks ask you if you want to give something to whatever group/charity they are giving to that month, usually a worthwhile thing to do with your centavos to even out your bill.
So, how does this compare to what you are paying? Is it more or less?
