- Medium jar of mayo (generic was $1.90 cheaper a jar than Hellman's)
- Red wine vinegar (hopefully! Didn't see any red wine vinegar at the store, but decided brown grape vinegar might be it. Generic was $6.28 cheaper than German brand)
- Black olives (jar, but equivalent of a can of olives in the US)
- 1 kg of spiral pasta (saved just over $4 by getting non-colored over tri-colored)
- 2 yellow bell peppers
- 4 tomatoes
Maybe I am just really cheap and out of touch with US prices, but this seemed like it cost a lot. Often there is not a choice of brand. Since some of the items here had a local or imported option, I was able to save. For produce I got the cheapest option. All the produce was looking pretty dismal. There are some other ingredients that I already have on hand. We will see how it tastes. Perhaps I should have spent $12 to get "quality" ingredients.
Of course I also purchased additional items including 1.06 gallons of milk ($6.85) and 17 cough drops ($3.32). The cough drops taste like burped up sausage, though they claim to be cherry flavored. I think I will stop coughing just to avoid using one.
