In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

What does a 1000 rubles buy?

What you are faced with in a Russian store…decisions, decisions…

A 1000 rubles is as per todays exchange = $17.69…

I bought groceries for about six meals and that translates into around $3.00 a meal….two people, who will eat good. I bought, eight chicken breasts frozen, big bottle of soda, almost a kilo of red and yellow peppers, special tofu noodles, two cans of mushrooms, cucumbers, tomatoes, kielbasa, sour cream, two liters of milk and a dozen other items…

I had a huge sack full of goodies. I usually do not buy that much, but the refrigerator was getting empty. It is full now and I have food to cook for three plus days, with what was still in the fridge…

Cost of Living? Moscow way down the list…

I just wrote about how reasonable Moscow is to live at. I have talked before about such things. That money even included a treat for me. Some chips to munch on today. I buy them once in awhile and today I wanted a treat….they are spicy and since Svetochka does not like such goodies as this. I buy them just for myself… 😉

29 rubles buys a big pack and I love them….not really good for me, but sometimes we have to accept that we are weak and want something not good for us…

I did notice bread today was 8 rubles a kilo, but I do not buy hardly any bread anymore. but it is cheap…

It is real life in Russia…

Stores are packed with stock, food is cheap and life is good…
