There is often talk about how much things cost here and where to shop. It is very rare that we manage one stop shopping on the island. I used to keep a price book of what things cost at different stores but have not updated it in a long time – thinking it might be good to revisit that idea.
Here is the 411 on San Pedro shopping social scene and what I got for my $69 bzd today
Maria’s where I ran into Rudy, Doug and Jean. There I bought 4 green peppers – 2 white onions – 2 bananas – 1 cucumber – 1 avocado which did not make it in my bag somehow (not sure if I was charged for it or not). Total cost 12.50 – I also had the pleasure of being handed a fresh squeezed orange juice while I shopped which along with the friendly service more than makes up for my missing avocado. ( I am not an oj fan prefer real oranges but this was good) I also got a ride from Rudy to my next shopping destination. (to see more of maria’s mini market check out Island Life blog)
San Pedro Public Supermarket – ran into Brad there. I spent 19.50 there and I got – 1 package napkins – 1 box raspberry juice – 3 cans salsa casera – 1 pack chili seasoning mix – 4 carrots – 1 box president milk – 1 box Kirkland soy milk.
Santiago Castillo – Enes from Belize Diving adventures was shopping too. There I purchased 1 bottle of white vinegar – 1 box of 3 cheese macaroni – 1 8oz brick of cheese – 1 small bottle of cucumber ranch dressing – 1 pack cinnamon raisin bagels – 1 real mayonnaise – one package ginger cookies – one bag uncooked popcorn – total cost $37
I would have spent more as I planned to buy a box of shrimp at the Crystal depot but when I got there I learned that they switched things back to how it used to be and I have to go to the Belikin depot to get my shrimp. If I was doing a full shop I would have added in the sausage factory and a few stores in town as well but I wanted to stay close to home and on foot.
