My Weekly Grocery Bill in Barbados (With Receipts!) | Life with James 5
UCOb9YRZYa-HSXQnylUGJ70g

Hey Hey! So I decided to share a little bit more about how much things cost in Barbados. This is just one example, so please let me know if you'd like to see more like this!

1. I usually shop at Massy and Cost U Less, so these prices are based on what these stores offer. There are other options on the island, but shopping at these stores is most convenient for me because they are both really close to where I live.

2. I'll sometimes pop into Jordans (if it isn't crowded) because there's a branch also really close to me and I'll go there if I need one or two items and I don't feel like driving very far.

3. Also, being from another country, while I do buy a LOT of local products, I also buy items that I'm used to and brands that I recognise. Imported items tend to cost a lot more.

Also, at 7:06 I said "my total for the month" but I actually meant my total for the week. 🤦🏾‍♀️


Keep well xo

Love your content, Jamie. I don't know if you've done a makeup tutorial or a GRWM video but if not, it would be amazing because you totally glow 😊

I am with you on the danish - such a weakness for me lol.

When I was growing up here in the sixties, we used butter to bake with. I think the younger people did learn how to cook an bake the right way

I'm from New York, this doesn't seem more than what I spend on groceries here. Especially taking in mind the conversion rate. This is somewhat reassuring. Helpful video!

You're too classy. Massy at Sunset Crest seem to recruit their staff from modelling agencies. When I'm in Barbados I shop at Price Lo in Sargents Village.

Hello everyone! :D
You said $219 total for the month. But then you said for the Week! WHICH ONE??
O.O OMG $900 a MONTH in groceries??? O.O for ONE PERSON???
it's insane! How??

I think we pay $90 here for two people. Yes $90.
We don't eat any of the things you eat though.

Mostly eat rice, fresh vegetables, a little meat, drink water or coffee no milk, some fruit.

$900 How do the people in BBD survive? The GDP is only $19, 000 per person per YEAR!

This is in Barbados dollars right? So when you say the cheese was $10.99 thats Barbados dollars not USD?

Author — Morgan Lilly

Author

You should state that the cost is in Barbados dollars. $1 USD equals $1.98 BDS. So the total in USD is approximately half.
