....here's where things get really good...
Bananas - $.50 for 8. And probably not much more than a day off the tree!
Lime - $.10 each
Watermelon - about $6.00 ea for a large one. I'm told these will get cheaper but they are out of season right now.
We can fill a large shopping bag at the market with really fresh fruits and veggies for about $4.00. It really is amazing!
Eating out is a great deal if you pick the right places. We have a favorite restaurant called RD's. We ate there yesterday for a total of $8.50. That's two full plates and drinks.
Gas - $5.00 for imp gallon. It's expensive...very close to Fort Nelson price. But when you consider what people earn here it's pretty crazy!
