Interesting, you can get two chickens for 8$? Did that go up the last 10 years? About the same here. One chicken approx 1,5kg/3lb about 3,60€/4.23$ Porks about 4€/4,70$ a 1kg/2lb Beef 13€/15.27$ Fish and shellfish is relatively cheap and abundant here, coastal region. The Publix equivalent supermarket here has fresh fish. Fishmongers all over the place. thats a pic of one. Anthropology is a b****. They don't do that much storage here. It is too hot. You go walk to one of the 2 supermarkets in your reach (200 m) almost every other day. No biggy to go and buy dinner for just one day. No giant freezers and normal sized fridges. No texas size packages. Almost forgot all those tiny diferences between america and europe. Behaviour is much different. May I ask how much is a loaf of bread where you live?
