These are a few items I bought today at the supermarket. The Australian dollar and the Swiss franc are almost 1:1 at the moment.
A loaf of good quality bread (380g) – $2.60. Worth every cent. I love the bread here.
Milk (1 litre) – $1.65.
Carton of 6 free-eggs – $3.60.
Potatoes (Amandine) (680g) – $2.90.
Good quality ham (100g) – $3.45.
Cheese (Winzerkaese) (250g) – $4.35.
Ten years ago it was much cheaper to live in Australia but the cost of living has increased phenomenally there. I am not spending much more on groceries than I did in Australia but we are eating less meat because that is a lot more expensive here. A couple of other things that are more expensive here are petrol (currently about $1.70/litre) and health insurance (which is compulsory and I can’t even say the amount without crying). I will never complain about how much I paid for health insurance in Australia ever again. Cars are cheaper here. So is wine. Thankfully.
