Let’s face it, a lot of the people who come from abroad to live here in the Philippines do so because the cost of living here is very low! Even knowing that things are inexpensive, I get a lot of people asking me for prices of certain products. Because of this, I want to list prices of various products here on this post, and you can compare them to prices in your locale.
Yesterday, I got a sale circular delivered to my house from Macro. Macro is sort of the equivilant to a Costco or Sam’s Club type of operation. Let’s look at some of their sale prices this week:
