    I can't believe people actually buy grocery items from Amazon. Most of what's there ranges from 2-10x the brick-and-mortar price. Sometimes it's even more than that!

    Even taking into account the meta-costs of shopping, I can't even begin to make it pencil out.

    @kettch:

    It's amazing what you'll spend to get treats that are no longer available to yourself locally!
    As an ex-pat Brit living in the USA, I am used to spending 3-6 times the price for real Cadbury's chocolate (not the fake stuff made by Hershey under license here), Branston pickle, Heinz baked beans and yes, even Marmite. Smiley

    Plus whenever I take a trip home, I always take an extra suitcase to haul back a load of loot.
