We are in Vienna, Austria for Christmas. When you are in Vienna for the Christmas holidays, you have to plan ahead with your groceries because many of the stores (including the grocery stores) are closed the 24th, 25th and 26th for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. We decided to plan simple meals for the next few days: sandwiches and mini pizzas!
One thing we love about Vienna is our grocery bill is always less than we expect. In Washington, DC, groceries were quite expensive and we realized once we moved there that our usual grocery tab was 2-3 times more than what we paid in Florida for the same items. For example, toilet paper. In Orlando we could buy a huge set of 30 rolls of TP at BJ’s Wholesale for $25. In DC, 9 rolls of TP was $10. Here in Vienna, 10 rolls of nice thick TP is â‚¬3. Then some items in Washington, DC were maybe just $1 or $2 more like eggs, cheese, wine, etc. But those few dollars here there and everywhere add up!
