What are you willing to give up if you are going to live somewhere foreign? Best countries to retire cheap needs you to define “best”. For one of my exes the thought of living somewhere without cheese would drive her batty. For me I’m missing Alberta beef very badly. In the Philippines I’ve discovered you can get your favourite foods, but they can be pricy. For example that box of Cocoa Pebbles is $10. Sure it’s not that expensive, but considering the fact that you can get a tasty breakfast in the Philippines for 50 cents, it makes that imported cereal the equivalent of $20. Here are some more prices of international food I found.
So, the key here is you’ll want to eat locally, avoiding these pricy foreign imports. That can of Campbell’s cream of mushroom is now a luxury,not something you make a cheap Alfredo sauce with. Looking for the best countries to retire cheap can definitely involve some changes in your choice of comfort food. Now instead of Hostess, I’m all about strange local fish snacks!
