    Well 20 cigarettes will cost you about 7-8 dollars I think.
    MacDonalds meal will be about5.00-$6.00
    Microwave meals are from3.50-$6.00
    A 2 litre bottle of milk is about3.50
    Eggs about2.50+ for 6
    Half a kilo of skinless chicken fillets -6.50

    The prices depend on where you shop. The eggs I buy are free range so you could get cheaper ones. And of course supermarkets have their specials every week.

    Hope this helps...

    A fairly accurate rule of thumb is what you spend in pounds we pay in dollars. I don,t smoke but think a packet costs11 -15. Can of coca cola1.60, pub meals from10 up average would be20 plus drinks.
