With the prices of celery at about $5 a bunch here at the stores a person was saying how they were thinking of buying Chinese celery instead as it was so much cheaper. Of course the main question is what is the difference? For the most part it almost seemed the same. But the price was definitely way cheaper as it was less than $2 a bunch. You probably couldn’t tell the difference honestly if someone didn’t mention it to you.
That’s one of the benefits to exploring and learning different cultures. You can often learn how to do things differently in general which makes you wonder why you didn’t think of it but it also opens up all these ideas on the other types of things such as food you could incorporate into your life that may make more sense financially. It’s kind of like how if all you did was dine out then your basis of a good price deal is whatever is offered at restaurants. But shopping and preparing your own meals will sure make you look at food prices differently.
You definitely need to invest some time in learning about different cultures as an example. But in the end I think that knowledge can be very valuable to help you save money and in general.
