Faced with the inflationary crisis plaguing Great Britain, a duo of English YouTubers recently went to Poland to do their shopping. Despite the cost of plane tickets, the two friends got it cheaper than in Great Britain.
Food inflation is not just about France. Across the channel, a duo of YouTubers caused a stir this week after proving it’s cheaper to fly to Poland to do your shopping instead of hitting the local supermarket.
In a video posted on YouTube this Wednesday, November 1, we get a first look Josh & Archie, 1.5 million subscribers at the counter, checkout at a Little store in Clapham, south London. The declared price at the receipt after buying a set of 135 products appearing in the average basket established by the government: 164.47 pounds sterling or 188.77 euros.
“Present an absurd situation”
For the same shopping list, the duo spent just £96.75 (€111.05) in Poznan, Poland. By adding the cost of Ryanair flight tickets (47 pounds sterling, including luggage on return to one of them), but the cost of a night’s stay via Couchsurfing (8.55 pounds sterling); Josh & Archie managed to save £11.14 by the end of their trip!
“It’s not a suggestion for how people save money,” two young people interviewed said Dailymail. But the approach aims to highlight the absurd situation we find ourselves in in the evolution of inflation.”
