Here's How Much I Spend Stocking Up on the Essentials in Barcelona

Olivia stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few essentials to eat and use. See how much things cost in Barcelona and what she spent overall in euros.

This weekend my friends and I decided to walk around the city, go to the beach, and do some grocery shopping. I documented what I bought and how much I spent throughout the day. I started with a coffee and went to the fruit stand to get some strawberries. We walked around and I remembered I needed a lock so I quickly picked one up in a big home store off Parallel Avenue. Then, we walked to Las Ramblas and I got a slice of pizza for lunch. After walking to the beach we went home and stopped at the grocery store on the way. Here I picked up all my essentials: eggs, bread, pasta, chicken, hair products, chips, salsa, and of course, fries. By the end of the day, my total was 33.14 euros which equates to USD$35.45.
