Times a price genuinely surprised you

Inspired by @fappable and her loaf of bread.

When’s the last time you were genuinely surprised at the price of something?

Was in Homebase a couple of weeks ago, and this big fuck off gazebo thing was only £180. Bargain! That was after catching the bus into town, when a return was over £6. Madness!

Now you…

Mate of mine recently mentioned he’d bought a Mont Blanc briefcase. Thought I’d have a look at what sort of bunse we’re talking for that sort of thing. Wish I hadn’t.

was just in a coffee shop and they had a 200g bag of beans going for £25

didn’t buy any

Almond flour £15 for 1kg maaaaate

Nuts are always so expensive too and I love me some nuts


Horizon: Zero Dawn went up for pre-order on Steam for £32 the other week and I was surprised at how reasonable that was given that it’s likely to be very popular and was a huge Sony exclusive. Didn’t bother pre-ordering because what’s the advantage?

They put the price up to £39 after a few days.

Saw a lightshade recently that was about £400. I think ours were £5 max.

In my electric toothbrush research the other night, I learned that the new top of the range Oral B smart toothbrush that’s coming out on August 1st is £500. For a toothbrush.



Every time I put my shopping through the checkout in Lidl.


Yeah man they’ve all got Bluetooth and WiFi and performance monitoring and MP3 players in them now

was it new or an antique?

Earlier today someone on Twitter mentioned waiting for the price of Civ VI to drop on Xbox so I looked up how much it cost on Steam and it was $89.95 and I was genuinely surprised it was so much money.

It’s not even that much really but in my head Civ couldn’t ever cost that much.

Really looking forward to mine arriving
