What does 1,000 Kenyan shillings buy

1815

Prices of Items of basic commodities in Kenya have increased significantly over the past two years. If you have Ksh1, 000 you’ll not buy more than 10 items. Many people are wondering, in case you have Ksh1, 000, which items will you buy?!!

Assuming you are buying supper, you’ll buy the following items:

1kg of meat=Ksh 550

Tomatoes, Sukuma and onion=Ksh 100

2kg Cooking flour=Ksh 100

¼ KG Cooking oil=Ksh 250

If you are buying items from the supermarket, you’ll buy the following items

2 packets of milk=Ksh100

2kg cooking flour=Ksh100

I roll of tissue paper=Ksh400

Soap=Ksh200

Colgate=Ksh100

Bread=Ksh60

Matchstick=Ksh20

Salt=Ksh20

Alternatively, you can buy these items with Ksh 1,000:

Half KG of cooking oil=Ksh 500

Sugar 1kg=Ksh100

Rice 1kg=Ksh200

Maize flour=Ksh 100

Bread+milk=Ksh100

As you can see from above, Ksh1, 000 is not enough to do shopping for all the items you need in a home. Shopping requires Ksh5, 000 and above.
