With our move getting closer is there anything we should stock up on(I.e. anything that is more expensive than uk) Are toiletries more expensive?

Hi Sharon,

Have a look here https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/ for itemised cost of living comparisons. Just go to the Cost of Living tab and click on Cost of Living Comparison and input two cities of your choice e.g. Lisbon and London. You will get an overall cost of living comparison and an itemised list of consumer items.

You won't find much that's more expensive in Portugal v the UK. Unfortunately they don't cover toiletries and cleaning products but it's interesting nevertheless.

They don´t sell oxo cubes or salad cream here - two essentials for me!

Probably not applicable and men of a delicate disposition look away now ---> if you've had a hysterectomy and are on HRT then stock up because they don't have the "single formula" one here in PT, at least not of the brand Femoston; not sure about other brands but maybe the same problem.

You don't say where you are moving to!

If to the Algarve or Southern Alentejo there are plenty of purveyors of UK products!

North of Ourique & Odemira more difficult.

Both are available at Toni's in Avalar (as is Bisto).

Hi All

Seems Tony is getting around in the Lousa, Gois, Vila Nova De Ceria even Pete's bar. If you have a freezer bring plenty of the Cheese you like as Lidle have Cheese from Northern Ireland even Aldi has Lye cross farm Cheddar. Cheese is the one thing i don't want to be without but i have plenty in my freezer. Typhoo tea bags 1100 from B&M is the best buy but when you pay for tea bags from the likes of the English guy at the markets the price is eye watering.

Peter

I would recommend that you try the Portuguese cheeses; prior to bring over a freezer full from the UK! There are dozens of excellent cheeses over here.
