I live in wasilla and we have a fred meyers here. That is the only store I go to since it's got good prices for your toiletries needs, toilet paper, diapers, etc. We are going to be getting a super walmart by the end of this year - can't wait. Oh, and a target by the end of may 2008!!!
Anyway, milk $3, bread $1, soda $3.50... I would say the fruits and veggies are a bit higher in the winter. What you would spend the most on would be for gas, heating your place and all. And I was just looking for an apartment for a friend, and a 3bd, 3bth, w/d included, $1100 a month!!! Friends in Oregon compare that it's cheaper to live in OR but then again, all their groceries are grown there and don't have to be shipped. All in all, very average prices.

My first question to all the residents of your beautiful state, is what is the average cost for basic food items, such as a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, soft drinks, etc?

Looking forward to corresponding with you all!

Rance really thank you for answering my questionss
First off, you need toi find out if what you are shopping for is even legal for you to buy.
Just about all computer equipment, software, etc sold here in the USA is marked "not for export".
That probably includes selling to you, which you should already know.

I just spent two weeks in Hawaii and I'll never think of Alaska prices as high again! We may be a little higher than the lower 48, but that's nothing compared to Hawaii.

These prices are pretty good. Everybody says Alaska's really expensive, but the prices I keep seeing for things in most of the Southcentral region aren't much different than here.

Edit: Aw, darnit! This is a resurrected thread! They would have been good prices a couple years ago too, though.

Default Bulk rice for sale to Alaska, Hawaii or anywhere on Earth!

Hi. We actually noticed the prices going up in Alaska. So much so that we went out and bought some rice and listed it on eBay. Its 20lb bags of Carolina rice (factory sealed) and we listed it for about 27$ shipped via USPS. We hope this will help someone. Spread the word, the more we sell the cheaper we can list them for. Copy and paste this address into your browser:
