What can you get for 99 cents (or 61 pence if, like me, you’re in the UK)? Not a lot, usually.
In the UK, you can buy a 40g bar of Aero. Now, I love Aero, but it would take me longer to unwrap a 40g bar than it would to eat it.
You can get a whopping 57g Bounty bar but, again, it’s not exactly filling, is it?
A bottle of wine will cost anything from £6 ($9.68) upwards. Very nice, but how long does a bottle of wine last? Okay, don’t answer that one. :)
If I wanted to go to the cinema tonight and spend a couple of hours watching a film, it would set me back £7.25 ($11.70) or £9.40 ($15.17) if I wanted the 3D experience.
So you’d imagine that 99 cents - or 61 pence - wouldn’t buy you a lot.
