I'm from India and i know there there people from different nationalities here at mylot, so i would like to know what all things you could buy with 15 cents, 30 cents and 60 cents in your respective countries. I chose to ask about 15,30, and 60 cents respectively because thats how much i get paid by various money makings sites on internet. With Indian Rupee appreciating against dollar my earnings are also coming down, so just curious about what different people at different countries could buy with this same amount of money. These are the things i could buy with 15 cents in india 15 cents = 6 Rupees. with 6 rupees we could buy 1)A business daily, 2)30ml of Glue,3) A ball point pen 30 cents = 12 Rupees. With 12 rupees we could buy 1) A blank CD/DVD 2) A permanent marker pen 3) A weekly news magazine 60 cents = 24 Rupees With 24 rupees we could buy 1) Half liter of Petrol 2) 1 kilo refined wheat powder (atta) 3)One and a half kilo of sugar. Now let me know what you could buy with the same amount of money in your country.

In our country when we talk about about cents like you said 15 30 and 60 cents, we cannot buy something of worth. One candy maybe but it's nothing!

I don't think there is anything we can buy for 15 cents... 30 cents could get you a pack of gum, or maybe something from the 25 cent toy/candy machines outside of stores. 60 cents... you could get candy.. maybe a can of soda... I *think* a daily newspaper, but not the Sunday paper, those are more expensive.

for 15 cents I could get 3 small jube jube candies at a convenience store. For 30 cents I could maybe get more. For 60 cents you could get an old chocolate bar on sale, can of soup maybe if on sale. It is pretty hard today to get anything for those prices unless it is a sale.

In America, not a darn thing really. Everything here is very expensive compared to other parts of the world. If you were lucky you might find a store selling candy that is cheap. But other than that to buy anything here it seems that you need to have a dollar and most of the time more than that.
