Cost of Living in Qatar: Household Items

In our latest post on the Cost of Living in Qatar we have a look at the cost of household items. The prices here are taken from the supermarket Family Food, which is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive shop in Doha (you'll find cheaper in Carrefour in City Centre or Villagio Mall.)

For comparison purposes, exchange rates at time of writing: 1 Qatar Riyal is equal to 27 US cents, 11 Indian Rupees or 12 Filipino Pesos. However, exchange rates can change rapidly, and if you want to be totally sure of the prices use our Universal Currency Converter.
