How do I participate?

You can email you submissions to or add them to the five dollar comparison group at Flickr. Please read through the guidelines below.

  1. Choose one thing that costs as near to $5 as possible (What's that in my currency?). The thing can be an object: a book; a bag of grain; phone credit or a service: vaccination; hair cut; dentist check-up; charity donation; taxi ride; massage - the more variety the better.
  2. Take a nice clean photo of 'the thing'.
  3. Describe what was bought, where it was bought, and how much it costs in the local currency.
  4. Finally,
