How much does it cost to live on Saipan? Saipan Apartments?
I get that question quite often from many people who discover SaipanLiving.com website, and are interested in visiting or relocating. So, today, as public service to the world, I shall answer it based on my own lifestyle.
Today is Saturday. At about 6:30am, I typically head out to the Sabalu Market in Susupe to buy my produce from local farmers.
Then, I might stop at the local supermarket to pick up a few more items. Here is a photo of me and today’s take.
FROM THE SUPERMARKET
1. Joy 12.6oz Ultra dish detergent
(they’ve run out of Dishmate Earth-Friendly liquid)
|2. Mason Jar (32oz)
(for making my own kimchee/culturedveggies)

|4. Food For Life Gluten Free tortillas (specially orderedjust for the fringe dwellers)|
|5. Health Valley Cereal||$5.59|

The stainless steel pots in the photo (aluminum pots leach aluminum which causes Alzheimers and the coating of non-stick pots are toxic) were purchased in New York and brought to Saipan. (Caused some raised eyebrows when the TSA agent at the airport saw them in my carry-on luggage–see Jamaican on Saipan, the book)
