There have been many threads recently discussing the costs associated with living in Qatar. The most popular post though is from back in 2008, so it is time to get different opinions on the current cost of living.
Please add your input below. Try to stick to cost and description, rather than detailed explanations. The idea of this is to give new people an idea of what to expect.

At least seven famous Turkish films will be screened at 7pm for seven days during the festival, which will continue until June 26.
Among the celebrities who will be in Qatar for the festival is Mahsun Kırmızıgül, who is the director and lead actor in the movie Five Minarets in New York, which will be screened on the opening day.
Kirmizigul is also a very popular singer in Turkey. His famous soap Life Goes On was recently aired on Arab channels, which dealt with sensitive issues such as child marriages in Turkey’s eastern provinces.
After the big success for last year’s “ Eyes on Qatar” festivals, and with a refreshed identity and enhanced entertainment offerings, Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) has announced the launch of the “Eid Festivals”.
The “Eid Festivals” will revolve around a family-friendly hub of edutainment activities, world-class shows and exciting international performances taking place throughout Doha and Al Khor.
All the malls in Qatar will be part of the festival celebrations, where the visitors will enjoy the activities running in these malls while they are enjoying their shopping.

Qatar Airways has signed an agreement to buy up to nine Boeing 777-300ER aircraft valued at $2.8 billion at list prices, the airline said at the Paris Airshow on Monday.
Two of the aircraft on firm order will be delivered in early 2014, airline Chief Executive Akbar Al-Baker said.
Options for the other seven are likely to be firmed up shortly after, and the delivery schedule will be decided then, he added.
The order is part of the company's "aggressive and rapid development," Al Baker said.
The Doha-based airline, already a 777 customer, operates 35 of the extended-range jets.
The latest order, valued at $2.8 billion before discounts, will grow its fleet of the Boeing jets to 51. Deliveries begin in early 2014.
Qatar took its first delivery of Boeing 777s in 2007.
No matter how older you get, you will always remember those Disney characters from your childhood. Bringing Disney to the Middle East, especially in Doha, was a great success. Only during the first week of posting the event details, seats were running out for almost all of the sections. Not only tickets were sold to local residence, but internationally as well. People from different parts of the world were extremely excited to come and see the performance. The performance by all means was overwhelming, and extremely amazing! The songs that were selected made all of the audience sing along. Such songs were like:
“A whole New World”
“Beauty & the Beast”
& lots of other theme songs of different Disney movies.
Visited Ezdan mall couple of days back. I must admit the entire outlook has changed with the opening of many new shops like bebe, forever 21, Carrefour and Tim Horton's. The mall was buzzing with excitement as compared to the early few weeks. My purpose of visit was to check out forever 21, a store I have longed for since like forever to open in Doha, with it's amazingly reasonable prices and huge huge range of merchandise! and I was delighted to find a lot of brands on sale:) It was a very pleasant experience (not like the other crowded malls in Doha) and we found parking in no time!
What i found most appealing, was the modern outlook of the mall, which is very inviting for families especially in lieu of the variety of brands that are due to open soon.
