We went to the local food co_op for grocery shopping this week. I did a careful inventory of what we already had before e we went, especially as USAShoestring had asked us to leave some home cooked meals in the freezer for him so he could have them after we leave on Tueesday. I'm pleased to say that it all came to 42 dollars and 45 cents. So I am getting better as the time goes on ! I expect that we will still pick up a few things whilst we are on the road back to the airport next week but the total should still be a lot less than previously. Just as well as I still have to shop for the rest of the month once we get back to the UK !
