Frugal Food in France

We are going to Nantes later this summer. We will probably do much of our grocery shopping in the markets, but we love love love Monoprix, a chain that has groceries, stationery, kitchen wares, and even clothing.

We always bring back a few French notebooks, with the graph pattern pages, and can't wait to have a little one to buy petit bateau shirts for.

Now you can even check out the food ads on-line. What a great way to practice my French and prepare my budget.

Many people are bewildered by my love of checking grocery ads; perhaps checking FRENCH grocery ads has a bit more cachet.

Monoprix is great! When we were in Paris last July we used to buy a few salads and sandwiches there to take with us while sightseeing.

Have fun in France!

Between Monoprix and the local markets you will have a fine food time!

Yes, we do love, love, love Monoprix!

@Marcela--We do the same.

@Duchesse--Oh, we hope so! thanks.

@TJ--Thanks for stopping by. Love your blog. Trying to figure out what I can wear in Nantes. My son said NO FLIPFLOPS, even leather.
