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.
