Life in the FLL: Wish List!

Listen, the FLL is great.

We are really enjoying living here and there is really very little food-wise that we cannot get here.  There is a really nice, modern grocery store 1.5km from our house that carries almost all of what we need.  There is another, smaller store near Maddie’s school that carries a good amount of imported goods (tortilla chips and salsa).  Every Tuesday, I (Will) go to the  local fruit and

vegetable market to buy all that we need for the week.  For all the vegetables, it costs about $4; fruits are a bit more expensive, costing about $6.  Yep, for $10 a week, we get: oranges, grapes, apples, pomegranates, bananas, eggplant, okra, tomatoes, potatoes, green beans, garlic, onions, cauliflower, carrots, and cucumbers.  BAM!

However, there are a few things that are not here in the FLL that would be wonderful to have, but that we can live without.  We call this our wish list.  So here’s our wish list for any of you who have (or want to) send something to us:

  • Welch’s Grape Jam in squeeze bottle
  • Bisquick (both regular and gluten-free)
  • Nestle’s chocolate chips
  • M&M’s and/or Snickers
  • Boxed Mac and Cheese
  • marshmallows
  • Dry Ranch packets
  • Taco seasonings (without wheat)
  • Pepperoni
  • Lysol Wipes
  • Magic Erasers
  • Bic mechanical pencils
  • Dry Erase markers
  • 4×6 Index cards, lined
  • *Cute* Notecards from Target’s Dollar Spot or wherever w/ envelopes
  • Tide Stain sticks
  • Gatorade/Lemonaide mixes
  • Flushable wipes (Cottonelle or store brand)
  • Fun band-aids

Now Beth has a gluten allergy, so here is her special wish list:

  • Anything made by Udi’s
  • Nut-thins Crackers (Sea Salt or Original)
  • DeBoles spaghetti/penne rice noodles
  • Trader Joe’s makes a real nice boxed mac and cheese

No pressure on ANYONE to send us a package.  We know that the cost of shipping through USPS runs anywhere from $40-$60 per box.  But for those that ask, here ya go!  Just leave a comment or send an email (willj31 at gmail dot com) and we’ll send you our address.  Thanks in advance!!!

  1. BAM is right! Crazy awesome how cheap that stuff is, so glad it makes it easier for you to have some wonderful familiar things you love. I can only imagine how comforting it can be to have those things here and there. 🙂
