French 101



In Paris, I was obsessed with the Monoprix. I wanted to go in every one of them. Forget wine and perfume, I wanted to buy toothpaste, detergent, dishwashing soap, cookies, lipbalm, shower gel--I wanted it all. With the dollar the way it was (and is), good thing I didn't. But it's nice to know you can find many of these things at the charming website Basic French.

I love it too--oh, the money I could spend on dishwashing soap and toothpaste!

You don't even want to know how many hours and how much money i have spent at Monoprix. I wish you could order things online at more places than just basic french, but it's a good start!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one! My parents are going to Germany in December, and I told mom to just go in the drugstore and buy me lip balm and lotion!

Monoprix reminds me of Cameroon too. There are stores in Yaounde and Douala.
