Belize Shopping a Travel Tuesday Story
I had the best intentions to get to Corozal this week but it did not work out. Instead I found myself back on a Tropic Air Cessna Caravan headed to Municipal Airport so I could do some shopping in Belize City yesterday.
I decided to walk around a bit more near Save U so I could see what other places I might want to add to my route fpr future. First stop was a pinata and housewares store – I scored a couple of baking pans cheap there. Next came a large A&R and while they did have some different items – our San Pedro store holds up well in comparison. Lastly I went across a bridge because I saw a big building with a Camping Store sign. Turns out not so much camping gear – they had a whole bunch of crazy shoes and way too many skeeters.
Time for Save U and a good look through the store at pricing and things I would put on my regular shopping list from there. I found lots I liked especially wasabbi rice crackers at a very reasonable price. It is amazing how much a little food shopping variety can get me excited – especially now that Maureen is into cooking.
My grocery bill at Save U came to $93.06 bzd. For that price I got 3 magazines – wheat bread – box of raisins – grated coconut – Feng Shui brand wasabi rice crackers – 2 packs whole nutmeg – crackers – chocolate fudge pudding snack pack – small honey roasted peanuts – capt kid crunchy peanut butter – 2 plastic organizer baskets.
Made one last stop at a variety store on the way home to get a large tin foil for Maureen $9 and change and large size oats to make granola with $6.50. Then it was back to municipal to catch the 3:30 Tropic Air to San Pedro – our plane touched down in Caye Caye Caulker to drop a couple of people off on our way home.
I was hoping to get this finished before class but that is not going to happen. I have been busy editing pictures and working on recycling our coconut water containers. I will write more about recycling and my Belize magazine [which is why I went back to Save U] in tomorrows post. Here are my travel Tuesday Pictures of Belize City.
