Default Amazon Grocery

Amazon now sells bulk grocery items, which is quite interesting as an alternate to BJs/Sams/Costco etc.

One item of particular interest to this expat was that they have PG Tips - 4x160 count boxes for $26, which isn't too bad..

Bar the tea, tend to agree, unless you have the urge to get three thousand rolls of bog roll delivered to your door free on Super Saver shipping. And being the states, I'm sure there's a market for it.

That's exactly why we should get BJs, the extra protien will help build muscles for carrying the grocery bags home.
