    Hi All,

    I have been living in Shanghai close to 10 years now and with the arrival of our second kid, and his entry in Kindergarten , the budget do tend to get a bit tight. which brings me to my question. I’m open to all sorts of info you guys can spare.

    Where do you guys go shop for pantries groceries.
    (not vegies, fish and meat but the rest)
    It does give me an itch to spend 40 kuai for a pack of good cornflakes, 25 for biscuits …. 400 for powdered milk is really abusive
    Prices for imported food are on average 3 times higher than back home
    i do understand chain stores like Carrefour are charged with transportation costs, import duty ….
    I understand too that there is a cost to living like home when you are in fact 10’000km away from home.

    anyway. let me know if you guys have any good tip.
    I live in Gubei but work in Minhang so i do travel, location is not an issue.

    sorry for the long read and thanks for reading
