There are some cultural differences between Argentina and the United States regarding things sold at the grocery store that come in a bag. Some items seem to be more sensibly sold by the bag, but sometimes a box, or whatever, seems better.
When we lived in England, I saw family size juice drinks sold by the box for the first time. I thought it was a terrific idea. Well, that quite a few years ago and juice drinks come in large boxes and small boxes in many places in the US now.
Look at the following items and decide if you would like to purchase them in a bag or in some other kind of container. Maybe they already sell these items in bags in your neighborhood!
At the end, I am going to share a personal family tradition, which has nothing to do with the things at the grocery store, but does have something to do with a BAG.
Nestle’s Quick Powdered Drink Mix
Three place setting of plastic cutlery
Very small bags of powdered sugar
Liquid cleaner for toilets
Liquid Laundry detergent
Liquid yogurt drinks
Ziploc Baggies (8 for about $2.00 US)
Ketchup, Barbeque Sauce, Mayonnaise, Mustard
Soup. I just realized that I forgot to take a picture of Tomato Sauce and the Pasta Sauces
Okay, so here’s the tradition:
After dinner, but before dessert everyone shares a
Accomplishment, and a
We have a little rule that the blessing should be something that you hadn’t realized before, but appreciate this year or something that is a new blessing this year.
I’ll share my bag for 2011.
My blessing is that when I am lost or scared, (this usually happens with remis drivers, by the way) I remember that there are many people praying for me and that gives me peace. Thank you so much for all of your prayers!
My accomplishment is that I can understand most of what people are saying to me.
My goal is to write some parts of the mission blog in Spanish and English.
