 h1. Dear readers,
 Shoshanna Cohen's recent post about supermarkets reminded me that one of the pleasures I've enjoyed most in my sporadic travels to other countries has been food shopping — sometimes in outdoor stalls, sometimes in huge supermarkets, sometimes in jewel-box shops that sell only one or two items. If you've ever visited a depachika you might share my sense of wonder. 
 As an exchange student in France, Shoshanna found a measure of homey comfort at the supermarket. But sometimes, when we just need to get the shopping done, a supermarket can feel like a labyrinth that slows us down and distracts us from staying on budget and buying only what we need. Two for one! Today only! You know what I mean.

 Speaking of staying on budget, Caroline Cummins recently surveyed several books to see what she could learn about eating real food (as opposed to the heavily processed stuff) while managing to shop on budget. After all, coupons aren't for everyone. "Can you really eat well on a budget without giving up your day job?" she asks. "The best of these books show you how to do it — although you may feel like reworking your life to make budget bliss happen is a temporary new day job."
