It is worth paying that little extra forthat flattering look and feel.Long sleeve white t-shirt - An obviousstaple which can then be jazzed up with youraccessories. A well cut slim fit style canmake anybody look slimmer.Short sleeve white t-shirt - As with the longsleeves, matches anything.

  8. 8. GROCERY SHOPPINGBUDGETING ADVICEfrom Pak n SaveThe following information is found on the Pak nSave website – www.paknsave.co.nz.Budget Budget Budget!!! Setting a budget is soimportant we wrote it three times.If you work out how much you want to spendevery week and stick to it you can save a littlefortune by the end of the year.Good ways to make sure you stick to it aretaking your budget in cash to the supermarket orcounting up your costs on a calculator as youshop. Maybe use the calculator on your cellphone though.Dont eat your groceriesWell not immediately. Make sure you eat beforeyou go to the supermarket or youll end up with atrolley full of what you feel like, not what youneed. And while thats great for snacking on,theres only so much you can do with corn chips,biscuits, gherkins and wine gums for dinner.Bulk up a bitNot you personally, you look great. Bulk buy.Sometimes buying staple food items like flour,sugar, rice and pasta works out to be muchcheaper when you buy big. Think of it as a long-term investment. Or maybe a short time foodsupply. It really depends how many mouths youhave to feed.Shopping TipDo either fortnightly or monthly shopping.This saves you time, petrol, and you buyless goodies because you shop less.CUISINES OF THE WORLD -INDIAIndian cuisine is varied and fragrantreflecting a 5,000 year history of interactionbetween cultures.
