Wow, when I got to the store I was so disoriented by it, I could have landed on another planet! For one, its ENORMOUS, there is not enough real estate in the city to make grocery stores this big. It should have printed maps (and maybe it did) right when you walk in the door. Or a greeter service that can take foreigners like myself around. It didn't help that I was shopping without a comprehensive list, I don't work off the cuff well. I work best with an extensive list which includes what I have coupons for, what's on sale elsewhere etc. .see also I Am Type A!
So after over an hour of wondering around and over $200 dollars later I have almost a weeks worth of groceries, I am exhausted and disoriented and I don't know how I am going to do this every week!
