    When I was staying in Santa Barbara around June/July last year I was incredibly jealous of your massive warehouse supermarket "Costco". That place stocks EVERYTHING you could possibly need and it's dirt cheap! You could buy boatloads of berries and fruit for a few dollars, bags of pre-packed chicken fillets frozen etc. I nearly wet my pants every time I walked in that place. Buy everything in bulk and store it for future use.

    Everything seemed pretty cheap to me (compared to Australia). Unless you're referring to real estate which I personally didn't look into
