Maybe it's just that I'm not so fussy, if the tooth paste we normally use isn't there, I choose another one; or if there is no ham I buy salami this week etc. After having moved about here and there and everywhere I guess I have just learned to make do with what there is - otherwise you make your life really complicated.
