My kitchen is tiny. The cabinets are so high that I need the help of a step-stool or a Boyfriend to reach the top TWO of THREE shelves! There is exactly one work surface.
My supermarket is tiny. I live near several grocery stores. The one directly under my apartment is too expensive and too fancy to deal with. The one down the street is crowded, noisy and pretty spare. The one across from that one sells mostly fruits, vegetables and nuts (all of which are good looking but overpriced). I don't have a car and grocery shopping is limited to what I or I+Boyfriend can carry.
