Merchandise Guide - Things That You Buy and How To Use Them, Cook Them, Etc.


Recommended Posts

I've never been sure which index to find things in, so I've divided them into three, mutually exclusive indexes:

1. Stores - Places where you buy things - stores, mail order, online ordering, etc.

2. Items - The things that you buy inside of Stores, what do do with them, how to cook them, etc. (this is where you are now - see the post below for the current index).

3. Thoughts - Any other Shopping and Cooking discussion not fitting into Stores or Items.


1. Where you buy things

2. Things that you buy

3. Everything else

These indexes were started by mktye and continued by leleboo - both of these members are responsible for helping to keep the community going, and should always be in your hearts and minds.
