Dear Madame L,
I just got back from a trip to Costco where the only way I could buy peppercorns was in a gigantic (like, two pounds) plastic bottle. Like, for a restaurant where they go around asking if you'd like some pepper on your salad. And the only way to buy sunglasses was in a pack of three. Etc.

Dear Single-Family Dweller,
Madame L suggests you buy your peppercorns at your regular grocery store and your sunglasses at your pharmacy.
Better yet, buy those things at your local dollar store. Yes, Madame L buys salt and pepper and sunglasses and reading glasses and ketchup and aspirin and all kinds of things at the dollar store.
Madame L does like to go to Costco on Saturday mornings to sample the food and buy a magazine or two. Aha! Madame L is going to go to Costco right now!
Thanks for writing,
