We have purchased a house are hoping to move down to Ariege in May. I have heard that items such as paint and gardening tools are better quality in Ireland than in France. Whereas certain things are cheaper to better to buy once there.
leaving out specific food items (Barrys Tea and Taytos) what are the absolute MUST BRINGs and LEAVE BEHIND items when moving to France?
For example, the following:
Kitchen appliances, cooking dishes, pots
Fittings - for bathroom example, door handles etc
Bedding - quilts, covers, sheets, pillows etc
Outside furniture - chairs, sun loungers cushions etc
Toiletries - shampoo, face cream, cleansers sunscreen etc (I don't use big brands like Lancome, more like Olay)
Specific clothing - Coats, boots, shoes, winter woolies (sounds like I need them next year, judging by current weather conditions!!)
Have you any experience with any of the above?What do you get posted to you regularly from home?
Also, is my standard digital arial any use ? And my Eircom handsets?
Thank you so much, I am trying to gauge what I could possibly leave behind and replace pretty easily, and what I absolutely should take with me.
