Lin Nah will be leaving you info + links here for putting up on the wiki. Yes it is as opposed to doing it myself. Some of them require organising, wording etc. Mostly info + links I already have and so it is a copy + paste without prettying it up. Some will be links to where to find the info.

SUpermarkets do have a lot of the organic, dairy free, gluten free(incl bread + pasta), sugarfree , and food for special diets. However there's other shops too.

Eg if the bread/pasta/biscuits isn't in the bread/pasta section, check for the supermarket's speciality section or ask staff.

== Markets ==

(your name, date & time of arrival; try to sort by arrival time)
I like markets as they are a good place to find the best NZ local produce (especially the farmers markets).  "Farmers market" in nz means things they sell has to be made/grown within a certain radius of the market's location. They tend to be organic or spray free too. Authenticity http://www.marketground.co.nz/fmnz/35275/

Our kitchen has:

  • 4x Bowls, plates and cutlery
  • 1x Fry Pan, 2x Saucepans
  • Kitchen Towel and dishcloth
  • Stove and Oven
  • Fridge/Freezer
  • Microwave

Living/dining area:

  • TV
  • Lounges for up to 6 people.
  • coffee table
  • dining table for 4 (round and small)

In each bedroom there was:

  • Towel and face cloth
  • shampoo and soap
  • Full Bedding (2x sheets, Blanket with cover and 1 pillow)
  • Wardrobe (no hangers)
  • Desk with chair and light (on the wall above the desk)

We immediately bought:

  • hand soap
  • water bottle for cold water in the fridge

The supermarket is about 10 minutes walk away. Hope that's helpful.
