16. We sort of live that way now...in Washington state

I buy veggies at the veggie store..meat, eggs, butter and some frozen stuff at a meat market a few blocks from my house.. we buy milk at the neighborhood sundry store at the end of our block..

my husband shops at an Ace hardware nearby..

we do use Amazon though.. I get paper towels, cat litter, cat food, tp, and assorted other things..I do like having bulky/heavy things delivered to my doorstep..

Our downtown is like stepping back in time..Everything there is circa 1930/40/50..tons of antique/junk stores.. Our favorite is "the tub man"..he specializes in what else? antique bathtubs..and loads of other funky things I never knew I needed..

Most of the restaurants in town close at either 2PM or 8 pm.. They are ALL Mom & Pop, with everything made from scratch..with local ingredients.. We also have a downtown farmer's market with fantastic local produce..
