After a two-year (positive) adventure, I took possession this week of a home that I built here in Zihua. I’m now charged with the task of making the home a home. This includes purchasing every single item needed (bedding, kitchen items, vacuum etc.). After two days of looking,. my intuition is telling me that I need to take a trip to either Acapulco or Morelia to fill up my car and be done with it. Although I’d love to spend the money locally, I’m finding it a real challenge to locate all the items I need. I’m guessing some of you on this site have done this before. Any suggestions would be helpful....

We are in the final days of our 6 weeks of completely setting up a house that was totally dead empty. It's been great fun, and an adventure. Everything you need is available here. Between Soriana (was Comercial Mexicana) Bodega Aurrera, Waldos, the mercado and just plain walking around with our eyes open, we have absolutely everything. We were fortunate to arrive 3 days before Buen Fin, so that made buying all of the appliances less painful. We don't have a lot of permanent furniture yet, but the plastic stuff is perfectly acceptable while we find what we want for long term, and we are stumbling across pieces in the strangest places!

We never even considered traveling to Morelia or Acapulco. If you get really hard up, use Amazon.mx

Hola
We bought ours years ago at the Commercial (now called Soriana). Was there a couple of weeks ago and they had a good selection of various types and sizes there, between the meat counters and the vegies.

I got a small, stainless steel, marine BBQ from West Marine. I would think they ship abroad, as well.

Amazon is your friend.
We are in limbo right now, the Weber propane BBQ that has been our RV go to has a different fitting than anything here. We have been EVERYWHERE, talked to everyone, now have a plumber thinking about it.
We'll likely have to take our own advice (if we don't want to use the disposable tanks) and get a new one on Amazon.

Nice item, but electricity is VERY expensive here.

For us, WAY more that California was, but SO worth it!!!!!

Electricity is included in our rent, along with AC, but.... we don't want to stiff the landlord or have the rent raised beyond our comfort level. Besides we prefer propane. Thanks for all the helpful suggestions. We will check out the Commercial asap as we also need foam mattress covers.

Where do you get propane tanks refilled? Our complex does not allow propane bbq's on terraces.
