Even though you made a great packing list, you forgot to pack some items in your suitcase. You had to go to the store today to purchase three things you forgot to pack (something you might not need right away; like aspirin or bandaids). While you were out, you decided to buy some souvenirs as well.
Write a letter to a friend about the purchases you made. You can illustrate this with pictures if you like. This should be saved under the category of Mes Achats
