Hi, Lynne,
Hooray for you all as you move forward.

One thing we have had in place for the last number of years is a list of 
CommonHouse Staple items.  It is divided into categories.  There is a line next 
to each item;  the list is printed out and laminated,  held on the fridge by a 
magnet.  We ask that when we are close to running out of something,  the 
cook/whoever notices make a check mark on this laminated sheet.  The shopper 
for Cantines Island (I’ve done this job for years)  keeps an eye on this list, 
and the system functions well to keep our kitchen pretty well supplied.  

Something you may want to have in your CommonHouse.
My neighbor Julie has given you the lowdown on our meal fee system.

Subject: [C-L]_ Common house meal prices

Here at Gainesville CoHousing things are moving right along, with 5 of our 24 
houses complete! The Common House Committee is  working on setting up a system 
for our common meals, and would like to know what other communities are 
currently charging.
We are aiming for healthy and would like to use locally produced food as much 
as possible.
