I usually have a long shopping list, because I have to buy everything my family needs. Of course I buy beef, fish, chicken, milk, eggs, little cheese, yoghurt, sugar, biscuits, detergents, soap, etc. etc. I think I stop here, I would not be boring. And maybe are enough three words: everything I need:)

I usually have a long shopping list, because I have to buy everything (that) my family needs. Of course I buy beef, fish, chicken, milk, eggs, a little cheese, yoghurt, sugar, biscuits, detergents, soap, etc. etc. I think I'll stop here, I would do not want to be boring. And maybe are enough three words are enough: everything I need:)

Nice job!  You wrote little cheese...and when you use an adjective (little) you have to use an article.  If you just wrote CHEESE, you do not need an article.

Also, instead of etc.., etc..  you would more likely hear.... and so on.....it means the same thing, but is a more common form of speech.

I don't want sound boring and be redundant by repeating the same corrections and suggestions as above; nevertheless, I have a question and one more suggestion for you.

What do you mean by "little cheese"?   "Some cheese" perhaps.

"I don't want to be boring" is ok; however, a more commonly phrase use, at least in the USA, is                "I don't want to sound boring", when you are relating (telling) something.

Va bene, ciao!

Con 'little cheese' intendevo dire 'POCO FORMAGGIO', nel senso che non ne compro molto.

Grazie per la corezione, ciao:)

Whenever I make reference to size, I usually use small or large; however, that is my preference--others may disagree.  Therefore, I would say:  I usually buy a small size cheese or a small portion of cheese.

Please, allow me to give you another example.  If you go to "Pizza Hot" (also known in Italy as "Pizza Schifo") and you order a "little pizza", the attendant will probably give you feedback and say, "You mean a small size pizza, right?"

Also, in department stores you will find extra-small, small, medium, large, extra-large, extra extra-large, etc., sizes.

If I go to the butcher, I always ask for either a small or a large piece of meat.

Well, I better stop now, I don't want to sound boring.     :-)  ;-)  :-)

I hope the above helps.

Ciao!

Of course I buy beef, fish, chicken, milk, eggs, a little cheese, yoghurt, sugar, biscuits, detergents, soap, etc., etc. (O: and so on.) I think I will stop here, because I would rather not be boring. (O: sound boring.) And   Maybe three words are enough: everything I need. :)  (little cheese=vuol dire molto poco; a little cheese/some cheese= un po' di formaggio)
Ben fatto!!
