Be proactive. Start going into super survival mode right now. Save as much as possible to stockpile an emergency cash reserve. A few months before your move, have a fire sale i.e. sell any and everything of value. When in Peru, don't live in the expensive barrios in Lima. Try to get your girlfriend ...

Re: Where do you shop for [blank] in Lima?

Most Gringos are afraid to haggle. They just accept the given price, whip out their wallet and pay.
For Peruanos, haggling is an art form.
They are experts at it and are incredulous that someone wouldn't do it.
