    NEITHER/NOR,NOR,NOR........

    Hello!
    Could you please tell me if this sentence is correct ?

    I've got NEITHER sugar, NOR milk, NOR bread, NOR coffee, NOR tea, NOR pasta etc........etc......etc.......

    Or do I have to say:

    I've got NO sugar, NO milk, NO bread etc...etc...etc...

    Could it be :

    I've got NEITHER sugar, NEITHER milk, NEITHER bread....... ????

    Are there any other ways of saying that????

    Thank you in advance

    No, you don't have to say that.

    Could it be :

    I've got NEITHER sugar, NEITHER milk, NEITHER bread....... ???? No

    I have none of the following: sugar, milk, bread ...

    I have neither bread to eat, nor milk to drink, nor sugar for sweetness, nor salt for taste.

    Bereft am I of basic food and drink.

    Here I sit sans bread, sans milk, sans sugar ...

    I am a breadless, milkless, sugarless man.

    Bread have I none, nor milk, nor sugar, nor have I coffee.


    Not bread, not milk can I claim, not sugar, not salt.
