Sometimes, this is so true, especially when it comes to food/groceries that I bring into the house.
For the last six weeks or more, I have had no bread of any kind in the house. I just refuse to pay full price. There is plenty of bread in the big freezer where I cannot reach it. Exbf has not gotten it for me for various reasons. But, that is okay.
Several days, I had decided to go the Thrift Bread Store. For various reasons, I never got there until last Friday.
Natures Own Bread 1 @$1.19
Flower's Buns 1 @ $4.29
TastyKake 1 @ $0.89
TastyKake 1 @ $0.39
hamburger buns--free for buying $7 worth of products
The $1.19 loaf of bread i whole wheat and hfcs free, preservative free. It is over $3 in the store. I was ready to leave when I spotted the long, dark rolls. The employees said they are made for The Outback. Delicious! So, I grabbed bag. TastyKake looked good.
At the register I think I was about $0.20 shy of $7. I asked what was the cheapest item in the store. TastyKake in the old bin was $0.39, so I got that. Since I bought $7 worth of products, I got a punch on a punch card AND a free product from the free shelf. Hamburger buns looked nice. Now, I have too much bread, way too much. The Tastykakes are chocolate cupcakes with cream inside and chocolate icing, perfect in a bowl or cup of milk. Yes, that is how I ate them, both the first day.
Plus, I was given another loaf of bread. Aargh!
All this bread would not be a post if exbf were coming on his day off on Thursday. But, I told him not to come. It is just too cold. So, he won't be taking half of the bread and buns home...sigh. And, he won't be here to store it in the big freezer.
I have had too many cheese sandwiches, too much butter and jelly on bread, too much bare bun with a Diet Coke.. I am planning more bread meals/snacks--peanut butter, banana, Miracle Whip sandwiches; BLT, toast pizza. I am incorrigible. You don't need to say it or advise me. I know.
Do you ever overbuy things you should not? Do you get sucked into a good deal? Like I said, I was giving some away, but he won't be here to get it.
