This week, both of the grocery suppliers for chain stores had incredible deals on money off for
Not a gallon, a liter. That's almost $2 off per gallon.
We got our 50cents off, but we almost didn't.
'Why?' you may ask. Well, because I've always been cheap and it's just a part of me to spend as little as possible on any given item.
See, I usually spend just over $400
Not a worry. We can do this. So, in addition to the rest of my regular shopping, I have the thought in my head that I should pick up some 'extra' things to be sure I get to my quota of $400.
I'm looking at everything as I slowly roll down the aisles even though there's not a lot of comparative shopping to be done and I am happily trying different pastas and some frozen meats that I usually don't buy. I'm taking my time and deciding of the family will like some new stuff.
Then I catch myself.
I am still looking for the lowest prices.
I start giggling to myself because my brain knows that I need to spend money but my penny-pinching heart won't let me do it without a fight.
In the end, I just passed the $400 mark.
The cheapness is strong in this one.
