I finally got paid today, which meant I could go food shopping. Anytime I go food shopping I always do a ‘big shop’ which lasts me 4/5 weeks. Any other bits I need I can go to a little mini market thing or something. Anyway, my point is, today I made a conscious effort to not over spend and just to buy basic stuff – which I did (apart from the crate of 20 x Becks Vier for £12) but I still ended up spending a small fortune.
I had it in my head to buy supermarket own stuff to save myself some cash but then when I looked at the price difference, there isn’t really THAT much difference between a lot of stuff (10/20p) so I didn’t think it was worth it. Am I just looking in the wrong places? I admit that when I go shopping I treat it like an SAS mission – non of this browsing lark. Just get in, get what you need and get out.
Maybe I’m more snobbish than I thought. Or I’ve unconsciously convinced myself the branded stuff is better – even though I’ve been telling myself for days I’m buying non branded stuff. Either way, the lure of advertising as a lot to answer for. Damn you advertising people.
You won the fight but you won’t win the war!
