The perils of the bargain bin...

Postby MissE » Sat May 12, 2007 2:22 pm

I did my grocery shopping on tuesday, on a very tight budget. I was doing so well, walking past the cheap Arnotts Shapes and everything til I got to the frozen goods. My supermarket is rearranging, and they were doing a clearance thing and I just lost my mind and picked up 2 boxes of pepper steak pies, a box of pizzas, and 2 packs of sausages. Top it off with a block of full fat cheese. AND i picked up the shapes on the way back to the checkout!!!!!!!
I then ate 3 pies and a pizza and the shapes and half the cheese over the next 3 days. Almost cried when I stepped on the scales.

BUT then my Dad dropped around, and I gave the lot to him :D Let my Mum and him and my brother get chubby, I learnt my lesson. It may be cheap and 'too good to pass up' but in the end it was a waste of money because I gave it away. Now I have less yummy low fat food to last me, and its noones fault but my own.

i know what you mean. its expensive to eat healthy and sometimes these other options look too good to pass up with the price! well done for giving the rest to your dad :) no more of it will go to your hips :) just theirs ;)

look on the bright side you gave away the food instead of eating the whole lot. it is tempting to eat cheap fatty food but somtimes you don't think just eat then pay the conquences after, It really sucks somtimes but that's life hey.

It is not fair - damn bargin bins. I have a low cost food store at work and we regularly get bargins in there. This week it is boxes of Malteesers for $1.00!! and believe me the boxes are not little and they are still in date!! So I bought some and gave them to the kids to eat on the way home and I ended up eating almost a packet ............ NOT FAIR!!

mmmmmmmmmm ...... they are one of my all time favourites - malteesers, movies and popcorn what a combo. I am such a sucker for bargins - I cannot go past a bargin bin or flashing light at the shops without looking in to see what is in there - and most of the time I don't really want to buy what is in there - just do because I think I am getting a good deal!!!
