Why does needing only one item end up costing so much?
Forgetting to buy an item at the store sure can be expensive. After going to work for a few hours I stopped at the grocery store for what was supposed to be just the oil I had forgotten to buy the last time I was there. $38 dollars later, I now have the forgotten oil along with a lot of other items. I hadn't really planned on doing any additional grocery shopping this week. On the bright side, these additional items were the result of the sales week turning over so I did get some good deals. I bought several packages of meat which I put in the freezer and also more fruit. Not entirely sure how the Doritos found their way into my shopping cart, but snack food has a sneaky way of doing that sometimes.
Strange, but when I shop for my business I have no problem with compulsive purchases. Good thing, since my business has me in different stores multiple times a month. Maybe I need to treat grocery shopping the same way. I'm sure that shopping with a list and sticking to it would help as well. I'll need to give that some thought while I munch on those sneaky Doritos.
So today I'll do some work from home. My office needs some attention and I still have taxes to work on. Always plenty to keep me busy.
