I'm a bad shopper!

Let me be a bit more specific :) It's not that I'm a slow shopper or that I don't know what I want when I get there. No, it's that I somehow manage to end up with more shopping than I thought I was going to get. An example may help to explain this. On Friday night, after I'd driven back to London, I went to the Tesco supermarket just across the road from me. I just wanted some milk ... what I actually got is listed below.
  • Milk - two 2 pint containers, one for the weekend and one to take back to Cardiff
  • Two ready meals - for the freezer, ones that I can cook from frozen
  • Strawberry trifle - three little pots of low fat ones
  • Two packs of pork sausages - on special offer - one for Sunday morning and one for the freezer
  • Three packs of soup - for freezer
  • Four fresh corn-on-the-cobs
  • Honeydew melon
  • Bramley apple - was cooked with sultanas and sugar today
  • Pita bread, low fat humous and low fat taramasmlata - lunch today
  • Maple and pelican plait - breakfast today, yummy
  • Computer magazine
  • Camera magazine
Now most of those are quite reasonable things, it's just always worries me when I think I'm gettin some milk and end up spending just over 30 pounds.

Ahh it's just gone midnight so I'll post this and head off to bed.

Take care, peace

Dave does the SAME THING! Went for milk and butter, an hour later, probably £40 and a few boxes of poptarts and other silly yet tastey things later he comes home :P

silly men!

I think my stuff was reasonable ... only the two mags were luxury items, the rest I'll eat (or ate ovet the weekend). I'm not a pop tarts fan myself, but each to theit own :)

maybe you need to make a list as you run out of stuff and force yourself to only buy what's on the list.

I usually don't make lists but they tend to be useful. :-)
