My husband does not like doing the shopping with me.
It’s not that he doesn’t appreciate my company or the help. It’s the fact that when I go with him, our shop is typically $50 more than usual.
This is because I am a sucker. I’m one of those people who sees ‘half price‘ or ‘two for the price of one‘ and am instantly reeled in. Hypnotised by the promise of something special that will save me money!
Nevermind, that I don’t particularly have a use for a double ended head torch (let alone two!); or that it will take us a year to get through the 18 rolls of paper towel for $8. I just see stuff and have to have it.
My husband suggests writing a shopping list, which is what we did today.
It didn’t help. Sometimes, you just have to put it down to an irritating quirk; a trial of being married to someone like me…
