Keeping a budget has changed me. In fact, I think this whole budgeting thing is a big reason why I haven't felt like posting. More on this later. Right now I need to document history.
Thursday, November 20
I, Thighs McGee, couldn't figure out if a 12-pack of Scott toilet paper on sale for $6.99 is a better deal than buying a single roll at $1.29.
Fifteen minutes later I decided it is.
I am not an idiot. Blonde, yes. Flaky, sometimes. Bad at math, not so much. In my defense I drank two Octoberfests in 45 minutes on an empty stomach before entering Rite Aid.
So why the need to post this after a month of not sharing?
1. I'm buzzed.
2. I'm still in awe of the world of discounts. I've bought tons of things on sale before, but I don't feel like it was ever on purpose. Not having my Mastercrutch has made me more aware of my spending habits as well as the overall value of my purchases. Totally a new way of thinking for me.
3. I have never bought this much toilet paper in one shot before (this is where the documenting history part comes in). I am super excited to see how long it lasts. And I'm not exaggerating about the "super excited" either. I giggled the whole way home thinking about it.
So mark your calendars people! On November 20, 2008 I have 12,000 sheets of toilet paper at my disposal....OH THE POSSIBILITIES!
