I think it takes a whole lot of will power to resist the temptation of good bargains. That’s why whenever I go shopping, especially grocery shopping, preparing a shopping list is always a good idea - for me anyway.
Walking into a grocery store with big “sale” signs adhering to the windows is always a bad sign - knowingly, I’ll end up with bucket loads of stuffs that are not on my list. I mean who can resist deals like buy 1 get 1 free, buy 2 get 1 free, buy 2 for x dollars… right? And yes, having studied a course in marketing still doesn’t stop me from falling prey to psychological pricing. I should’ve known better.
When I saw 2 punnets of strawberries selling for $5, overpowered by my adrenaline instead of my shopping list, I gave in. My rationale is there’s no harm in storing more fruits in the fridge. After all I choose fruits over vegetables any day.
