Deals to be made!

I have the impression webstores want me to buy stuff.

Last chance! (At least until the next one)
Only this weekend! (But maybe we will have the same offer in 3-4weeks time)
Buy fast…we may run out! (But we probably wont) :money_mouth_face::money_mouth_face::money_mouth_face:


I love the bulbheads constant claims that thier products are going to be discontinued because of rising costs, so buy now on like every single product they advertise. Then the same commercial is on for 10 years.

Yeah, they may be discontinued in the year 2050…


I admittedly shop too much, but I’m good at watching price trends and finding sales on top of sales. I ignore advertising and keep targeted advertising turned off because compulsion and targeted ads seem like a mess of an idea. Anyhow, good on you for not taking those “only 1 left! Buy buy buy!” ads seriously.

It’s the exact same thing with grocery shopping. When you’re in the store and you see fattening cookies, crackers or chips on sale at such a good price you buy them because it seems too good of a deal to pass up, even though you shouldn’t be buying them because you’re on a diet or they’re simply not good for you. $1.00 for a pack of Oreos or Fig Newtons Sour Cream & Onion potato chips makes you feel like you have to buy them. But in reality that kind of stuff goes on sale every one or two weeks. So pass them up and buy them once a month instead of every time you go shopping.

I only buy meat at my local grocery store when it’s on sale. There’s some pretty good sales on beef, chicken and pork and sometimes I feel I have to buy the BOGO boneless skinless chicken breasts because they’re so cheap. But some kind of beef or chicken is on sale every week and I can afford to pass up good deals because I know in a another two weeks there will be chicken thighs or legs on sale or beef for $5.99 a pound. Ribs were on sale a month ago for $1.99 a pound. That’s ridiculously cheap so I bought some two weeks in a row. Last night I craved ribs again but they were at their regular price of $5.99 a pound so I didn’t buy them. I can wait a couple of months until they’re on sale again.

Anyways, that’s how grocery shopping goes. This was just my editorial opinion on the matter of sales.
