Shopping


Went to the supermarket last night and nearly fell over after entering the bread section. Hot. Cross. Buns. Already!! What’s with that?!? I’m still packing away Christmas decorations and they’re getting ready for EASTER – OMFG!! Is this world in that bad a state that the powers that be pride themselves on making the rest of us feel like we’re constantly falling behind the norm of everyday society!

I mean really – what about Australia Day or Labour Day BEFORE Easter. I don’t care that there’s nothing we usually buy from supermarkets as a nation to celebrate these occasions! It is too bloody soon to be stocking Easter paraphernalia! By the time Easter gets here we’ll all be that bloody sick and tired of eating the damn buns that it will take the special feeling you get from consuming copious amounts of the things at Easter away from us. So yet again we get an overall feeling of being deprived even though the opposite is obvious from the early stocking of the grocery shelves.

Is this yet another ploy at controlling our minds to strip the true meaning of things away from us, all the while turning special occasions into merchandising mayhem? I mean seriously – what’s a gal to do?????

Personally – I am boycotting the early purchase of said buns and Easter eggs…………..mmmmmm Easter eggs………..mmmm chocolate!!! OK, maybe not Easter eggs…………

What a joke! They are only a ‘bargin’ if you planned on getting that wonderful something anyway. If you’re buying it coz it’s on ‘sale’, you’ve spent money you didn’t need to and haven’t ‘saved’ anything. Take my bargain shopping today. If I had bought 2 Christmas trees for DS1 & DS2 on a whim because they were reduced, I wouldn’t have saved anything. But I didn’t. I already knew that’s what I wanted to do so I saved money!! 2 for the price of one!! And then I got decorations for them – all half price, looked at bon-bons for next year (but I don’t think they keep?!?), considered more Christmas cake, shortbread, chocolate elves and realised it’s nearly New Year (not really appropriate now – is it?) and basically could have shopped till I dropped, literally. The Christmas cards are really cheap at the moment too and then I saw a really nice dinner set, how many diary’s does one need…………………………oh what the heck, enjoy the sales – I did 🙂
