ASDA

I just spent £54.63 at ASDA.

I only went in for a paper and some stir fry.

O.K. so I didn’t really need to go to the superstore up near Sportcity, but it was on my way. I was traipsing round with my little trolley for nearly 2 hours!

The most expensive item I bought was an olive green swimming costume for £10. I’ll probably never wear it as I’m not a fan of white flesh.
I got 2 cheap mags and a DVD of ‘Closer’ for Kev’s valentine. I saw the film with Eileen last year. He’ll like the sex scenes with Natalie Portman and there’s a scene with Julia Roberts in her kitchen – and she’s got My Sink. Really, it’s true – I was so proud. I’m also so modest that I didn’t mention it to Eileen.

As well as a couple of CDs, a Sebastian Faulk’s novel, a scrubbing brush (56p), and some super glue, I picked up a magnificent stainless steel bowl which was half price (£5). I spent £5 on washing stuff and about £6 on food. I bought NO DRINK at all.

Got back to the car – I’d forgotten the paper. Had to go back and bought a computer mag as well.

My granddad used to run the village Coop. He said that a sunny day would always separate folk from their money.

I'm always getting "distracted" from my main purpose in supermarkets. One lunch hour, it took me three attempts (in three separate supermarkets) to get the things I actually needed...

Hello, by the way!

And, believe me, it gets worse the more you do it (I'm now into my 10th year of having left the Great Employed rat-race).

I'm no comfort at all, am I? :)

Just after reading this I went to Sainsburys determined to be even better at avoiding special extras than I normally am (which is pretty good).

As a result I spent £25 more than I normally do for our weekly shop.

They've got us, haven't they?

LOL that 'new' asda is a nightmare isn't it - there's just so many things to look at!
