A bit of a rant?, makes me feel better at least.

We have had a few shop leaflets through the letterbox,
 junk mail really, i was looking through while drinking my coffee last night,

'This weeks food offers'
3 bottles of wine for the price of 2 - £9 each
10 cans of lager for the price of 8 -  £10 each
3 packets of biscuits for £1.00
mega selection box of crisps £ 2.50
2ltr bottle of fizzy pop £1.00
harribo only 89p a packet

so imagine buying crisps sweets and pop for the kids = £ 4.39
and a bottle of wine for one person at £9.00, oh they on offer might as get two then the third is free,  = £18.00
and a box of beer for the other person = £10.00

total spend in the corner shop £32.39 thats nearly a weeks shopping money for us, say for instance chuck a packet of fags in with that, how much are they £7 odd and there goes £40 quid in the corner shop.............. c r a z y  
 this really done my head in thinking this over!! i see family's and couple doing these things constantly, dont know how on earth they afford it
dont know what others think?

excuse my french but what a load of old shite, why waste money on those non food, suger filled crap items that people think are a bargain? ooh 2 cans free best get a box of beer in then? wow really doesn't make sense to me, i know i have debts to pay off but we never would have spent like this on stupid things.

And dont get me wrong we all like a tipple now and then but i honestly think we have enough alcohol  in that was bought, given and left by visitors to last us nearly a year. We wont be buying any thats for sure.

Here's another, for pizza, spend £40 this weekend on one food order and get 20% off next time with free delivery?
i wonder how many people would spend £40 on a flipping pizza?

The only decent one was farmfoods and most of that was processed stuff, came with money off vouchers but I doubt il be spending 25.00 in there in one go so even that one went in the bin.

My OH was telling me just the other day that a co workers OH smokes 40 cigarettes a day while at work and 20 a day when not working, so work 5 days a week = 200 + 2 days at home is 40 so
240 cigarettes a week and spends £91.20 a week for the pleasure

needles to say my mouth was on the floor after discussing this we just couldn't believe it
what a waste of money and your health!

chuffing eck
