I got caught out (again) with strategically placed marketing. A handful of groceries to go through the express lane at the supermarket; a larger than normal line-up; all the bright colourful magazines to stare at. Good Health & Medicine had a free gift - a pair of Everlast socks and sweatband - valued at $13!! - so of course in that split second before I had my turn at the check-out, it ended up in my basket.

Last time it happened was with Women's Health mag earlier in the year. Another free pair of socks. Which I've worn a total of once. As bedsocks.

Hi again Selina! I left a comment on your last post and then five seconds later saw your new entry. Hope you got it.

You need bedsocks? In Mackay? And I thought you were tough.

Wussy girly-girl.

Haha don't you have the mags in the checkout line...I normally end up with a copy of That's Life (although did come in handy on the recent plane trips)

Kek said...

Ah, you know I love ya! ;o)

With me, it's the food mags!! Then I spend ages drooling over them and sticking post-it notes in them to mark all the recipes I want to try.... then I never get around to it.
