In the spirit of avoiding the hot button political and religious issues, I wanted to come up with a thread that is completely non-controversial. I went to the grocery store today and it made me think about what items I buy whether they are on sale or not and what items I wait until they go on sale before I buy them.
Some items I buy whether they are on sale or not: cereal, bananas, milk, juice, salad stuff (lettuce, tomatoes, etc.), deli items, soap, shampoo, tooth paste, cat food, cat litter, oranges, cheese, pasta, rice...that's not an exhaustive list, but those are the most common items.
Items I will buy only when they go on sale: chips, cookies, stawberries, grapes (depends on that one, sometimes I will buy them if they are not on sale if I'm really in the mood for some), pop (or soda as some parts of the country call it), fruit roll-ups (I love those things, but they are expensive), candy, black cherries, plums (that's not completely true, I bought some plums today that were not on sale). I'm sure there's more, but those are the things that immediately come to mind.
You can flame me for those choices if you want to, but I'm not going to change my mind.
