Wasting Your Money In Convenience Stores

October 14th, 2008 · No Comments

Full disclosure: I’m no saint. I go to convenience stores probably once a month on average. Now, I’m aware that I am not getting any deals at the gas station store on my Snickers or my bottled water. However, I’m also aware that I’m not breaking the bank or even affecting our family budget by more than .1% annually on these expenditures. It’s the folks who frequent these stores daily that worry me. The list below is not meant to be funny. I have actually witnessed nearly each item on the list below.

You know you have a problem in convenience stores if

  • The clerk knows you by name
  • You buy your beer there….by the can
  • You buy your saline solution there
  • You go there more than twice a week
  • You are there on lottery day
  • You do “mini grocery shopping” there

If you find yourself doing one or more of the above items then perhaps you should read The Cost of Being Unorganized
