The Story of an Impulse Buy

MMmmmm… I went grocery shopping today.  I was being so good.  I made a list.  I dug through coupons. I ate lunch.  (I have an AFRTS* commercial permanently stuck in my head from high school about not shopping when you are hungry.)

As I strolled the aisles of the store I came to a sudden halt.  I could NOT pass up the Pillsbury Mini-Graham Cracker Crusts.  /Total Impulse Buy/  Cupcake-sized graham cracker crusts calling my name.  Telling me to fill them with homemade pudding.  Add a dollop of cool-whip.  Put some fall-themed sprinkles on them.  It all played out before me in the aisle of the grocery store with a cart already full of food (and I still had half the store to get through.)

So tonight we are watching some family television, eating our delicious dessert, and thinking, yep, sometimes it’s fun to make an impulse buy 😉
