    I Cannot Be Trusted At The Supermarket!

    When I go to buy groceries at the supermarket, I always come back with more than is on my list. I cant help but buy things that are on special. You know,.. things like 2 for $4.00 etc. Its is worse when I go to the shops hungry, then I buy more things I dont need.
