Curses BJs! I Just Came for Diapers...
I suck at discount shopping. I go to BJ's Wholesale "Club"ostensibly for the fairly significant savings on things like diapers, butt wipes, and baby soaps and salves of all types. However, I never fail to leave the place with some stupid crap that I don't need.
Today the impulse buys that obliterated my savings were a big tub of hummus (not really that bad as I am a pretty big consumer of hummus), a giant tub of Ring Pops (darling Giblet demanded them, she calls them "nookie pops"), and somewhat inexplicably, a giant red ball of Edam cheese.
Now I don't exactly know what goes through my mind when upon seeing a 2 pound red waxed ball of Edam cheese, I suddenly decide "Oooh... I need that." BJ's is fairly insidious in that way. You go in for bulk paper towels and come out with 10 pounds of pork loin and a giant blow up Santa Claus for your lawn.
Such is life in our consumer economy, I am going to place these few paragraphs of whining right into the First World Problems category.
