It’s Easter Monday but today’s post isn’t about Easter Monday per se. It’s about being in the right place at the right time but it is related to Easter.
You see, last Thursday I needed to go to the grocery store. I can’t remember why (probably because I needed groceries) but there I was. I picked up the typical needs – bread, some fruit and veg, and then made my way to the cash. The line ups were huge (they always are after work) so there I am stuck in the lineup.
Of course, now I’m bored and my eyes start to glance at all the aisles that I couldn’t be bothered to go in to (remember, I’m lazy). That’s when I spot the clearance tags and the sale on Easter products. I couldn’t resist and headed towards it.
Boy, was it worth it.
Right away, I spot the Kinder Egg Surprises that come in a pack of 3. Normally, at regular price, they’re priced at well over $3 if not more. Sometimes, I’ve seen them priced close to $4 which is ridiculous. I never buy them at full price. They were on sale for under $2 which never happens. The cheapest I’ve ever gotten them for was $2.50 and that was years ago. Naturally, I picked up a few packs. My big kid loves to build the little Kinder toys and saves them for dramatic play.
Now, you may think that I unnecessarily spent money that I didn’t need to spend but you see, given that I’m not always as organized as I’d like to be, I was not ready for Easter. I had nothing prepared and on Thursday evening, I still hadn’t thought far enough ahead to realize Easter was around the corner (yes, that is how busy work is right now).
Thus, in the right place at the right time. A few more minor purchases this weekend and I was ready for Easter with minimal fuss but only because of that one random moment. The best part was, I spent a fraction of the money I would have otherwise spent on those Kinder Egg Surprises.
I may not like shopping but I sure do like catching amazing deals. Sometimes, it just happens!
