A £2.50 paper cup of coffee. A packet of 10p crisps. Another packet of 10p crisps. A £1.80 newspaper. A single pack of chewing gum. A bottle of water. A chocolate bar. No, this isn’t my dream shopping list. It is, however, a list of items I would have once bought in an average day. And regularly too.
Because I ‘needed’ a caffeine hit to wake me up, that’s why; Because I ‘fancied’ a cheap snack; Because I ‘needed’ a drink; Because I ‘needed’ something to read on the train. These ‘reasons‘ are all absolutely fine. Provided you really, truly enjoy that coffee; Provided the crisps satisfied your need for food; Provided you finished the paper and ended up better off than you were before it; And provided you’re not bothered about saving money!
