I remember when my ex brought home a 20 pound box of tuna steaks he bought from a guy running a fish market from the back of a truck.
“It was a great deal.” he crowed.
Yeah, if you like frozen tuna filets. We had that surplus of fish in our small freezer for months. Today, my now hubby brought home a 10# bag of spuds. I laughed, “This is enough for a small army!” He didn’t see my humor. “It was a great deal!” He crowed too.
Which begs the question. Do guys have a fetish for bulk pricing?
I buy two potatoes at a time because they are on the menu for the evening’s feast. It seems nonsensical for me to use valuable refrigerator real estate on bulk veggies that more than likely will go bad before we eat them. No, says my darling, the cost per potato makes bulk buying the better deal even if we lose a couple of the poor puppies in the process.
What’s a girl to do? I giggle at extra large family size boxes of instant rice and shredded wheat. He gets such a kick out of saving in bulk buying, I suppose it is the least I can do to just sit back and watch. After all, if he is happy, then I am happy. Just because I don’t understand his choices, doesn’t mean they are invalid or inappropriate.
What is it in ME that makes me question his love of a bulky bargain? Hmmm.
What do you think? Is it a guy thing? Do YOU buy in bulk?
