Supermarket Bump

Was at Thorndon New World last night and as is sometimes the case, felt a trolley bump into me from behind. Turning around though, I find it is being propelled by a Labour Cabinet Minister!

However as it was Parekura Horomia, I am certain it was not deliberate as I don’t think I have ever met him. Incidentially he was looking a lot slimmer than in times past and had a very healthy selection of food.

At supermarkets I am a classic marketing subject. I will swap brands to save a few cents, and will buy things I don’t normally just because they are on special that week. I even spend time figuring out what size of a product is the cheapest per 100 gms! Yet the savings from doing so are so small compared to my income. Must be a good thrifty upbringing!
