impulse shopping

So, we went to Wal-Mart last night.  We were looking for flour & a printer cartridge.  We came home with flour & a printer.  And a printer cartridge.

We realized that a new printer cartridge would cost $30.  (And we’re not even completely sure that a new cartridge will remedy the problem with our current printer.)  So we decided it made more sense to just buy a whole new printer for $30.  And the cool thing, is that we picked a printer whose replacement cartridges only cost $18.  (However the new printer did not come with a Black cartridge, so we did end up buying one of those….so really, we spent $50, but I think in the long run that it will be better.)

How about that for an impulse buy?
