Last night, as I tucked myself into bed, I pondered, “If I could relive today, what would I do differently?” My most glaring realization? I’d be more responsible about packing those plastic bags for shopping. Why is it such an ordeal? 🤷♀️
🛍️ The Great Bag-Gate of Sainsbury’s! 🛍️
To all my fellow shoppers, tell me if this sounds familiar. I’ve identified three types of us during my countless trips to Sainsbury’s. So, let’s play a game. Which one are you? 🤔
1️⃣ The Bag Announcer: This used to be me. Getting to the till, I’d launch into a monologue for the cashier and anyone within earshot. “I have so many bags at home! Why am I buying another one? But trust me, this is the LAST time!” (Spoiler: It never is.)
2️⃣ The Over-optimistic Juggler: Attempting to carry all your purchases like a contestant on a game show, thinking you can balance it all. Spoiler: it’s like trying to keep a straight face when you send your kid to school in uniform on non-uniform day. 🤦🏾♀️
3️⃣ The Car Boot Sprinter: Currently, this is me. Realizing too late that the bags are in the car, and then sprinting to retrieve them, praying that the queue isn’t mentally timing your run.
And if you’re none of these, then you are just like my sister Mandy. She always leaves with a bag and she’s a very organised shopper. This is specifically for you spontaneous shoppers because I know there are people – I see them! Those with their own personalised bags, trolleys, organised sections and compartments in their car. They walk around with a little scanner thing, scanning items, looking so organised. I look at them and think, “One day I will be like you.” But for now, I will continue to be like me.
Have you experienced these bag dilemmas too?
Are you a 1, 2, or 3? Or have you, like me, donned all three hats at different times? Share your number below! Let’s face it, we’re all grappling with the same bag saga.
