I came in here for that special offer

Im all tuned in, I see all the programmes
I save coupons from packets of tea

Personally it`s been already a while for me since I discovered that bigger != better. The smaller the store, the faster you`re out from it and the less likely you`re to buy some crap that you didn`t need in the first place. Supermarkets usually waste both your money and your time.

I don`t claim to spend most of my time meaningful. I`m not a yuppie. I don`t have plans for every microsecond. Time is not money for me. But time wasted on something that gives you neither pleasure nor profit, nor gives it to people you love, is wasted time anyway.
