If we are talking booze, then always large! Restaurant wise, if they offer portion sizes then it's probably not worth going in. I don't visit coffee shops that often (can't remember the last time) but I would have a small. Again though I would expect the quality to be average at best when being offered size choices.

I'm all for multibuy offers though - what's wrong with saving money at the supermarket? Freeze what you can't eat or if that is not an option then exercise a bit of will power. Only you shove it in your mouth...

Yeah, but if you have it at home, you eat it.

And if you go in a shop to buy one, you buy four.

So you end up eating four.

 


You might, but that is only due to your poor diet and lack of self control

 

(But I suppose it is easier to blame someone else)

A lot of assumptions here.

Well either you do have a loack of self control in which case QED, or

you don't in which case what are you moaning about ?

And when I had a house with space then I would have.  But I don't have the storage space to store the left over pinenuts, or a garden to grow the basil in, or the implements to make it, and it is still a lot of faff when you only want one spoon full.

Make loads and freeze in ice cube trays, when solid tip out and store in a poly bag in the freezer... Tip #65  Delia the Ex Spartan

You call that rude ?

22/06/2012 at 17:29

Yes.

No wonder they kicked him out of the Spartans.

Once upon a time there was Dave, a caravan, and a load of Spartans, and then, after a while, there was only Dave?

Sadly the company went bust, and as it was the company running club, all the Spartans got sacked.....

A packet of McCoys in the Co-op, 72p.

A six-packet, £1-99.

But six packet is "Buy one get one free", so you get 12 packets for £1-99. Yeah.

Why can't I just buy one packet for 16p?

I'm not stupid enough to buy a packet for 72p, so they force me to buy 12 packets if I want to buy any packets.

(Not forced, Wilkie shouts. Not. Girl not understanding economic duress.)

The government should legislate on this. Otherwise we get fatter and fatter as a nation, because we have to buy excessive quantities which (Mr ex-Spartan with his steely will aside) we may eat to excess, because they are morish.

If you can't afford one packet and don't want to buy 12 then go without. Easy. You won't miss not eating a packet of McCoys believe me. It's not life and death.

No one is forcing you to do anything. Economic duress says go without or find a less expensive option.

I watched the second half of the programme and found it interesting, but I don't multibuys in the supermarket the same as supersize meals out. A supersize meal is designed to be eaten there are then, whereas multibiuys can easily be stored for use at a later date.

Generally multibuys only work out cheaper if you save the rest to be used when you would next normally buy the product. I often buy tooth paste when it's on offer, but I don't brush my teeth more often just becaue I have it there!

Using th example of crisps from co op. If you just want one pack, it IS cheaper to just buy the one you want. 72p for a pack of crisps is about what I'd expect to pay these days. I don't remember crisps being 16p in the last 20 years except for those 10p packs of onion rings and space invaders. Oh and the packs in the multipack are often smaller. (Can't remember if that's the case for Mckoys though).

Maybe you can buy a special safe with twelve compartments to store each individual packet. Set a timer lock on each compartment so that you can consume the crisps at healthy intervals, say once a week, making sure the last packet is still within its best before date.

Another cracking idea I've come up with. I should be Health Minister or something.

Make the compartments clear and you are onto a winner IMO.
