Items I hate to buy:
I'm guessing no one really likes to buy this, but for some reason, I hate it the most. When I was in college, living in the dorm, I used to sneak a wrapped roll of tp out of the bathroom every day and secret it away in a cupboard. By the end of the year, I had more than a year's worth of toilet paper stashed away, which I brought to my new apartment. Yeah, it was 1-ply and poor quality, but who cares, it was free. BF hates that I buy the cheapest toilet paper (it's actually the 2nd cheapest, but he insists that that doesn't make it good), but now it's my house, my tp! I also sneak the ends of rolls from work and feel no (little) shame at this.
I love pan spray. Who doesn't want to be able to put something in a pan and not have it stick without using a ton of oil? But I hate to buy it. Whenever I run out, I think that maybe I don't need it, but then I miss it within days and often make a special trip to the store. I do buy the store brand, which costs less, but I always get really cranky when I have to buy this.
Items I have a price threshold on:
I will not pay more than $1 for a can of solid white tuna. I'm not picky about brands, but it has to be the solid white kind. Unfortunately, it doesn't go on sale that often, but when it does, you can bet I'm there like a crazy person stocking up.
Every now and then, English Muffins will go on sale at my grocery store Buy One Get Two Free. Because I know that this sale happens semi-regularly, it seems appalling to me to pay regular price or even half price. Thankfully, I have the deep freeze, so I can really stock up.
These have to be on sale 10 for $10 before I would buy them. Also, I often hesitate if I don't also have a coupon.
I buy a lot of yogurt, so it pains me to pick it up for regular price. Usually though I have a coupon, or if nothing else, the store brand is decent and cheaper, so I go for that.
Anybody else have certain items that you're a little crazy about?
