Yesterday saw me do the weekly grocery shopping. How one's pulses raced!
I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned this before but it's a continual irritation.
Looking for a packet of chocolate biscuits for Dad, (yes REALLY) I homed in on Chocolate Fingers available in two sizes. That's the packs, not the fingers.
Ah! Economies of scale was the unspoken message. Except that it was cheaper to buy two small packs than one large one.

A cursory inspection of the shelf labels is all it took in this instance, but I have stumbled across other items available in different sizes where it isn't at all apparent which is the best value.
Doing a bit of hunter gathering in Tesco should be simpler than that.

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made - Groucho Marx. (No relation to Karl).
