Lifestyle Messy Haul Shopping

What I Bought From the S&R Members’ Treat 2017

I finished work early today so I was able to fit in some S&R shopping before it was time to fetch Yuri from school. We were planning to go tomorrow pa but then I remembered Yuri has an appointment with our dentist tomorrow, so we tried to pass by S&R to see whether the queue outside the entrance was manageable…

Lo and behold there was no queue! I was expecting the same queue I experienced during last year’s Members’ Treat so I was pleasantly surprised. Then again we were there early afternoon on the third day of the sale (Friday) so either the shoppers were already done shopping or haven’t arrived yet. There were no long queues inside the warehouse either!

Unlike last year, I wasn’t able to take photos of the goods on sale this year because I was in a hurry as I needed to be back at Yuri’s school by 3:30 pm. Also, unlike last year when I was with friends, this time my parents tagged along and I gladly accepted the company for the #seniorcitizen benefits lol.

I was able to read comments of some people saying that the sale this year is not as extensive as the past years’. I actually do not mind at all because I’m coming into the store with no specific thing I need to buy naman. I’m not there to hoard or panic-buy either. My mindset is that I’ll just buy whatever practical find catches my eye. And speaking of things that catch my eye, here are the stuff I bought!

Giant bag of chocolates – P500

Beside a bag of KitKats for reference

E.Wedel chocolates, Buy 1 Take 1 for P99 (This is originally 6 pieces; Yuri already ate the other one) I forgot I went back and added 3 more pairs of milk chocolate. The milk chocolate variant tastes better than the caramel white choc one, in my opinion.

Mixed Mess: Christmas Rush, Pigging Out, and Official Catch Up Week

So I’m giving up on dieting this month.

Pigging Out

Even though money is kinda tight (I forgot to include my World Vision kids’ noche buena in my budget plan! Sorry guys that I sent it literally at the last minute!), thank God there is no shortage of food around here. Thank you Lord for the generous givers around us and for the occasional extra money to enjoy food!

So even though I won’t be losing weight anytime this year (and may even gain s’more kilos – – even my puns are food – related gah), I’m just thankful the there’s always food on the table despite the sky-high medical expenses haha.
