Labor Day Weekend Impulse Buy
Labor Day Weekend is a time to relax, have fun, BBQ or just hang out. However, for me I guess, it’s one of those weekends where you impulse buy.
I’m not a big impulse buyer, I’m usually on a strict budget however, this seemed like one of those buys that you don’t pass up.
Over the weekend, we were grocery shopping at Walmart and I just wanted about 10 green chiles for a dish I was making. Well apparently we are at the end of chile season and just buying a few wasn’t an option, the only thing they had were cases. Here’s the kicker, the case of chiles was only $5. Yes, $5 for a case of chile. Josh looked at me and said, “Do we really need a case of chile.” I said, “No, not really, let’s finish shopping, and stew on it a bit.”
Well at the end of the shopping trip we walked back by the chiles and I just put them on top of the cart.
My impulse buy for the weekend.
So at 8am on Sunday morning, I was standing in front of my grill roasting green chile. I roasted half the case, I thought I had roasted most of it, but not so much, I still had half a case left.
So after roasting half a case of chile, I ended up with 11 quart bags of roasted chile, and 10 bags of whole chiles. I think we are set for the next 6 month with chile.
My next chile project, making enchilada sauce.
What is one of your strangest impulse buys?
