Do you ever over-cater/order?

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Do you ever over-cater/order?

I have been known to more than once, but never as seriously as this:

Occasionally but thankfully not on that scale :shock:

An early on line delivery from Sainsbury’s, I wanted six bananas...........I actually ordered six packs of 1kg bananas.

To make matters worse I wasn’t home when the order was delivered and OH didn’t question the four carrier bags full of bananas! Needless to say we had a good laugh about it, we split them in two and each took them to our respective work and gave the excess away.

There's a nice big omelette in there somewhere!

I might purposefully over 'buy' tomorrow. My spice shop is selling a crate of 12 tins of plum tomatoes for £1.99. Bargain!

I would have made the banana ketchup too after a bit of ripening as it is :hungry:

Oh dear, that was quite an error! I tend to overbuy if people are coming but not on a grand scale and I rarely fail to put everything left over to good use.
